Pivot doors are becoming quite popular with designers. They provide a modern minimalist sensibility to projects of all stripes. However, for contractors the problems of installing these doors are many. Most of these problems come when you have to deal with a floor closer.
Maybe you've had to coordinate a bunch of subs to get the prep right for an in-floor closer like Dorma BTS80 or Rixson H40 (think goopy cement and jackhammers). Or perhaps you're an architect who's had to spend an afternoon or two figuring out how best to hide that nasty eye-sore of a closer coverplate.
Many problems solved. So many headaches averted.
The System M is a heavy-duty dual-acting pivot hinge and adjustable closer that can easily handle interior or exterior doors up to 660 lbs. (the actual capacity of the hinge is 1100lbs but the closer function's effective limit is around that 660lbs). In other words, you can use System M on very big doors and have smooth operating closer function without having to sink money and time in a floor closer.
Please call us for help in specifying the correct one for your situation.
FritsJurgens offers five models ( M32-SCA through E ) which are tuned to provide appropriate closing force for pivot doors depending on the door weight and position of the pivot. The best way to determine the right model for your door is to have a look at the System M Configuration Guide and, then if you find you still have questions, just give us a call.
