A pivot door is a symbol of hidden perfection. No visible frame hinges, but an invisible vertical axis which allows the door to open both inwardly and outwardly. Every FritsJurgens® pivot hinge system is fully-mortised into the top and bottom of the door—perfect in terms of functionality and appearance. System 3 provides heavy-duty closer function for 360º rotating doors and is perfect for space partitioning applications.
FritsJurgens System 3 has three functions: rotation, closing and hold positions. System3 can turn through 360˚ and is characterised by a hold position at every quarter of a circle.
The System 3 hinge is virtually indestructible. Built from high performance materials, the system is maintenance-free. Our rigorous testing has shown that even after 1 million cycles (similar to 136 years of daily use) System 3 still behaves flawlessly. System 3 packs the highest corrosion resistence (according to the standard EN 1154, class 4). Even the most diverse conditions do not affect the operation of this system.
Thanks to the innovative design of System 3, the door requires a slight touch to start moving, then it continues to rotate by itself thanks to the patented spring construction. The spring-loaded door turns from each 45º in both directions and stops in the desired direction. Thanks to precise damping the door comes to rest in the hold position after two movements.
FritsJurgens System3 is suitable for fire-resistant doors, soundproof doors, doors with draught-excluding, windproof and waterproof profiles, and burglar-resistant doors. For more information please contact one of our dealers or partners in your area.
System 3 is fully-mortised into the top and bottom of the door: no structural elements in floor and ceiling.
System 3 can support large and heavy doors up to max 500 kg thanks to high performance and corrosion resistant materials like duplex stainless steel and anodized aluminium.
The thickness of System 3 is only 34 mm.
Built from materials of the highest quality, the system is maintenance-free.
The floorplate fasteners only need to mortise 8mm in the floor, which means System 3 can also be combined with underfloor heating.
The innovative design of our hinge systems means the gap between the door and jamb can be adjusted with the door fully-loaded.
Ideal for large, heavy and tall timber, steel, framed glass and massive clad doors. Perfect for interior and exterior doors, in both residential and commercial environments.
