What is a Custom Aluminum / Wood Clad Pivot Door?

A custom aluminum / wood clad pivot door combines the benefits of aluminum and wood with glass to create a sleek and contemporary look for a durable, functional, and striking entryway door. In contrast to traditional hinged doors, pivot doors modernize the appearance of your home because they operate by turning around a spindle, making the doors ideal for openings that scale from the normal to the ultra-large dimensions.

The integration of glass into the design provides unobstructed views (though you can choose a glass that offers more privacy) and a seamless transition between the interior and exterior spaces. 

While pivot doors are generally renowned for maximizing space, aluminum / wood clad pivot doors, in particular, offer a unique blend of aesthetics and functionality – providing the warmth and natural appeal of wood while offering the durability and low maintenance of aluminum.
