Buying Helps  
 

Below are a number of explanations to help in determining what options you will choose from the drop down menus. For a comprehensive approach to ordering a pivot door, please refer to our Buying Guide, which provides a step-by-step guide to the process of selecting your pivot-hung entryway.


 

Net Frame Size

 

Choosing a Door Size

Because each door we make is sized specifically for the project, you are not restricted to any standard sizes.

Measurements to Know

When sizing the door you will need to consider two principle measurements, rough opening and frame size. See the image below for reference.

 
 

Rough Opening

The rough opening is the distance from stud to stud for framing purposes. We advise that you build a rough opening that is ½ in. wider and 1/2 in. taller than the total door unit. We find that this allows for sufficient shimming and adjustments during installation.

 

Net Frame Size: Width and Height

This is the size of the actual door jamb. When determining the net frame size you want to put in a number that is at least a half inch less than the rough opening size to allow room to square and level the door. For example, for a rough opening 48 in., order a net frame size of 47 1/2 in.

 


Glass Sidelight

 

In many cases, customers wish to purchase sidelights for their door units. We build sidelights and transoms directly into the door unit, so the jamb and sidelights connect seamlessly. All you need to do is tell us what kind of sidelights or transom you want, what size they should be and what kind of glass you want.

 

When ordering a door online, you must specify that you are also purchasing a glass sidelight to be attached to this door. If you are choosing yes to include a sidelight, you must also purchase a sidelight from the "Glass Sidelight" section (under the Shop section on the left of the screen). 

 


Wood Type

 

Choosing a Wood Species...

We offer a range of wood species to go standard with our doors. If you would like something other than what we have, in most cases we can source other wood types that are not listed below, though prices will vary.

As you decide which wood you'll choose, the most important factor is how the wood species goes with the overall design of the door and your project. If you have specific questions about what wood to choose that are not answered here, feel free to reach out to us.

 

Our Standard Selection

 
 

Mahogany

This exotic reddish-brown wood is desired for its rarity, strength, and beauty. It is very durable, and resists swelling and warping, making it ideal for marine uses and high moisture areas.

 

Walnut

Walnut wood is strong, hard, and exceptionally durable, without being excessively heavy. It is straight-grained in the trunk of the tree, but possesses a wavy grain in wood found closer to the roots. Walnut wood finishes beautifully, holding paint and stain exceptionally well, and is resistent to shrinking and warping.

 

Red Oak

Oak wood is strong, durable, and resistant to moisture. It is a heavy wood and finishes well. Because of its hardness, it has a good density with a medium to course texture. 
 

Cherry

Grown in the eastern half of the United States, Cherry was often used in original colonial American furniture-making. Cherry wood is moderately hard, strong, and close-grained with a high resistance to warping. Its light to reddish brown color deepens with age and exposure to sunlight.

 

White Oak

Probably the most popular wood we build with and more resistant to weathering issues than even Red Oak, this hardwood is known for its high strength properties and its durability. It's moisture movement is medium and it has a good density with a medium to course texture. 

 

Knotty Alder

Alder is almost white when freshly cut but quickly changes on exposure to air to light brown with a yellow or reddish tinge. The wood is fairly straight grained with a uniform texture. Alder is a relatively soft hardwood of medium density that has low bending strength, shock resistance and stiffness.


Jamb Depth

 

Jamb depth depends on the thickness of the walls into which the door unit will be placed. Most walls are studded out with 2x4’s or 2x6’s, and so, our most common jamb depths are 4 5/8 in. and 6 5/8 in., respectively. Usually the jamb is flush with the interior and exterior wall covering, with the seam covered by casing. 

We have standard jamb depths of

4 5/8 in.

5 1/4 in.

5 1/2 in.

6 5/8 in.

7 1/2 in.

If you wish for us to provide a jamb depth different from one of our standard options, please contact us.

Threshold Color

 

You may choose between two different finishes for the threshold cover plate: "Gray Aluminum" or "Black Anodized Aluminum".

 

Threshold Type

 

You can choose from two standard threshold configurations, depending upon your project specifications: type 1 or type 2. 

If there is any type of wood covering on the interior of the house, you will need a type 2. The type 2 threshold has a 90 degree angle on the interior facing side for the wood covering to butt up against.

If the exterior floor is the same level as the interior floor, you will need a type 1 threshold. More commonly, though, the exterior floor is lower than the interior floor and you will need a type 2 threshold. 


Handle Prep

 

Single and Double Bore

We will pre-drill the door for a handle with 2 3/8 in. or 2 3/4 in. backset. Standard bore diameter is 2 1/8 in.

The term "backset" refers to the distance from the edge of the door to the center of the bore hole.

Mortise

We can mortise the door for many entry lock sets. Please contact us directly to configure your specific requirements.

See the diagram below for more details.

 

Other

If you wish for us to prep for a handle you purchase from another vendor, you will need to provide us with the specifications for the handle or lockset so we can properly prep. Alternatively, you may decide that you want to wait and have a local carpenter prep the for the door handle. In that case, you do not need to provide us with the hardware specifications.

 

Standard Handle Prep



Swing Configuration

 

When you order your pivot-hung entryway, you have options when it comes to how the door will swing. Though 99% of the time, you will want a door that swings into the interior (in-swing), we are set up to build jambs where the door swings out to the exterior (pushing your visitors out of the pathway of your tremendous door).

However, when it comes to right-hand or left-hand swing, the layout of your installation site will determine the swing configuration. To determine if the door is left-hand or right-hand in-swing, imagine you are looking at the door from the street. If the pivot point is on the left side, it is a left-hand in-swing. If the pivot point is on the right-hand side, the door is a right-hand in-swing. 

Diagram of Potential Configurations

Pivot Placement

 

The pivot placement is the distance the pivot pin will be placed away from the vertical edge of the rough opening. Generally speaking, we suggest placing the pivot over one quarter of the distance of the door width. We find that this presents a solid aesthetic for most door dimensions.

If your rough opening is 48” and you choose a 9” pivot placement, the door will roughly have a 37” pass through opening. You want to ensure you leave at least a 36” opening. (Rough opening width - pivot placement measurement - 4 in. for jamb = a number greater than 36). See picture for details or contact us for clarification.


Glass Color

 

Standard Features

All glass we install is 3/4 in. tempered double-paned insulated glass. Clear and frosted glass patterns come with standard door pricing.

Closer

 

In commercial applications and in rare residential applications, we install a bottom closer. The bottom closer creates constant tension on the door’s swing to pull the door into the closed position. This means one must hold the door in order to keep it open. With a closer the door will not rest in an open position.
