Wooden pivot doors

Timeless wooden doors

From classic to modern, wooden pivot doors are timeless and suitable for a wide range of applications. In addition to wooden pivot doors, it is also possible to apply the FritsJurgens pivot door systems in glass pivot doors combined with wood. Pivot doors are applied both inside and outside and are suitable for both new as well as renovation projects.

Warm and invisible

In addition, wooden elements create a warm interior. The FritsJurgens hinges are invisible, and as a result all attention goes to the aesthetic beauty of the door. The fittings of FritsJurgens are completely concealed in the top and bottom of wooden pivot doors. Only a small footplate and ceiling plate are visible.

Wide range of possibilities for wooden pivot doors

Pivot doors have been applied for many decades. Often in combination with other materials, such as glass. In terms of application, the solid wooden outside door is a common solution. This in combination with draft-proof profiles and good sealability. Wooden inside doors and pivoting doors have a great added value in the design of a building or home. Inside doors often function as passageways and pivoting walls are used as “room divider”. The room gets an entirely different mood when the pivoting door is opened or closed. The possibilities for wooden pivot doors are endless. Get inspired by a wide selection of examples.
