Slim Framed Pivot Door
The minimal aluminium framing of the minimal windows system is available as a slim, architectural pivoting door. The thin aluminium framing can be used to create very large pivoting doors, perfect to accompany other minimal windows systems on your project.
With a flush base track when the pivot doors are open, and a minimal surrounding frame you can expertly recreate the appearance of the minimal windows sliding glass doors in a pivoting design.
The minimal windows pivot door contains a hold open and self-closing mechanism within the head framing of the pivot door for ease of handling, especially when the window is created at large sizes.
An ergonomic two point thrust lever locking mechanism is integrated into the opening edge of the pivot window to mirror the appearance of the minimal windows sliding doors. The integrated lock has been tested for security and is designed to ensure that it does not impede onto the glass face of the large pivoting window.
All drainage is integrated into the base of the minimal windows pivot door to allow a flush threshold when open. A stainless steel blade drain and sub base neoprene drainage block force create a suitable base detail for water resistance and direct water run off away.
For increased levels of weather protection and security, a high quality magnetic sealing strip sit under the door. When closed the seal rises up to slot into the gap at the base of the door leaf.
The minimal windows is available with an integrated glazing bar design, to create a timeless glazing aesthetic . Aluminium glazing bars are applied to the surface of the glass with a dummy spacer bar behind, for an authentic glazing bar design.
Use these large pivoting systems in conjunction with our popular minimal windows for a cohesive design both inside and outside to all glazing elements.
Large Pivot Doors
These large format pivoting windows can reach heights of 3m for an impressive opening window design. Their widths can be up to 1.8m per door and a multiple door configurations are also possible.
Using the same framing profiles as the minimal windows sliding glass doors creates an extremely thin framed pivot door. The opening edge has a door frame of 50mm which includes the integrated thrust lever locking handle. Majority of the fixed frame can be hidden by building finishes if required.
A stainless steel pivot in the head and base of each door creates the smooth pivoting action. This pivot point has to be a minimum of 100mm from the closing edge but can be moved to the centre of the door as required. Hold open and self-closing mechanisms are within the head of the pivot window.
The handle for this door protrudes from the vertical part of the frame. This handle is stainless steel and can come with or without a key lock and operates the steel locking mechanism. If a key lock is not required a manual thrust level lock can be used.
