Innovative pivoting hinges

Portapivot’s pivoting doors are equipped with Stealth Pivot hinges, which feature a high-tech comfort closure, that works in all swing directions.

These innovative hinges make it possible to tailor make a pivot 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 pivot eccentrically at 80 mm or 178 mm for normal sized doors and can be positioned at 1/3 or centrally for the XL versions.

The hinge is mounted on top of the finished floor and underneath a solid or re-inforced ceiling surface, without any pre-installed 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.

Custom-made "self-assembly" kit 

Portapivot's 5045 system is sold in a self-assembly kit, that consist of the aluminium frame, a set of stealth pivot hinges and all the necessary assembly and installation accessories.

Only the finishing materials need to be sourced at a local supplier.

The 5045 frame is custom-build to your coordinated measurements. After we process the order, we can calculate the appropriate material dimensions when you correctly specified your panel measurements, using our “dimensions & joint calculation” tools.

The anodized aluminium frame can be equipped with various decorative finishes so you can personalize the door as desired by your clients.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The frame (50 x 45 mm) has a center space of 30 mm, which can be filled with any material for stability or insulation purposes, such as PUR or EXPS, etc... and has a retracted area of 7.5 mm on both sides to receive a surface finishing sheet up to max. 7 mm thick. The finishing material should be glued upon the aluminum frame on both sides. Maximum end surface material thickness = 7 mm. Thicker materials can be used because of the center core space, but they have to be machined to fit the outside edges of the frame.

Suggested finishing materials:

  • MDF
  • Wood or Veneer
  • Resopal Massiv, Trespa or other HPL products
  • Hi-Macs or Corian
  • Ceramic materials
  • Glass (4 or 6 mm tempered or layered safety glass)

After we have processed your order and confirmed payment, we send you the correct panel dimensions by pdf so you can order the finishing materials at your preffered local partner.

All our profiles are made from anodized aluminium and are finished in one of the anodizing colors above. Anodizing is an electrochemical process which gives the metal surface a decorative, durable and corrosion-resistant, anodic oxide finish.

Aluminum is ideally suited to anodizing. The anodic oxide structure originates from the aluminum substrate and is composed entirely of aluminum oxide. This aluminum oxide is not applied to the surface like paint or plating, but is fully integrated with the underlying aluminum substrate, so it cannot chip or peel. It has a highly ordered, porous structure that allows for secondary processes such as coloring and sealing.

Anodized aluminium is considered environmentally safe, producing few, if any, harmful effects on land, air, or water.

We work with a selection of high quality manufacturers to keep the final products as consistent as possible, but slight variances in color may occur. Slight color variations are normal occurrences for anodized aluminium products and cannot be considered manufacturing defects or deficiencies.

Stealth pivot is designed to be mounted on top of a finished surface, without the need for any built-in fixtures. The hinge is fitted inside the aluminium glass fittings and therefor remains invisible after installation, hence the name "stealth pivot". All the necessary screws and plugs are included in the kit, for easy and straightforward installation purposes.  The appropriate Stealth Pivot kit will be included, based upon the size of your selected Portapivot 5045 frame.
