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.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Find the Right Glass Door for Your Patio
Pivot DoorsThe pivot door works like a hinged door in that it swings in, out — or both. But unlike a hinged door, a pivot door is supported on pivots and pivot boxes. This allows the weight of the door to rest in from the edge, putting the stress closer to the center. This means that a really large opening with a single panel can be achieved. 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. But consider that these doors can add much to the intrinsic value of your home.Did you add new patio doors? We'd love to see how you designed the transition from indoors to out.

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?

pic doesn't go w/ msg, wanted msg You state that sliding glass doors can be available in 8-10 feet wide, but we actually have a 16 foot wide sliding patio door! It consists of 2 fixed 4 ft glass panels on the ends, with the 2 center panels opening/meeting together in the middle, creating an 8 ft opening when both doors are opened. It's fabulous for our mountain view!
