ADA compliant door closer
The Friendly Access pivot hinge was specially designed by FritsJurgens® to meet the conditions of ICC A117.1-2017 and is in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act in terms of door opening force and closing speed.
System Friendly Access is a patented double-acting pivot hinge for ADA compliant doors. with an adjustable closer for doors and, like all FritsJurgens® pivot systems, Friendly Access is mortised entirely in the door leaf. Nothing in the ceiling. Nothing in the floor. All functions of the System M also count for the Friendly Access pivot hinge.
The door is able to swing in both directions because of the double acting pivot hinge .
The ADA compliant door can be placed in a hold position of 90º or -90º. Thanks to the self-closing function the door will return to the 0º position.
When opened from 125º and -125º, the closer returns the door to the 0º position.
ADJUSTABLE CLOSING SPEED
The closing speed of the wheelchair accessible door can be adjusted manually.
On opening the door, the speed decreases at 70º to prevent knocking against any obstacles at 90º.
The system can be used on single acting doors as well.
Load-bearing capacity: up to 660 lbs
The System M-FA can support pivot doors up to max 660 lbs (300kg).
Fits in virtually any door
The minimum door thickness is 1-1/2” (40mm).
For new and retrofit situations
The floorplate fasteners only need to be mortised 5/16’’ (8.0mm) in the floor.
