The silent kitchen pantry door and the evil ball catch latch.

Posted on Mar 11, 2019

We've all been there.  The baby is finally asleep. You are exhausted but famished.

And you crave the chips that are behind the kitchen pantry door held shut by a loud and boisterous closet door ball catch latch.  Pulling the door open may not wake the baby and the household, but shutting it will set off enough squeaks and harrowing sounds to also wake the dog.  You are hungry and now defeated.

Why not end this pain for millions.  Use the silent Precision Magnetic Catch for your next project.  Finally, a silent way to open, close, and secure the kitchen pantry door.  It's time to stay silent.

LET THE REVOLUTION BEGIN. 

 

Everyone sees doors getting bigger and bigger on their projects. Now you have a heavy-duty solution for virtually any interior or exterior door you can dream up. 

After years of development and testing, we are very proud to introduce SYSTEM M, a dual-acting pivot hinge with adjustable closer for large doors up to 1100 lbs.

HIDDEN PERFECTION

SYSTEM M's top and bottom pivots are mortised in the door leaf allowing for quick and precise installation after all the finish surfaces are completed. Yes, that means you don't have a floor closer box detail to coordinate with all the subs. You don't have an ugly closer cover to hide. All you have is a small plate sitting on the floor into which you set the door. 


Behind its smooth and sleek exterior, 
SYSTEM M is loaded with features : 
 

  • Dual-Acting Pivot Hinge
  • NEW Load Capacity : 1100 lbs.
  • Hold Positions at 0º, 90º and -90º
  • Self-closing from ±89º
  • NEW Self-closing from ±125º
  • Fully-adjustable Closing Speed.
  • NEW Adjustable Hydraulic Backcheck.
  • NEW Easily Adjustable 0° Position for Precise Installation.
  • Adjustable Gap Spacing Between Door and Jamb
  • NEW Minimum Door Thickness : 1-1/2" (40mm)
  • Tested Beyond 1 million Cycles.
  • NEW Five Models Tuned to the Size and Weight of Your Door. 
  • State-of-the-Art Maintenance-free Bearings. 
  • Grommeted Top Pivot Available for Permanent Power Transfer
  • Corrosion-resistant Construction for Exterior and Interior Doors.
  • Perfect for Extra-Large Wood or Metal Doors

SYSTEM M's patented hinge technology delivers smooth, controlled movement for very large, very heavy doors, for the lifetime of the building.  
All this Capacity + Control is now available from FritsJurgens®
through Index-d or purchase directly online at BetterBuildingHardware.com

 
As you begin to specify SYSTEM M in your projects, we will be very interested to hear about your experience. SYSTEM M itself evolved from FritsJurgens® learning from the comments of specifiers like you. Let us know what you need to integrate this state-of-the-art hinge into your projects.

Time to dream big.
