Regular swing doors have their hinges distributed along the door edge so the entire panel swings open. Pivot doors have their hinge point some distance in from the door edge so, while most of the door panel swings one way, a smaller part swings in the opposite direction.
Pivot doors have to be wider than swing doors to achieve the same opening. Their main advantage is to accommodate an automatic, hydraulic door closer at the pivot point. For this reason you will find pivot doors installed primarily in commercial buildings or retail establishments. They provide a unique and sophisticated entry system and a Wow factor that cannot be underestimated.
