Pivot hinges allow a door to rotate on a spindle, or pivot, instead of hanging from hinges affixed to the side of the door frame. They allow the pivot door to open in either direction and allow you to run it all the way from the floor to the ceiling.
Pivot hinges are often used in commercial high traffic areas because the pivot doors can be pushed open easily. They also work well for domestic use. Because the bottom bracket is anchored to the floor, pivot hinges allow for larger, heavier doors to be installed, when you want to make a statement or create a grand entrance.
Pivot hinges are suitable for renovations and new builds and are ideal for buildings with under-floor heating.
Two Tease premium range of pivot hinges.
The Two Tease range of architectural hardware includes three sizes of pivot hinges, depending on the size and weight of your door. For doors weighing 45kg or less, the Pivotica pivot hinge offers a lightweight and cost-effective option with a high-quality and durable European mechanism. For doors weighing up to 100kg we recommend the Pivotica Pro 100 and for doors weighing up to 150kg we offer the Pivotica Pro 150. Both the Pivotica 100 and Pivotica 150 are available in ‘in-floor‘ options, with a floor plate that is raised 5mm off the floor instead of 13mm with the standard options, reducing the gap between the floor and the door. Black cover plates are available for both the Pivotica Pro 100 and the Pivotica Pro 150.

Magnotica magnetic door closing
The Pivotica pivot hinge range is complemented by Magnotica, a magnetic and contactless door closer which holds interior doors shut without the need for a door handle or latch. Because there are no moving parts, the Magnotica allows the door to be opened and closed completely noiselessly. The Magnotica can be installed on any normal wooden door frame and allows fast, easy opening without a need for a door handle. This makes this magnetic closure particularly suitable for walk-in rooms such as closets, ensuites, pantries and storerooms.
The Magnotica is ideal to be used in conjunction with Pivotica concealed pivot door hinges. It can either be installed vertically, or horizontally at the top of the door.
