How wide is the door?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Each door was individually designed and pivots to open and close. Decks just outside are tiled with ceramic slats designed to look like wood. Like the exterior's fiberboard, the ceramic creates the warmth of wood, without the maintenance.

Because of the door's operation and configuration, it isn't really suitable for an environment where any screening is needed (unless, of course, it leads to a screened porch).Cost: Like the other large glass patio doors such as the lift/slide and the folding door, the pivot door is going to be more costly than a standard French or sliding glass door.

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Entryway Appeal Can Hinge on a Pivot Door
Hardware is a crucial element in the design of a pivot door. The type of pivot used (offset, center hung, pocket) is a function of the architecture of the home. For example, an offset hung door can be opened 180 degrees, whereas this wouldn't be possible with a center-hung door. The other hardware element is the closer, which is the bit of hardware that keeps the door from slamming shut after it's been opened. While many closers are fully visible (think of the piston-type closer on a storm door), they are usually concealed so there isn't any ugly box on the door. Because they are concealed, it's important to coordinate the installation of the closer with the surrounding structure. If the closer is located in the floor slab, for example, a boxout has to be precisely placed where the closer will be so that concrete doesn't have to be chipped out later.Even with this extra bit of coordination, a pivot door is really the right choice to achieve the big opening that is so much a part of contemporary architectural design.Tell us: Would you include a pivot door in your dream house?
