Hidden perfection

The perfect hinge for the perfect door

The timeless beauty of hidden perfection. From this value, the craftsmen at FritsJurgens, work towards producing a product of the highest quality. With a passion for making making perfect something that is  unseen.

Our story starts

The FritsJurgens’ story started in the 1930’s. As an architect, Frits Jurgens, the person who the company is named after, was responsible for the complete education of the craftsmen of the Amsterdamse Droogdok Maatschappij (ADM) in that period.
As the third generation, we are proud of the fact that the skill, passion and drive of our inspirer is still the foundation for everything we do. Frits Jurgens was a master of technical perfection. Our company still is.

Mr. Frits Jurgens 1920 – † 1991

Our story continues

Since the start of the millennium, FritsJurgens has specialised in the design and production of innovative hinges for pivot doors. A characteristic of all our systems is that they are not attached to the floor but are attached in the door itself. As a result, our hinges are almost invisible. Additionally, this unique construction reduces the costs and time it takes to place the door. With FritsJurgens’ hinges, it is also possible to realise pivot doors in existing constructions in situations that have floor heating.
FritsJurgens’ hinges are available worldwide. We cooperate with a network of high-end dealers and partners. They meet all our strict demands in terms of quality, service and customer orientation. FritsJurgens’ head office is located in the Netherlands (Kolham).

Amsterdamse Drookdok Maatschappij

"A good design is innovative, functional, intuitive, beautiful and usable."

- Frits Jurgens

From dock to art

For a century, the Amsterdamse Droogdok Maatschappij was one of the largest shipyards in the Netherlands. Today, an artist’s village is located there, Frits Jurgens would have appreciated that.

FritsJurgens heeft een constante drive naar perfectie: ‘Wat vandaag goed is, maken we morgen nog beter.’ We ontwikkelen onze producten voortdurend door, zodat we ook in de toekomst voorop blijven lopen.

We streven naar tijdloze klasse in onze producten: zo goed en mooi dat ze modetrends ontstijgen. We passen natuurkundige, architectonische en esthetische principes toe in de uitwerking van onze ontwerpen.
