INTRODUCING :

 
FritsJurgens-SystemM.png
 

ADA-Compliant Models are now available!

A year ago, FritsJurgens® launched its most sophisticated pivot hinge system yet. System M very quickly got the attention of everyone who had ever dealt with one of the most onerous door hardware challenges : the specification and installation of pivot doors with in-floor closers.

The basics: System M is a patented specification-grade double-acting pivot hinge with an adjustable closer for BIG doors. Like all FritsJurgens® pivot systems, System M is mortised entirely in the door leaf. Nothing in the ceiling. Nothing in the floor.

A year later, the engineers at FritsJurgens® have improved on their achievement with the development of the Friendly Access suite of ADA-Compliant System M models. They can finally answer the often-asked question from North American specifiers and contractors:

“Does this meet ADA standards?”

Yes, it does!

The new ADA-Compliant FA models (Friendly Access) offer solutions for doors up to 660lbs. but without the hassle of having to get into the slab or hide a coverplate. These models have all the features and capacity of the regular System M models but have been tuned to meet all the requirements of the ADA for door closing speed and opening force.

HIDDEN PERFECTION


SYSTEM M COMPONENTS

CAPACITY + CONTROL

FritsJurgens_Components.png

System M consists of a top and bottom pivot and their mounting plates. That's it. The System utilizes the same Top Pivot and small Ceiling Plate as the other FritsJurgens pivot hinge Systems. The Bottom Pivot/Closer, only just shy of 4-inches high, is set into the patented Floor Plate which provides easy adjustment of the 0° position of the door to ensure you get the installation absolutely perfect. The minimum distance to the pivot center from the edge of the door is 3-9/16" (91mm).

When the door is closed the System is virtually invisible. No nasty floor closer coverplate to try and hide, no getting the jackhammer out to install a closer cement box; System M is mortised entirely in the door.

SYSTEM M STANDARD SPECIFICATION

FIVE DIFFERENT MODELS FOR THE PERFECT MOVEMENT

To ensure their pivot hinge provides the appropriate movement for your door, FritsJurgens® has made it available in five models, each tuned to specific combinations of door weight and geometry, and the position of the pivot.

If you require a system for a pivot door that does not appear on the chart below, do not hesitate to contact us. We will work with FritsJurgens® to determine which model is suitable, and, if needed, they will model your door in their lab to test your specific situation.

EXAMPLE ABOVE : 

Select the correct model to specify for the following door :

60”W x 120”H x 2.25”D door weighing 450lbs. where the center of the pivot is at 6” from the edge.

Step 1 : Determine distance to pivot point A = 60”- 6” = 54”

Step 2 : Check total door width B = 60”

Step 3 : Cross reference the weight C = 450 lbs.

RESULT : For this door you would specify model M32E.

SYSTEM M ADA MODEL SPECIFICATION

There are 4 ADA (Friendly Access) models that apply to various door weight and pivot point location specifications. Download the FRIENDLY ACCESS Brochure for information on specifying the correct model.

If you require a system for a pivot door that does not appear there, do not hesitate to contact us. FritsJurgens® has an on-site testing facility which enables us to determine which systems are suitable for your specific situation.
