Product Focus: System M

INTRODUCING :

HIDDEN PERFECTION

After years of development and testing, FritsJurgens® has launched its most sophisticated pivot hinge yet. 

System M is a patented heavy duty double-acting pivot hinge with an adjustable closer for doors up to 1,100lbs. and, like all FritsJurgens® pivot systems, System M  is entirely mortised in the door leaf. Nothing in the ceiling. Nothing in the floor.

SYSTEM M COMPONENTS

CAPACITY + CONTROL

 

System M consists of a top and bottom pivot and their mounting plates. That's it. The System utilizes the same Top Pivot and small Ceiling Plate as the other FritsJurgens pivot hinge Systems. The Bottom Pivot/Closer, only just shy of 4-inches high, is set into the patented Floor Plate which provides easy adjustment of the 0° position of the door to ensure you get the installation absolutely perfect.

When the door is closed the System is virtually invisible. No nasty floor closer plate to try and hide, no getting the jackhammer out to install a closer cement box. The business ends of the System M are entirely mortised in the door.

 

SYSTEM M SPECIFICATION

FIVE DIFFERENT MODELS FOR THE PERFECT MOVEMENT

To ensure their pivot hinge provides the appropriate door movement for your door, FritsJurgens has made it available in five models with different closer strengths. Each is tuned to handle specific door sizes and weights depending on the position of the pivot, and the width and weight of the door.

If you require a system for a pivot door that does not appear on the chart below, do not hesitate to contact us. We will work with FritsJurgens® to determine which model is suitable. 

 

 

EXAMPLE : 

Select the correct model to specify for the following door : 

60”W x 120”H x 2.25”D door weighing 450lbs. where the center of the pivot is at 6” from the edge. 

Step 1 : Determine distance to pivot point A = 60”- 6” = 54”

Step 2 : Check total door width B = 60”

Step 3 : Cross reference the weight C = 450 lbs. 

RESULT : For this door you would specify model M32E.
