Pivot door hinge system
Stealth Pivot is one of the most versatile and compact pivot door hinge systems available on the market. The pivot hinge features self-closing technology, self-levelling, 180° and 360° functionality and supports doors up to 150 kg.
It’s one of the few pivot hinges available that don’t require any structural built-in elements inside either floor or ceiling. The pivoting hinge is completely integrated inside the door leaf and simply attaches directly to the finished floor and solid or reinforced ceiling with 2 minimal bolts.
Due to its compact design it can be fitted inside virtually any door leaf.
Pivot hinge without built-in floor or ceiling parts
Stealth Pivot is designed with easy installation & integration in mind. The compact pivot hinge is fitted inside the door at the top and bottom.
During development, a great deal of attention went into ease of installation, to ensure that the resulting pivot system could be used in both new and existing homes, regardless the construction, without the need for any pre-installed elements.
