Increasing door weights and larger door panels are demanding hinge systems with a high load-bearing capacity. Basys will be demonstrating solutions in the field of concealed hinges and a barrel hinge that is suitable for 350 kg doors at the Fensterbau Frontale 2018 trade fair.
A new member of the "Pivota DX" product range has already made its debut, at BAU 2017. Developed for heavy-duty applications, the "Pivota DXS 180 3-D Steel" hinge is made of solid steel and stainless-steel joints, and carries a standard load of 300 kilograms per pair. Its special kinematics permits claddings in a thickness of up to 8 mm.
The new model has the same mortising dimensions as the "Pivota DX 120" (160 kg load-bearing capacity per pair) and "Pivota DX 180" (200 kg load-bearing capacity per pair) models which makes it easier to change doors. The manufacturer uses hybrid technology to provide mortising compatibility within the model groups: load-bearing capacity is determined by material composition alone – the mortising dimensions remain unchanged.
The "Pivota DXS 300 3-D" is also classified as a load carrier within the product range: it is capable of supporting 350 kilograms per pair and is made entirely of steel. This gives the hinge an RC4 break-in resistance class. With an increasing share of steel, the hinges are also recommended for smoke and fire protection.
At the heart of the "Pivota DX" hinge series is the design principle that was developed and patented by Basys. It reliably supports door-leaf weights and gives permanently maintenance-free and smooth mechanical action even to extremely heavy and frequently used doors.
