We are really keen on getting a pivot door as an entrance door in our new build. Our builder has flagged a few issues and asked us to reconsider.
I'm keen to hear from people that have, or had pivot doors. Also worth noting if it was a <1.4m or >1.4m pivot door.
The issues flagged was:
- Sealing and insulation - it's a bit trickier as some of the door gos in, and some goes out.
- Safety, little hands and tails getting caught in the gap which you can't see due to the door being in the way.
- Mind of it's own! - they have had clients where the door opens unintentional, I assume that's something to do with the sealing/draft/pivot mechanism.
Thank you in advance!
