Breaking News FritsJurgens Pivot Door Hardware

It’s no wonder the clients who use patented Sing pivot door core to build their high end doors are using the latest in leading edge pivot door hardware. While your pivot doors for the elite may feature any type or style of pivot door hardware made by any of the most popular pivot door hinge manufacturers, one new type of pivot door hinge is getting installed in more large pivot doors with Sing Core inside.

Breaking News

It has come to our attention that the new System M hardware from FritsJurgens in Holland is what all the latest buzz is all about.

What’s the big deal?

The big deal around Sing Core is always about big pivot doors. Not only big pivot doors but the biggest pivot doors because you could be talking about thousands of pounds of a large pivot door, which could be reduced to ten percent of the weight by having Sing Core inside.

Architects, our custom door manufacturers and millwork clients rely on the lightweight fail-safe aspects of pivot doors made with Sing Core to keep your project, not only at the elitist level of excellence, but within a reasonable budget. While those huge pivot doors can be very expensive to build and handle, the sheer weight of the door dictates the hardware necessary to accommodate such a door.

Installation of the hardware to operate an enormous pivot door can require extensive engineering efforts as well as becoming a burden on the installation, especially if it is being retrofit into an existing structure (not so bad if prepared for in a new structure being built).

Then comes along Holland’s FritsJurgens with the perfect match of sleek System M hardware that is the easiest pivot door hardware to install, especially in a retrofit application, carrying a weight of up to an 1,100 pound pivot door. That could be a 37 foot tall pivot door with Sing Core inside!

Concealed Pivot Door Hardware

The pivot closer is concealed within the door, not the floor! Making this the easiest to install pivot door hardware, requiring very little modification at the job site to install. Some of our custom pivot door builders are able to transport a completed pivot door system fully installed and pre-hung from their factory or millwork to the job site for the easiest installation of pivot doors ever, thanks to FritsJurgens’ System M nearly concealed hardware.

If you’re using a Sing pivot door blank for your pivot door substrate and you plan on using FritsJurgens’ System M pivot door hardware, all you have to do is let our design staff know when you’re placing your order. Sing Core can pre-install the required blocking necessary to accommodate the FritsJurgens System M pivot door hardware.

If you’re upgrading an existing non-Sing pivot door to a pivot door with Sing Core inside, you will be glad to know that FritsJurgens’ new System M closer works with existing FritsJurgens top plate and top pivot.

At present, this is a leading-edge well-kept secret among the most elite high end custom door manufacturers, but we thought you would like advance notice before this product becomes more widespread in use across the United States.

According to John Derosa, “The M is a wonderfully engineered, highly advanced pivot closer that is changing the technology of pivot doors. The fully adjustable M is the closer solution for large, heavy pivot doors without having to install any hardware into the floor or the ceiling.”

Here are some of what you can expect from your FritsJurgens System M Closer:

  • Everything in the door, nothing in the floor or ceiling
  • Super thin profile for min thickness doors 1 3/4″ (or thinner?)
  • 5 different models to choose from based on door width, weight, location of pivot (M32A, M32B, M32C, M32D, M32E)
  • Holds 661 lb doors and up to 1,100 lb doors under special circumstances
  • Adjustable speed, backset, floor plate and more adjustments

Pivot Doors Straight Talk

Years in the making, finally Sing Core has come out with the ultimate solution for Eco-friendly pivot doors made of any material and any size weighing a fraction of other door cores. This revolutionary patented solution has made Sing Core the number one resource for large pivot doors that are lightweight, high strength and can be guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years, as well as full structure warranty. No other large pivot door solution can match the power of Sing Core. Here’s the latest straight talk about pivot doors:

Pivot Doors Straight Talk

The only 50 year warp-free guarantee and full structure warranty

As the demand for large pivot doors is on the increase, the bigger they are, the more impressive they are, also, the more apt they are to fail due to door warp. Let’s face it, a door that is not straight and true is of little use as a door at all.

It is imperative for large pivot doors to remain straight and true, and the design team at Sing Core has created a full battery of patented and patent pending solutions to keep any large pivot door, made of any material perfectly straight, far exceeding AWI standards for flatness. The true flat experts at Sing Core have the knowledge and ability to create large pivot doors will not warp, eliminating the biggest complaint about pivot doors.

So, if you want a straight pivot door, the only way to get one made and guaranteed to remain warp-free for 50 years is to do what most contemporary architects, designers and engineers do, and that’s to specify that you want your doors to have, “Sing Core inside.”

Pivot Door Problems

Large pivot doors with Sing Core inside also solve other problems facing architects and designers, including, but not limited to…

Heavy Pivot Doors

Large pivot doors are big and heavy in weight. The large size and the heavy weight is problematic for a number of reasons. First of all, you must find a custom door manufacturer or millwork to take on such a project in the first place. Anything that is large is going to be difficult to create and manipulate through the building process just to create the mammoth door in the first place. Then you have to be able to move the door from the factory to the truck, using a combination of manpower and heavy equipment. Then transport the large pivot door from the factory to the job site. Once at the site, more manpower and heavy equipment is required to unload and move the door to where it will be installed. Installers now have to deal with the door, moving and fine tuning it to fit the space and attach the appropriate heavy duty pivot door hardware which can cost many times the price of the pivot door.

Heavy Duty Pivot Door Hardware

Expensive heavy duty pivot door hardware is required as the hardware is determined by the weight of the door. Even though this hardware is designed to handle a heavy weight pivot door, the straight talk is, if the door is used regularly, the hardware will start to breakdown and fail over time.

Large Pivot Door Maintenance

Which brings us to maintenance on the large pivot doors; yes, your large pivot door is impressive and leaves a great first impression but the more consistent lasting impression is left upon the pivot door’s owner who must bear the cost of constant repair and maintenance over the life of the otherwise magnificent large pivot door. As huge pivot doors are used, they cause stress and strain, not only on the hardware, but also the structure, creating the need for maintenance and repair on the pivot door for warp, the hardware as it deteriorates, and the structure for stress and strain.

Large Pivot Door Insulation

In most large pivot doors, little thought is given to the insulation value of the door. While large pivot doors are commonly thicker than their hinged cousins, the large pivot doors may not provide for energy efficient handling of thermal separation or elimination of sound penetration.

Large Pivot Door Danger

If you have a large pivot door, operating it may be problematic, especially when delicate little fingers are around when the pivot door is opened and closed. Large pivot doors are so heavy that there is the danger of injury to anyone, not just children, when the doors are in motion.

Pivot Door Solutions

Thanks you Sing Core, you can save money and have a better large pivot door experience over time, as the Sing solution is applied. Here are some of the solutions you can expect by specifying that your pivot door has, “Sing Core inside.”

Lightweight Pivot Doors

If your pivot door is built with Sing Core inside, it can weigh a fraction of the weight of any other solid core pivot door. The energy savings in just the creation and transport of your Sing pivot door help to make it more ecologically responsible, using less energy to create, ship and handle. But there’s more…

Lightweight Pivot Door Hardware

Because the type of pivot door hardware is based on the pivot door’s weight, a lighter weight door requires a pivot hinge which is matched. Real cost savings can be realized by being able to use the less expensive pivot door hardware, bring the cost of the hardware way down.

High Strength Pivot Doors

Your Sing pivot door is very strong as it was university-tested and rated at 660 PSI in strength, making it stronger than steel pound for pound. This superior strength is due to the patented insulated reinforced vertical grain torsion box core. Without Sing Core inside , you are limited to the ability of the material used to maintain the pivot door integrity over time.

Sing Pivot Door Maintenance

When your pivot doors have sing Core inside they are also nearly free of regular maintenance. If you have a professional Sing pivot door that does not warp, then you possess a large pivot door which can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist, cup, or otherwise fail for 50 years. Plus, if the door is damaged for any reason, it can be quickly and easily repaired on site (often without have to dismantle or remove the door) without compromising the pivot door’s strength or integrity. In addition, the lightweight of your Sing pivot door, means much less stress and strain on the hardware.

Sing Pivot Door Installation

Being so lightweight reduces costs and time by being so lightweight. Due to the bulky size several people will need to manipulate the door, but no heavy equipment will be needed because the crew can easily maneuver the large pivot door without much trouble. In fact, we commonly hear back from the installers about how they couldn’t believe how light and easy to work with large pivot doors with Sing Core inside are.

Insulated Pivot Door

Sing Core pre-packs your large pivot door with insulation wall to wall inside the torsion box structure imbuing your large pivot with increased ability for climate control and also sound deadening capabilities that are hard to find in other large pivot doors. If you’re thinking about separation between room, or particularly a pivot front door, the added insulation factor is of huge benefit and included in every Sing pivot door blank at no extra charge. Insulation upgrades are available per your specification.

Sing Pivot Door Safety and Security

Due to the increased insulation and high strength of your pivot door that has Sing Core inside, you can enjoy a greater sense of safety and security. The high strength will prevent breaching the door from unwanted guests. These are often used as impact doors. If you kick other lightweight pivot doors, they could easily fail and offer egress to an otherwise secure environment, but if you kick a Sing pivot door you will not break the door. You are more likely to break your leg and the sound deadening characteristics inhibits eavesdropping.

In the event a child, or anyone, gets their hand or fingers caught in a Sing large pivot door in motion, the likelihood of surviving such an event is much more likely as less damage will occur thanks to the Sing solution being so much lighter in weight than other large pivot doors.

Shouldn’t your pivot doors have Sing Core inside?
