PortaPivot is designed by the creative minds behind ANYWAYdoors

Anyway Doors Flagship Store and production

Company profile

Portapivot is a Belgian brand, created and engineered by the designers of ANYWAY doors . Anyway was founded in 1995 and specializes in high-end, made-to-measure interior doors and wardrobe products.

Various international design awards have put Anyway's products in the spotlight all over the world. A marketing dream come true, but for a manufacturer of custom-made and fully finished products, this created quite the challenge in regards to fulfilling these requests.

Portapivot is designed as our answer to these international requests and makes our popular Room Divider products and its patented hinge system accessible to every interior professional.

Portapivot offers its products as custom-made, self-assembly kits, designed for interior professionals, door installers and high-end carpenters with international shipping by Fedex.

Modern production philosophy

We believe in a production philosophy where we combine the strength of our technology, engineering and design capabilities, with local craftsmanship from all over the world.

With this business model, we offer high-tech, made-to-measure hardware systems that empower our design capabilities, but meanwhile still offer plenty of support to local suppliers.  

We encourage our clients to source finishing materials such as glass, Hi-Macs, Corian, plexiglass, HPL, MDF, ceramic plates... at local partners and therefore support the local economy!

Any professional who is capable of assembling kitchens, closets or doors can order, assemble and install our products. We designed Portapivot with special attention to assembly and installation. All the necessary hardware is included in our made-to-measure kits.

Rudi Dries

CEO & product designer

Email: rudi@portapivot.com

Bio:

Rudi Dries (1960) is product designer/engineer as well as founder and CEO of both ANYWAYdoors and Portapivot.

As his motto ‘design follows function' shows, he is more product engineer than designer. The proof: a number of international patents but not one model registration in his name.

The concepts he develops are first functionally inspired and secondly aesthetically designed. Rudi Dries finds inspiration in the evolution of architecture, materials, installation & maintenance analysis, but always with the initial philosophy of his company in mind, of creating a highly modular door concept with a contemporary design, look and feel.

It has been his mission to hide all technical parts from view, creating designs that look deceptively simple. The result is a minimalist product, revealing only smooth elements and surfaces, even when the doors are open.

Koen Dries

Sales & marketing

Email: koen@portapivot.com

Bio:

Koen Dries (1982) joined Anyway Doors in 2004 and initially started his carreer in sales.

Around 2008 he started working on online presence and the associated marketing. Social media channels such as Facebook, Pinterest & Instagram created global awareness for our products.

Both father and son saw the huge potential of the popular 'pivoting room divider' products & accompanied innovative hinge system they designed, that expands far beyond the Benelux area they target with their B2C company ANYWAYdoors. They received daily requests for the pivot doors from all over the world, which triggered the creation of Portapivot.

Fast forward to 2017 and Portapivot's E-shop is now up and running. The made-to-measure production facility for the aluminium profiles and kit composition is also a Belgian owned family enterprise.

Made to measure self-assembly kits

Portapivot offers all it's made-to-measure products in self-assembly kits.

Portapivot custom-builds the aluminium profiles to your coordinated measurements and ships them with the appropriate hardware accessories, such as pivot hinges, sliding door rails, door grips and all the necessary assembly and installation accessories.

You can assemble & customize our systems as desired by your client, with finishing materials such as glass, HPL, veneer, solid surface materials, MDF, wood, ceramics,… all purchased at your preferred local supplier.

After your order is processed, we send out the appropriate specifications for the finishing materials such as advised materials & exact dimensions, so you can purchase these at your local partner.

We sell our products to a wide range of professional users: door installers, carpenters, interior or exterior construction related businesses, kitchen installers, window installers, manufacturers, hardware resellers,…
