Gravity pivot hinges for full size 80" doors

A quick learner from AR says:
I am looking for gravity pivot hinges to use with full size 80" doors that are 15" wide and 1 3/8" thick. I don't have a ton of wiggle room under the door or above it if I add it all together. How much space would be needed floor to door and top of jamb to door for the 32-064 hinges to fit and function properly?

Paul Sr. from SWISCO responded:
The 32-064 hinges are not for full size doors, they would not be able to handle the weight.
A quick learner says:
Is there anything else that WOULD handle the weight? Some other kind of gravity pivot hinge?

Good Morning,

SWISCO currently does not carry a gravity pivot hinge that can handle the weight of full size doors. I checked around with a few different manufactures and I could not find anyone that makes gravity pivot hinges for large & heavy doors.
