They work well but are a bit less easy than a standard 36" wide conventional hinge door

Hello, we offer lots of contemporary or modern doors in solid mahogany wood with glass or stainless steel aplied, you can view some of our contemporary doors on our website http://www.decodesigncenter.com/products/exterior-doors/contemporary-entry-doors/ by going thru the different pictures. Be careful with "steel" or wrought iron because usually steel will rust even though powder coated. If you want a metal, then use aluminum which is rust free less maintenance.

For however wide the door is, you should have that much room in 360 degrees of the swing.

For example if this door shown is 48" wide, you should factor in 48" clear - 360 degrees around the entire door swing. Also make sure it is free of obstructions outside of the 48" diameter for people entering, waiting, standing outside of the door path of travel.

48" is the minimum we will use for a pivot door. You need 6-8" to clear the door, anything less will be a big inconvenience down the road. I dont think this one has enough clearance.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Entryway Appeal Can Hinge on a Pivot Door
Most pivot doors are custom designs and larger than standard doors; they can easily cost $10,000 and up. But they have tremendous architectural appeal.They are large, simple rectangles that are more like pieces of the surrounding wall than a separate architectural element. In this way a pivot door is really at home in a modernist design. Here all of that glass and the metal frame become, magically, a way into and out of a home.

October 29, 2013
The pivot door is a dramatic alternative to common exterior doors that swing or slide open. They can be larger and made out of metal, stone and other materials heavier than typical swing doors, because they are held up from below in lieu of being hinged at the side. A 48-inch swing door, for example, would be very heavy, and the hardware would have to be quite large to support it. Therefore, the chances the door would sag and malfunction are greater than with a pivot door.
