Pemko offset pivots are recommended for high-traffic interior or exterior doors, or any door where aesthetics are especially important to the overall design. They are especially useful for extra-heavy doors since they have the ability to carry a lot more weight than butt hinges. Pivots are often sold in sets and offset pivots provide better weight distribution overall, depending on the type of door you use.
Since pivot hinges tend to not loosen over time, once installation is complete, you rarely have to do any real maintenance on the doorways or the pivots themselves. Every product in Pemko’s considerable catalogue of pivot sets is warrantied for the life of the entryway, with only a few exceptions to that list with those holding on a ten-year warranty.
Unlike center hung pivots where the pivots are completely concealed, offset pivots will be visible but only minimally so. In exchange for its slight visibility, offset pivots can take more weight than their completely invisible relatives. This is particularly helpful in commercial builds or where a particularly heavy door set is selected.
With Pemko’s warranties and quality assured, it’s no wonder that many consumers select Pemko pivots for their needs.
