Glass pivot doors

Made-to-measure glass pivot doors and "pivoting room dividers"

Are you looking for a true visual masterpiece to compliment your interior? Then we at ANYWAYdoors might just have the ideal solution for a unique design statement!

Our patented Stealth Pivot hinge system is equipped with a high-tech comfort closure, which actively works in both swing directions. These innovative pivot hinges make it possible to tailor make a glass pivot door up to 5.5 m², that feels as light as a feather. Even a toddler can safely open and close the door due to ingenious product design.

The "Anyway philosophy" allows the door to open in all possible directions. The hinges can pivot eccentrically or centrally up to 360° if desired.

Depending on the selected model, the pivot door can be made from various types of glass. Due to the wide range available, we strongly recommend a visit to one of the showrooms to ensure that you are aware of all possible options when making your choice. Transparency and maintenance aspects are also issues to take into account when making your choice.

Pivot hinge system without built-in floor fixtures

The pivot hinge is mounted nearly invisible on the finished floor surface, without any integrated floor fixtures.

The minimal local floor anchoring (2 bolts +- 4 cm deep) allows for easy installation on any type of floor even when equipped with traditional underfloor heating systems. During development, a great deal of attention went into ease of installation and user-friendliness so that the resulting pivot door could be used in either new or existing homes, regardless of the floor construction.

The invisible hinges are fully integrated into the glass door frame or the rectangle glass mounted hinges.

Offset or central axis pivot point?

The pivot hinge system we use is designed to create both offset and central axis pivoting doors.

An offset pivot setup results in a 1/4 - 1/3 ratio for the pivot mount position and a 180° swing. When a central axis setup is desired, the hinge can be unlocked to feature a full 360° swing capabilities, while retaining its self-closing comfort closure. It's omnidirectional design ensures that the door can be used in all possible opening directions whithout limitations.  

These pivot doors close soundlessly by means of patented locking technology integrated in the door frame. The male (convex) part consists of a synthetic profile on the door leaf or it’s represented by the glass edge itself; the synthetic fitting in the aluminium door frame is the female (concave) part.

Every Anyway door can therefore be set to open 90°, 180° or even 360°. This locking technology guarantees perfect closure and positioning.

Crittall style pivot doors

These #crittallstyle masterpieces integrate seamlessly into any interior style.

Our distinctive #pivotingroomdividers have the ability to completely transform a space. Not just by giving it a cool and modern edge, but also by offering a modular way to open up space and letting in more light.

Pivot doors are a creative way to cleverly partition open areas to different zones, without any compromise on light or space.

Due to clever engineering, even a toddler can open doors that weigh up to 150 kg!

The old school crittall style is remastered by ANYWAYdoors with matte black anodized aluminium. This results in a lightweight pivot door system, which is fully made-to-measure and can be fitted with any kind of 6 mm thick tempered glass. Most clients choose clear glass with or without the optional aluminium grid lines on the glass. Various other popular glass types such as matte or colored glass can also be mounted in the black frame.

The grid profiles are available in 15 and 30 mm thickness and offer endless design possibilties.

Glass pivot doors with clear glass

Modern glass pivot doors made with transparent tempered glass. After a pre-treatment, tempered glass undergoes thermal treatment in an oven. This gives the glass volume greater flexural breaking strength as well as shock and thermal resistance. Tempered glass is up to five times stronger than standard glass. In the event of breakage, the glass shatters into small pieces. Tempered glass is currently used in two possible pivot setups.

The most popular system (SKD75) consist of an aluminium frame (silver or black anodised) with 6 mm tempered clear glass. The second option is a 10 mm thick glass sheet with rectangle glass mounted hinges, were the actual door frame acts as an acoustic and thermal seal.

Both systems give you a perfectly closing unit that still provides transparency between the different rooms when used in conjunction with the patented locking technology fitted inside the surrounding door frame.

Glass pivot doors with matte etched glass (frosted)

Etched glass is treated with a chemical corrosive liquid. This makes the glass matte on one side by etching in a fine structure with shallow indentations. So this frosted finish is relatively easy in terms of maintenance, and doesn’t require any further treatment. Cleaning can be done with all sorts of products except corrosive and abrasive ones. A good quality microfiber cloth and water is usually sufficient. Etched glass is also referred to as "frosted" glass. This type of glass can be used in all our pivot systems.

Special glass types

Special features such as coloured or structured glass are also available. Coloured glass (grey or dark grey) is popular in combination with the black anodized aluminium frame.

Other glass variations such as extra clear etched glas, leavened glass are also on display in our showroom.
