PIVOTA® DXS 61 3-D "Close"

Concealed hinge with an INTEGRATED CLOSER!!!

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

NEW! Check out a great blog post all about the BaSys Close 3D Hinge

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. 

Why is this such a big deal? Because you can maintain 3D adjustability! Don't waste time pairing other closer solutions when using concealed hinges BECAUSE YOU LOSE YOUR ABILITY TO ADJUST IN 3D!!!

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

What is the difference between BaSys PIVOTA® and TECTUS®?

Here’s our two (or 10) cents in a nutshell:

1. Both are 3D-adjustable, which is one of the most significant attributes for concealed hinges.

2. Material: Both are made from aluminum alloys and steel, with some models made from solid steel. BaSys PIVOTA® hinges include increasingly more steel the higher the weight capacity.

3. Construction: BaSys PIVOTA® hinges feature a unique piston that allows for kinematic guidance and butter-smooth operation. BaSys PIVOTA® hinges have four knuckles made of steel. TECTUS® hinges have 3 knuckles made of Zamak.

4. Weight Capacity: BaSys PIVOTA®’s highest weight capacity hinge is the DXS 300 3D, allowing up to 770 lbs. TECTUS®’s highest weight capacity hinge is the TE 645 3D, allowing up to 660 lbs.

5. UL Rating: TECTUS® manufactures three 3-hour rated concealed hinges: the mighty TE 527 3D, TE 526 3D, & TE 626 3D A8. We offer three BaSys hinge models that are 60 minute UL listed: the DXS 300 3D Steel, DXS 101 3D Steel, and the DXE 100 3D Enox. Many of Tectus hinge models are 20 minute UL listed, while many BaSys models are 30 or 60 minute UL listed.

6. Versatility: Both systems include models made for doors with cladding up to 8mm, doors with recessed frames, and doors that require power transfer.

7. Closing Function: BaSys PIVOTA®’s “Close” hinges include an integrated automatic closer within the hinge itself and is the only one of its kind on the market.

8. Cover Plates: BaSys PIVOTA®’s “Design” hinges have cover plates with concealed screws. TECTUS® offers square cover plates that can be purchased separately; however, both TECTUS® cover plate options bear visible screws.

9. Finishes: TECTUS® has more (and nicer) standard finish options, including plated, powder-coated, and galvanized finishes. We offer less BaSys PIVOTA® standard finish options, but they can provide a wet finish in any RAL code with minimal setup fee and low minimum quantities.

10. Pricing: It depends. In general, BaSys PIVOTA® tends to be slightly less expensive than TECTUS®, but not always.
