the door and how it is hinged -- what is that called? Manufacturer -- or purely custom?

I've used this type of door as a surprise moving wall panel(secret panel). I've always wanted to put up a standard front door (non functional) and have the side wall be this type of door for a special surprise for the visitor. Such fun.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Entryway Appeal Can Hinge on a Pivot Door
Using compression seals, a technology that was used on World War II fighting ships, these doors perform every bit as well as a standard swing door, keeping out wind, water and bugs. In some respects a pivot door uses the same components as a swing door. A threshold, jambs and head are all necessary to create a seal between outside and inside. How a pivot door closes and the tightness of the seal are important to the overall performance of the door. You want a seal that keeps out the elements while being easy to operate. Beware a door that shows daylight around it when closed. And beware a door that is so tightly sealed that it takes two hands and a strong tug to get it open.All exterior doors should have some protection from the weather, so placing the door in a protected area is the smart thing to do.
