Hello! I am looking at your pivot hinges for closet doors. I am replacing a house full of old ugly louvered bifold closet doors. I would ideally like to replace them with flush hollow core doors on pivot hinges to achieve a more modern look. The hinges I see are labeled for bi-fold doors, but as long as the weight was kept light (hollow core), and the size was the same (mine are mainly two 24" doors per closet opening), is there any reason I cannot use these hinges to hang regular doors rather than bifold?

We have hinges as well as a complete track and hardware kit for 48" openings.
Normally for a 48" opening 4 panels would be used with a maximum panel width of 11-13/16"; good for door panels weighing up to 30 pounds each.
Take a look at SWISCO product code 23-505, 4' Bifold Door Track and Hardware Kit, 4 Panel.
See SWISCO product code 23-401 for the associated hinge.
