Pivots reduce stress on the frame by distributing the door weight throughout the floor and structure. By taking advantage of the structure strength, this makes a pivot the ideal solution for heavy doors. Center and pocket pivots also provide an aesthetic option for an opening.
Ives offers a complete line of 3/4" offset, 1-1/2" offset, center hung, intermediate, pocket and power transfer pivots with all exposed parts made of brass or stainless steel for maximum corrosion resistance. The offerings include high strength brass and stainless steel forgings, as well as castings for fire-rated and non-rated doors, combined with precision bearings for smooth operation. The positive locking vertical adjustment mechanism allows the installer to precisely position the door and balance the load.
