Pivot or Swing? We can help. But please, no butts!

We are particularly informed, and by that we mean “expert status”, on concealed swing and pivot hinges. Our favorite players include Tectus and BaSys heavy duty concealed swing hinges, and FritsJurgens heavy duty pivot hinges. Check em out:

BaSys PIVOTA Series

A complete line of 3-D adjustable concealed hinges brand new to the US market, but already a tried and true player in Europe. Hinges for doors up to 770lbs, clad doors with wide throw requirements or doors in recessed frames, doors with 60-minute UL listing requirements, and even doors needing closers are all available in this collection. Bonus: all come with magnetically-fixed concealed screw cover plates!
