OFFSET HUNG PIVOT INFORMATION AND DETAILS
Why Pivots Are Better Than Hinges:
When a door is hung on a pivot, the entire weight of the door is carried by the bottom pivot resting on the floor. Since the
screws in the top pivot are perpendicular to the pivot and at right angles to the opening leverage, the door is hung in sheer
rather than in tension and is less likely to pull away from the jamb.
Offset Hung Doors assure a snug fit into the opening allowing a weathertight seal using both side and top stops A bottom seal can also be attained by using a panic threshold.
