Modern office space with Dark grey glass partitions and Portapivot 6530 XL pivot doors.
Portapivot was contacted by Jos Heylen, the interior subcontractor selected by Crepain Binst Architure, for a glass pivoting door solution to be installed in between the Dark Grey colored office partitions they installed. After discussing the desired design and technical specifications, our popular Portapivot 6530 XL system was selected as the most appropriate solution and best match with the Dark glass with it's black anodized profiles.
Portapivot 6530 XL is designed with a minimal anodized aluminium frame, measuring 65mm x 30mm and is available in 3 colors. The frame can be fitted with any type of 6 or 8 mm thick tempered safety glass. We advise 6 to 8 mm thick glass due to an overall weight advantage and because it's hardened it's more than rigid and safe enough when fitted inside the aluminium frame which protects the sides from any impact.
The frame is equipped with our "Stealth Pivot" pivoting hinges, designed specifically to be mounted on top of a finished surface, without the need for any built-in fixtures.
Stealth Pivot XL pivoting hinge technology
Stealth pivot is an innovative hinge that makes it possible to custom-build a pivoting door up to 150 kg, that feels as light as a feather. Stealth pivot allows the door to swing in all possible directions. The hinges can be used with an offset axis position at 1/3 or with a central axis point that allows 360° functionality.
The top and bottom of the hinge are mounted straight on top of the finished floor and solid or reinforced ceiling surface, without the need for any integrated fixtures. The minimal anchoring (2 bolts +-4.5 cm deep) allows for easy installation on any type of solid surface. During development, a great deal of attention went into ease of installation, so that the resulting pivot system could be used in both new and existing homes, regardless of the floor or ceiling construction.
The opening can be measured when it's fully finished and therefor Portapivot can truly deliver made-to-measure products that fit snug and the hinge is attached to the finished surface.
Portapivot offers a wide product range of custom-build harwardware solutions that are shipped worldwide with Fedex.
