With their discreet joinery and invisible pivoting hinges that swivel up to 360°, the high-end interior pivot doors from Portapivot, adapt perfectly to open atmosphere interior design projects.
Inside Portapivot’s elegant frame hides the “Stealth Pivot" hinge technology, an invisible pivot hinge, innovative and adaptable to a large number of situations. A unique compact hinge system that is completely versatile for great comfort in both, opening and closing large doors.
Portapivot’s 6530 XL system goes further, with a minimalist aluminium frame that can be equipped with any hardened, tempered or leavened safety glass of both 6 or 8 millimetres thick. The minimalist anodized aluminium frame (65 x 30 mm) is available in three colours: silver, black and bronze.
Like all products in the range, it is equipped with a “stealth pivot”, designed to be mounted on an already installed floor and under a solid or reinforced ceiling surface, without any pre-installed mounting systems.
The installation of the product is therefore easy, and possible in both new as existing projects, with a minimum anchoring consisting of only two bolts implanted to ± 4,5 cm depth. Beyond the product itself, the whole self-assembly & installation process was carefully studied during the development
With its XL hinge positioned in a central or offset axis setup, Portapivot 6530 XL is an ideal model for large swing doors weighing up to 150 kilograms (330 lbs). The axis can be placed at one third or in the centre of the door width, with a configurable swing operation of 90 °, 180 ° or 360 ° like a carousel.
The closing force is adaptable with two types of Suspa gas damper springs (force 400N or 500N), which can be modified to best adapt the final strength of the hinge to the installation situation.
Portapivot’s innovative technology empowers local craftsmanship
By selling made-to-measure kits directly from the factory to the professional end-user, Portapivot supports local suppliers & craftsmen but it also makes its products highly adaptable to the global market. Glass finishes or colours that might be popular in one country, aren’t necessarily popular in others. With locally sourced glass, the design possibilities are endless.
