About our pivot doors
The ultimate entrance statement
As an exclusive supplier of RK Door Systems’ products, we’re proud to be able to offer their entire range of aluminium pivot doors. As outlined underneath the ‘our range’ heading below, the prestigious pivot door style is available for all their door designs, with the added benefit that the pivot mechanism can accommodate doors of up to 2m wide x 4m high in a single panel. With all this, a U-value of just 0.72 and PAS24:2016 and Secured by Design security accreditations as standard, what’s not to love?!
How a pivot door works
Unlike a regular entrance door (where the hinges are placed on the side), pivot doors’ hinges are situated on the top and bottom of the door, enabling them to rotate on a vertical axis. What you’re left with is an uninterrupted view of both sides of your door, which creates a really unique and contemporary look and feel. Despite the grand appearance of these types of doors, the actual technology is pretty simple and it goes back many centuries. Early versions of the pivot door were found in the ancient city of Persepolis in modern Iran.
Benefits of pivot doors
There are many benefits of incorporating a pivot door into your home. We’ll summarise these briefly below:
Due to the way they operate, pivot doors can be made much larger than regular front doors
As pivot doors are supported at the head and base, they tend to be more stable than the side hinges used on traditional doors
The fact that the doors open via a pivot rather than by swinging means that they don’t take up as much space as hinged doors
Because you open pivot doors by simply walking through them and letting the door fall shut behind you, they have optimal ease of use, even when your hands are full
Want to let the outside in? It’s easy to set your pivot doors at a 90-degree angle to create an inviting feel

Frequently Asked Questions
About pivot doors
Why should I choose a pivot door for my home?

How secure are RK’s pivot doors?
Security is placed right at the forefront of every single pivot door in the RK Door Systems range. Manufactured from premium German components, all models feature full PAS24:2016 and Secured by Design security certifications as standard. This means you have the ultimate levels of protection from outside elements and unwanted intruders.

RK has a wide range of standard colours to choose from, and for those who want a truly custom door, many more special colours and finishes are available at an extra cost. To use an example, they even offer a unique planked door that gives a true timber look without all the maintenance that’s associated with actual timber doors.
Do you have a price list for your pivot doors?
Due to the seemingly unlimited number of design options and combinations, we unfortunately don’t have a definitive price list for RK Door Systems’ pivot doors. We do, however, provide free home surveys to all customers, and we’d be able to give you an exact quote once we know your measurements and what yours and your family’s requirements are.
