Pivot Doors – Meet the Euro-Wall Pivot Door

Pivot Door - Pivot Doors - Euro Pivot - Euro-Wall

Compared to traditional doors, a pivot door is larger and creates a unique entry point into a home. Pivot doors have an offset hinge that is connected to the frame at the top and bottom versus the sides like a traditional door. Offset hinges can carry more weight, which allows a pivot door to add an oversized entrance to most homes.
