Stealth Pivot receives a prestigious iF design award 2017

PORTAPIVOT receives a prestigious iF DESIGN AWARD for its pivoting room divider

Stealth pivot is a compact and innovative pivoting hinge, that can be fitted inside virtually any door leaf. The pivot hinge features a high-tech com

fort closure that works in all swing directions even up to 360°. When fitted, the hinge remains invisible, hence the name "Stealth Pivot".

The jury from the iF Awards, held in Germany noticed it’s excellence and awarded Portapivot a 2017 Design Award for its “6530” glass and aluminium pivot door system equipped with Stealth Pivot XL pivoting hinges.

Portapivot 6530 system

This particular pivoting door is made with a minimal aluminium frame (65 mm x 30 mm), available in 3 anodized colours: silver, black and bronze. The frame can be equipped with 6 or 8 mm thick tempered safety glass of your choice.

The frame is equipped with a "Stealth Pivot" pivoting hinge, specifically designed to be mounted on top of a finished floor and underneath a solid or reinforced ceiling surface, without the need for any built-in fixtures.

Compact pivot hinge design without built-in parts

The pivot hinge is mounted straight on top of the finished floor and solid or reinforced ceiling surface, without the need for any built-in fixtures. The minimal anchoring (2 bolts +-4.5cm deep) allows for easy installation on any type of surface.

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.

Offset or central axis pivoting doors

Stealth Pivot "XL" is designed for large pivot doors up to 150kg. The axis can be positioned at either 1/3 or in the centre, with a configurable swing operation of 90°, 180° or 360° like a carrousel.

The closing force is fully adaptable with 2 sets of gas springs, rated at a force of 400N and 500N. The gas springs can easily be exchanged to finetune the closing force of the hinge as necessary.
