What is a Hydraulic Pivot Patch Closer?
For those who are new to frameless glass systems, the hydraulic pivot patch closer is a beautifully designed pivot hinge-like system for frameless glass doors. The installation process is simple, removing the need to carve out concrete or tile flooring to complete the installation. The hydraulic pivot patch is attached to the frameless glass panel with ease, requiring only a cut out in the glass for proper fitting. The baseplate is secured on to the flooring and ceiling, then slipped into the main patch closer to hold the glass panel in place. The installation process is simple, clean and less time consuming. And of course, the finished look is modern, sleek and easy to maintain!
For expert glass installers, the hydraulic pivot patch closer is the latest and most innovative solution for frameless glass doors. No longer will you need to pre-set or cut out concrete to insert the clumsy floor boxes. You’ll be glad to know the new process is much less time consuming and messy! The hydraulic system allows the door to close automatically at a pre-set speed, whilst also holding open at a 90 degree angle option is desired. Long gone are also the bulky cover plates and overhead closers.
The glass panel is definitely the star of the show with this new range of hydraulic pivot path closers!
What is the difference between a hydraulic pivot patch closer and a butt hinge?
Pivot hinges are an alternative to traditional butt hinges. Where butt hinges must be attached to the side of a door, pivot hinges are attached to the top and bottom of a door, allowing the door to swing in either direction.
What types of hydraulic pivot patch closers are there?
Forge Hardware offers 2 types of pivot patch closer hinges: the Hydraulic patch closer hold open and the Hydraulic patch closer non-hold open design. The first uses an innovative design which allows the door to hold itself in place at a 90 degree angle once opened. When the door is pushed to its original position, it is able to gently slide back into place with no noise. The second is able to swing freely once opened and does not hold a 90 degree angle and always automatically goes back to its closing position, perfect for security doors and gates.
