Pivot hinges are exactly that – hinges that allow a door to pivot from a single contact point at the top and bottom of a door. Most other hinges are attached at the side of the door to the frame but pivot hinges are different in so far as they are attached at the top of the door to the head of the frame and the bottom of the door to the floor. Pivot hinges are usually used on doors where there is frequent traffic and doors that are particularly heavy. They can support the weight of a door better than butt hinges as the arms on the hinges prevent stress on the door frame.
Pivot hinges are ideal for use in busy corridors where the door needs to swing in both directions and perfect for lobbies and restaurant kitchens as these hinges are very discreet.
