Built for a life time

Pivot hinges developed by FritsJurgens are made to last for a lifetime. Our pivot systems are tested up to 1.000.000 open- and closing movement. Therefore, pivot doors with FritsJurgens Inside can easily endure 136 years of daily use.

FritsJurgens pivot hinges are hidden away inside the door. All technique is mortised entirely (and thus concealed) into the door itself. Therefore, pivot doors with FritsJurgens Inside need to be a minimum of 40 mm thick. There is no need for structural elements in the floor or ceiling, nor subterranean door closers when installing a pivot door with FritsJurgens Inside.

This allows for minimally invasive, and unwanted visible lines and details. Furthermore, all of FritsJurgens pivot hinges are maintenance-free for over a lifetime.

FritsJurgens offers 3 types of pivot hinges, each with its own unique details and features.

System M pivot hinge

For exterior or interior pivot doors that require a self-closing function, wall protection (hydraulic backcheck) or closing damping, we offer our most advanced pivot hinge System M. The M stands for motion, as the door automatically closes in an elegant, smooth motion to it’s closed position after being opened.

When the door is opened with force, the hydraulic back-check prevents the door from touching the wall. System M has a load capacity for doors ranging between 20Kg and 350Kg.

System M details

Suitable for: Rotation: 180˚, Rotation: 90˚ (in combination with door frames)

System One pivot hinge

For pivot doors or pivoting walls that do not require any functionality, we offer System One. System One functions solely as a pivot point, without any additional functionalities for doors ranging between 20 Kg and 500 Kg.

System One

Suitable for: Rotation: 360˚, Rotation: 90˚ (in combination with door frames)

System 3 pivot hinge

For moving walls or pivoting walls that require hold-positions at every 90-degree angle, we offer System 3. System 3 is also built for doors ranging between 20 Kg and 500 Kg.

A pivot door fitted with System 3 will always return to it’s closest 90-degree angle position and can, therefore, be fixed in an open, or closed position (flush).

System 3 is only suitable for middle placement of the pivot point and is not suitable for exterior or interior doors with the pivot point placed on the side of the door. System 3 only suitable for doors with a middle placed pivot point.

System 3 details

Suitable for: Rotation: 360°

All FritsJurgens pivot hinges are double-acting and are suitable for a wide range of door materials. From steel-framed glass pivot doors to wooden, or even marble pivot doors.
