Rebecca Gross added this to 6 Types of Glass Doors and Their Transparent Benefits27 August 2015

BenefitsA series of pivot doors can be angled to direct or obstruct breezes. Pivot doors can generally be bigger and heavier than single doors or French doors, because the weight-bearing point is more centred and it supports two sides of the frame, rather than just one. Thus, the opening space can be wider than a single door. However, the open door will obstruct a portion of this. Because the pivot door sits across both sides of the structure when open, a clear space needs to be both in front of and behind the door – the width of this will depend on the position of the pivot.
