Nothing in the ceiling. Nothing in the floor. Pivot hinge systems with everything mortised in the door. No more ugly cover plates.


The Dutch manufacturer, FritsJurgens, has engineered a patented center pivot door hinge with a sophisticated self-closing function that's entirely mortised in the door.

With capacities of up to 1100 lbs for pivot doors up to 20-feet wide and 20-feet high, the FritsJurgens® hinge system opens up a new way of thinking about any swinging panel. You can show up with your doors fitted with FritsJurgens hinges after all the finish surfaces are completed.

There's no need to deal with preparing or installing a cement box in your floor or having to hide a big unsightly cover plate. Just slip the door into the patented floor and ceiling plates, adjust until perfectly aligned, and give it a whirl.
