Door of the Week – Flush Door w/Pivot Application

This Flush door doesn’t look all that exciting on the outside—but it’s what’s on the inside that counts! This door was delivered to Snowmass, Colorado and is quite different from regular Flush doors. First, we use thick veneers (called skins) in our Flush doors—not 1/64″ paper thin material like many competitive doors. Second, our LVL engineered core on the inside ensures stability and straightness, despite this door’s massive size (3′/6″ W x 8′/0″ H x 2-1/2″ T). Last, we mortised a heavy-duty Rixson pivot into the top and bottom of the door slab for a unique no-hinges center pivot application. The species is White Oak, with a wire brushed distress and a custom deep-pocket mortise for the lockset.
