See the new 2022 System M FA details here.

Four ADA-compliant models are tuned for your specific door. Please call us to help you determine which model is right for your door specs and situation. This is a perfect solution for designers and builders needing a pivot door for their Universal Design projects


It's simple. This specification-grade pivot hinge plus adjustable closer is mortised in the door. This innovation will save you time and money. Anyone who has tried to install an in-floor closer like a Dorma or Rixson will know immediately what we are saying.

System M represents a new way forward for pivot doors, especially the big ones.

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.

The Dutch manufacturer FritsJurgens made the obvious move.

They've engineered a sophisticated closer and put it in the door! 

Nothing in the ceiling. Nothing in the floor.

Introducing System M. 

Many problems solved. So many headaches averted.


What's it do? 

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. 



Features :

  • Dual-acting with hold positions at 0˚, ±90˚
  • Self-closing from ±125˚ and from ±89˚
  • Adjustable closing speed
  • Hydraulic backcheck
  • Minimum door thickness : 1-9/16" (40mm)

Special ADA-compliant models are now available.

Please call us for help in specifying the correct one for your situation.

      • For new and existing situations. Great for retrofits.
      • System M makes for quick installations because you can wait until all the surfaces are done before bringing in the doors.
