In order to distinguish themselves from others, highest end property owners are looking further and further for styles of doors that compliment other aspects of their structures.  Some of the widely used standby options have been the pivot door, the sliding door, the carriage door, double doors, barn doors, split doors, french doors, pocket doors, secret doors, hidden doors, very large sliding doors, very large pivot doors, and very large pocket doors.  One option not often explored by many professionals is the Full Lite doors. Full Lite doors are a great options because they allow much more light through.

The Latest, Cutting Edge Door Styles

By Ronald Holmes

 

Homeowners and professionals alike have been faced with the ultimate task of selecting the exact door for the purpose of matching their design elements while also providing the appropriate functionality.  It is often thought that the two factors are mutually exclusive. That’s true in some case, but there are well-coveted exceptions involving some of the latest cutting edge door designs.

 

Many architects have turned to double doors, French doors, half doors, barn doors, hinged doors, carriage doors, trap doors, revolving doors, and cabinet doors in solving pretty much every issue thinkable.  Often, there is no single door style that will work in every single situation. Even Donald Trump requires different door styles to solve his problems.

Builders who use conventional doors often experience a number of issues with warping, cracking, breaking, and peeling.  Problems around the hinges, broken hinges, damaged door frames, and destruction of your precious molding and finish work are proven aspects of conventional door usage, because hinge style doors experience uneven weight distribution, more weight resting solely on one side of the door.

 

 

That is why, here at Modern Doors for Sale, we have determined that pivot doors and sliding doors work best in every situation.  Between sliding doors and pivot doors you can overcome virtually any kind of door problem.

 

Sliding doors are excellent because they don’t swing out into work or living areas like conventional doors do.  Thus, they save precious space compared to many door styles. Pocket doors are also great, because they slide into a secret compartment in the wall, so they are invisible and out of the way when not in use.

Pivot doors can also be a fantastic solution, because they have much better weight distribution compared to hinged doors.  They lend themselves very well to glass front doors and back doors. They also allow for much simpler hardware designs that can be constructed with more stability and elegance than that of conventional doors.

Commercial and high end residential property owners are increasingly looking for designs that add that extra flair to their structures, which is why some are requesting large sliding doors, huge sliding doors, large pivot doors, and huge pivot doors to their arsenals.  Hidden doors and secret doors have also been rising in popularity among the high end segment of the market. Many high profile customers, like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Drake, and Kanye West have opted to use both sliding doors and pivot doors with very good reason.  There is no question, you can achieve doors that are more visually appealing in areas where smooth operation is one of the most important factors.

Don’t forget that pivot doors and sliding doors can be made completely flat and warp free with the best materials on the market.  We also recommend doors that are made in the USA strictly from materials that are sourced 100% from the USA. Only the best doors come with the signature 50 Year Warp Free Guaranteed, which gives you the peace of mind you need when deciding exactly which doors to go with.

 

Pivot Door

Demand is on the rise for specifying a large pivot door for the main entrance door of contemporary structures, especially high-end residential, commercial, and industrial projects. The pivot door is unique in its presentation and the visitor’s first point of contact and the bigger the pivot door, the better.

The most significant increase in modern doors for sale is in the wood pivot door category, though selecting the right pivot door design and structure are primary concerns in large pivot doors made of wood.

While any standard method of building a pivot door might provide the aesthetic appeal envisioned by the client, designer, or contemporary architect, a large wooden pivot door is most likely to fail not long after installation.

An oversized pivot door made of wood will be the most prone to fail due to warping, bending, or twisting if it is featured in a front door capacity for the fact that it is sourced from mother nature and the exterior pivot door will have one side facing the atmospheric conditions of the weather while the other side faces the structure’s interior. A perfect invitation for trouble, if the goal is to have a pivot door which is straight and true.

Investing in a large pivot door can be expensive. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could make such an investment and not have to worry about having your pivot door warp?

Well, now you can rest at ease knowing Modern Doors for Sale has your back because thanks to new patented and patent-pending pivot door technology we can help you make lightweight high strength pivot doors that are fully insulated for climate control and sound deadening capabilities.

And there’s so much more:

How to Build a Pivot Door

Whether you’re an architect, designer, or avid do-it-yourselfer, you might like to know how to build a pivot door that doesn’t warp. This is for you.

First you start off with a torsion box grid structure made of veneer (be sure to cut the veneer so that you can lay it up with the grain oriented vertically in strips precisely measured for your door thickness) make the grids as small as possible (we use 2×2-inch to 3×3-inch grids). Glue this to the inside of the bottom plywood skin using formaldehyde-free glue. Next glue and fill all the voids of the torsion box with rigid foam and top it off with another layer of glue and exterior skin. Press and let cure/dry at 60 degrees Fahrenheit for 24 hours. Then sand and trim to perfection.

That’s the DIY do-it-yourself method to create your own warp-free substrate.

Once you have this base pivot door core as your substrate, you can apply any surface material to it to create your own lightweight high strength pivot door.

Or you can let us do all the work for you in our custom door core factory, located in the Great Northwest state of Washington, where every warp-free pivot door is lovingly hand-crafted and made in the USA.

How Big Can You Make A Sliding Door?

The natural question when designing a large sliding door or movable wall system is how large can I make it? There are many considerations when designing a very large oversize sliding door, including:

  • Total weight of the movable wall system
  • Sound deadening qualities of the panel
  • Will your door warp
  • How easy is the door to operate / do I need special equipment or hardware to allow the door to function?

14-Foot-Tall Indestructible Stile and Rail Door

Every once and a while an emerging technology lends itself to the most fascinating large door designs. One such company located in the heart of the Pacific Northwest specializes in the only large wooden doors which can be which can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years.

While this uniquely positioned company hailing from McCleary, Washington (coincidentally the home of renowned and unrelated Simpson Door Company) has established itself as the leader of large pivot doors and large sliding doors up to 50 feet tall and/or wide which not warp, bend, twist of otherwise fail (including full structure warranty).

You are most likely to find these big doors in multimillion dollar homes, commercial and industrial installations around the United States and the world. A 50-year warp-free guarantee is a tall order in tall doors, especially in a day and age when oversized doors are rarely, if ever, covered by the warranty which might cover the rest of the facility or project.

You will usually find doors over 8 feet tall on a list of exclusions at the end of the contract because “all big doors warp” unless they have Sing Core inside.

This project called for a 14-ft tall stile and rail French door.

As you might expect, doors engineered and built with Sing Core inside are normally one solid piece with the lite opening cut out of the solid door substrate. This large French wooden door project called for a full stile and rail approach to building the architectural door.

Thanks to patent-pending door technology to support inventor Peter Sing’s non-warping-door claim to fame, the impossible is able to come to life, even in when approaching the door design from a stile and rail approach.

High end architects, designers, millworks, and the best custom door manufacturers in the USA rely on Sing’s expertise to bring their unique enormous door ideas to life, without the burden of having to rely on expensive door maintenance contracts.

Sing has the particular long-standing reputation for making large doors that are lightweight (one-third to ten-percent the weight of other solid core doors), fully insulated for battling exterior door exposure to the elements and increased climate control, not to mention sound deadening capabilities, yet stronger than steel pound-for-pound.

No other door in the world can rise to such claims.

Even though Peter Sing’s company does not make or sell doors, if you think you must have such a leading-edge technology door in your home or office, it’s not that difficult a task if you know the secrets.

The best way, of course, is to have your architect design the door in question and spec “Sing Core inside.” In this way, any door manufacturer can build your door to spec with the appropriate Sing Core technology inside to achieve the results you desire, whether your door is an interior door or exterior door.

The next best method for securing a Sing Door you can call your own is to contact the local millwork or custom door manufacturer and order your door, just like you would any other door, only being sure to tell your local vendor that you want “Sing Core inside” your door.

Your favorite door maker or local manufacturer will work hand in hand with Sing’s True Flat Team to build a door to meet your specifications and expectations, and your door will come with a 50-year warp-free guarantee signed by the inventor, Peter Sing.

These doors are not designed and built for the value-minded individual. They are on the spendy-side of the door pricing spectrum, and maybe that’s why you’re likely to find them in the most expensive homes, military, or government installations.

If you are certain that what you want is potentially the best door in the world, and definitely the only one with the world’s best 50-year warp-free guarantee, then possibly nothing less than a large door with Sing Core inside is the only way to make your big door dreams come true.

Modern Front Doors

Amidst the landscape of the door industry modern front doors are emerging in the marketplace as more highly sought after than traditional front door designs. When designing, specifying, building and installing modern front doors, they can appear to look like any traditionally designed door, but they are very different indeed.

What makes our modern front doors so different?

Basically, unlike traditional doors, modern front doors are lightweight, high strength, and impervious to varying weather conditions.

If you look at the basic characteristics of a traditional door, you see a basic method of blocking an egress point opening with a slab of wood (or other purportedly flat building material) which articulates with hinges or sliders to allow and prevent access to a particular area. While a plain flat slab door may be very basic, modifications and enhancements can be added to the slab to increase the door’s superfluity, such as adding moulding or trim, cutting lite openings and inserting glass, or various and sundry finishing techniques to provide a certain aesthetic appeal.

Modern front doors armed with our patented warp-free solid door core inside are at least one-third the weight of their counterparts and many times stronger. Our patented door core has been independently laboratory rated at 620+ PSI, and stronger than steel pound for pound.

This enables the end user to possess a modern front door that is both lightweight and high strength which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail (including full structural warranty) for 50 years. A 50-year warp-free guarantee is unheard of in the industry unless it has our patented warp-free door solution inside.

This translates into incredible flexibility when designing, specifying, and manufacturing high end modern door solutions for residential, commercial, and industrial door applications because now you can build doors of any size of any available flat building materials that can be guaranteed for 50-years.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re considering a modern front door for a house, which could be a 10-foot-tall pivot door, or a pair of 20 x 20 ft. double doors for your factory, or a 40-ft. tall industrial front door, or even a pair of hangar doors to protect your aircraft, they all can be made of any material, have the highest precision and performance over time, reducing overhead and maintenance exponentially, and all of them can be backed by the same 50-year warp-free guarantee.

The most popular surface material for our warp-free modern front doors is any species of available natural wood grain because it is the most problematic building material in terms of warp with a relatively low R-value (R1) per inch, while building the same door with our patented modern front door core inside results in an R value of R6.5. This is excellent for both increased climate control and sound deadening qualities, while retaining all the beauty and elegance of natural wood grains.

Other materials used to manufacture modern front doors include aluminum, brass or bronze, concrete, fiberglass/FRP, glass, HPL, Kevlar, LVL, MDF, and a variety of modern steel front doors including cold rolled steel, diamond plate steel, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, and stainless-steel front doors, which can all be lightweight and guaranteed not to warp or fail for 50 years.
