Dorma Pivots catalog

DORMA pivots support door weight effectively in a variety of applications. Like all DORMA products, our pivots are available in an array of finishes to enhance and complement surrounding decor.

DORMA’s LM Series of pivots using brass and steel are designed for long life and trouble-free operation. Each pivot and pivot set meets DORMA’s exacting specifications for support of rated and non-rated high-traffic interior and exterior openings, extra-heavy doors, or lead-lined doors. Pivots for 20 minute and 3 hour fire-rated doors comply with applicable codes.

DORMA pivots span a wide variety of styles and applications that can interface with other DORMA products on wood, aluminum, or hollow metal doors and frames. They can also be used on doors of special design such as paneled doors, and doors of unusual weight, thickness, or material.

Pivots and pivot sets, durable and long lasting, accommodate doors weighing up to 1000 lb. Pivot sets are available for center hung, 3/4" offset, and 1-1/2" offset.  Components are offered for center hung, 3/4" offset, 1-1/2" offset, and pocket pivot applications. Floor bearings with numerous spindle heights are available to accommodate an array of bottom door clearances.

Center Hung walking beam top pivots and bottom arms are mortised into the door. Floor bearings are surface applied or grouted into the floor, depending on which pivot set/floor bearing is used. Pivot sets are available for doors weighing from 200 lb to 660 lb. Heavy-duty versions are available for doors up to 1000 lb. Center hung pivots and pivot sets can be single acting (must use an applied stop) or double-acting.
