We choose movement

Always moving forward

Standing still doesn’t suit us. We are constantly moving and improving, and so are pivot door designs. We don’t want to keep up – we want to stay in the lead. That’s why we work on the best possible door movement out there.

The element of movement

The experience of a door goes beyond looks. Incorporating the element of movement into a doors’ design takes a passageway to the next level: to an experience.

Every part of the door’s movement is entirely under control: from backcheck to closing damping, you choose.

Movement is not only created by our hinges – FritsJurgens doesn’t stand still when searching for the perfect pivot solutions.

Striving for perfection is in our human nature. Many preceded us and found ingenious systems in their search that we can utilize to create better pivot solutions.

How does the hinge make the door move?
By converting hydraulic power into movement. The oil is pushed through small channels when the door opens, creating the exact right amount of resistance for the door to open smoothly without gaining too much speed. When the door closes, the oil flows back through these small channels, once again creating the exact right amount of resistance for the door to close smoothly at the right speed.

We choose continuous improvement
