The steel artworks on the doors give steel in pivot doors a new dimension. Not only are the designs stunning, they have a special personal meaning for the residents as well.

Words by the architects


Hidden in the door

Besides art and design, functionality is also important. Inside these pivot doors is the System M pivot hinge by FritsJurgens. Almost invisible, like all systems by FritsJurgens, because they are integrated in the door itself. Only a small ceiling- and floor plate are visible. The attention goes towards the design of the pivot door, one with the interior.

Smart installation

Every pivot hinge system by FritsJurgens is easy and quick to install, thanks to the full integration in the top and bottom of the door. Structural elements and floor installations are not necessary. Just the small and after installation barely visible floor- and ceiling plates have to be placed. The floor plate fasteners only have to be mortised 8mm in the floor. This means that the systems are suitable for every type of floor, even when floor heating is applied.
