Pivoting Center Hung Doors

Variations of plan views of a Pivoting Center Hung door drawn open, closed, and in operation

A Pivoting Center Hung Door is a door that is supported by a pivot that is recessed in the floor at a point located on the center line of the door’s thickness. It can be either single-swing or double acting. When used on a double acting door, the edges of the door cut the radius edge to allow the door to swing in both directions. They can be used on many door types, and common applications are rescue hardware applications in hospitals or other healthcare facilities. The center hung pivots are mortised into the top and bottom of the door, which provide a low profile and are often unnoticeable.
