PIVOTA® DXS 61 3-D "Close"

Concealed hinge with an INTEGRATED CLOSER!!!

The millwork community has wanted one for years. IT IS NOW HERE!!!

BaSys hinges have become the go-to hinge for high-performance doors in Europe. Now they are available here in the US. Concealed hinges have long been used for "hidden" doors. Now, their 3-D adjustability has made installation of premium flush doors so efficient they are the favorite of installers. And their modern looks, finishes and wide range of capacities has architects using them throughout their projects. 

BaSys PIVOTA hinges are one of the best German designed 3-D concealed hinges available on the market. The BaSys engineers have created a concealed hinge with perfectly smooth operation, no visible screws, and an entire range of hinges to meet nearly most design applications.

Now that the BaSys hinge is stocked in the US market, it is becoming the gold standard for door manufacturers, millworkers, and architects.

PIVOTA® DX stands for reliability and durability – provided by its extremely stable joint design. Because of the sophisticated bearings and the exceptional kinematical guidance, our DX hinges have set standards in performance function tests. The same applies to the adjustment of the door leaf position which is being conducted independently of the joint’s kinematic.

Can I get a great load capacity by adding hinges?

Yes and no. This question is application specific so best to call and discuss your application. We have access to BaSys engineers who can help us determine the best concealed hinge solution for your application.

Where do I place the hinges on the door?

Top and bottom hinges should be located 10" (on center) from the top and bottom edge of the door. Unlike with Soss hinges, a third BaSys® hinge will not add a proportional amount of capacity to the system. With taller doors, installers often use a third hinge in the center.

Does the leading edge of the door need to be beveled?

This table shows the width, at given thicknesses, below which the latch side of a door fitted with a BaSys PIVOTA® hinge requires an edge bevel. Please call us for further guidance. Download Door Bevel Reference Document

Soss vs. BaSys PIVOTA vs. TECTUS Concealed Hinges

Soss hinges are relatively inexpensive and may appear to be the better option if the cost of the individual hinge is the only measure. However, there are hidden costs which should be taken into consideration. The obvious technological difference is the ability to adjust the BaSys PIVOTA® and TECTUS hinge in 3 Dimensions. This allows for a much faster and more precise installation of the door. Now, if a door fitted with a BaSys PIVOTA® or TECTUS needs to be tweaked, perhaps because the new building has settled, the installer need only get out his hex key and, with a few turns, bring the door back to flush. Doors fitted with Soss sometimes cause frequent call-backs requiring the door to be taken off and reworked or, worse, remade.

Another consideration is the number of Soss hinges that need to be installed to achieve the higher capacities of the BaSys PIVOTA® or TECTUS® system. Check out the BaSys PIVOTA® vs. TECTUS CONCEALED HINGES cross reference guide for some examples.
For BaSys PIVOTA® and Simonswerk TECTUS® it is Germany.
Country of origin for Soss is Singapore.
Customers who have used both have universally given the same feedback: significant savings are possible by using BaSys PIVOTA® or TECTUS® because the quicker and more precise installation of doors fitted with BaSys PIVOTA® or TECTUS® hinges and the nearly complete lack of call backs. We even have a few millworkers who strongly advocate using BaSys PIVOTA® or TECTUS® throughout a project, because they end up saving money for the owner.

Aesthetics is a matter of personal opinion, but we feel it's hard to argue against the more refined look and quality or the BaSys PIVOTA® "Design" options with no visible screws and integrated closers as well as the refinded finishes available from Simonswerk's TECTUS®. Call us and we can help select the best concealed hinge based on price, aesthetics, performance, project size and availability.
