  • FritsJurgens pivot systems
    Category : Door Hardware
    Date : 12/09/2017

    Made in the Netherlands, and brilliantly designed, System3 is unlike traditional pivots due to it being fully embedded in the door. There is no visible pivot hardware at the top or bottom of the door. An added benefit; there is nothing to rebate into the floor or ceiling. Saving significant time and money on installation.

    With no unsightly floor spring box to cut in the floor and no head unit to rebate into the ceiling, the FritsJurgens ‘System M’ put simply, is invisible; making it clean, stylish & significantly cheaper to install.

    This key aesthetic and design element is unique to the FritsJurgens systems and is no accident. All the FritsJurgens pivot systems have been designed with this key feature in mind.

    FritsJurgens has taken the best features from its range and created a completely new and improved model. ‘System M’ is suitable for a minimum 40mm thick door and includes a variable back check and soft close function; as well as an increase in guaranteed door closing weight, now up to 300kg.

    A 1% opening around a door will allow up to 50% of the sound energy to pass through that opening.
