FritsJurgens pivot doors

A pivot door is a frameless door that rotates around an imaginary axis. Previously a pivot door could be fitted only by using a device in the floor. Thanks to the innovative FritsJurgens pivot door hinge that is now a thing of the past and pivot doors can be used simply in both new and existing situations.
The FritsJurgens pivot door hinge makes it possible to have a frameless door and ensures a smooth, pure wall appearance. The frameless doors require no frames, slats, door cranks, spring latches, end plates or stops. This gives a minimalist architectural appearance in both the open and the closed position with few disruptive lines. Moreover, the FritsJurgens mechanism permits large, heavy doors with a free direction of rotation,  which increases the architect’s design freedom.

Architecture

Pivot doors are movable walls. In a closed position they are virtually invisible; in an open position they can determine the space. It is precisely this that is the major strength of the pivot door: it is a rotating part of a wall that can influence space, functionality and perception.
