Stegbar has developed an aluminium pivot entry door that they claim can be Tradie-installed in less than half the time of a comparable timber pivot door. Its contemporarily styled Statesman Aluminium Pivot Door (APD) combines light weight with a clever pivot hardware system, enabling the door to be rapidly hung and adjusted.
The Statesman APD can be colour-matched by anodising or power-coating to suit the rest of a home’s exterior. The design also allows for it to be thermally sealed and flyscreened. In addition to its highly customisable presentation, the Statesman offers significant time-savings for Tradies. Two experienced Tradies can install a timber pivot door within an hour under the right conditions; but in sub-optimal conditions such as where the door frame is out of square – which is common – it can take half a day. Plus on top of that you eliminate the cost of finishing, as the Statesman doesn’t needs a coat of paint.
Unlike traditional hinged doors, the Stegbar Statesman Aluminium Pivot Door’s entire 60kg is vertically supported by heavy-duty steel pins. These pins were extensively tested using a 100kg door. The Tradie just lifts the door into the frame; aligns the pins into the connectors; and then screws them in place. The pins can be adjusted for vertical and lateral movement as required. The Statesman can be adjusted on-the-fly while it’s in the door frame, making that process quick and easy. It’s also forgiving of less-than-square door frames; and it comes with easy-to-follow installation instructions.
The Statesman comes in sizes up to 1200mm wide by 2400mm high with a generously sized handle and up to nine chair-rails. There are additional options such as door furniture, different amounts of chair-rails, translucent glass and double-glazing. The APD’s design ensures the door’s weight load is held vertically so it doesn’t place undue outward pressure on a door frame. The Statesman’s special pivot system allows the door to be continuously sealed. As such it achieves a wind and water rating to N3. The seal on the door’s sill itself stops the vast majority of rain – about 90% – but whatever rain remains falls through a specially designed internal gap and drains back out. It’s a one-way valve so the elements cannot blow any water back in. Stegbar’s Statesman is entirely designed and manufactured in Australia.
