The completely concealed hinge system TECTUS enables unrebated doors to be completely flush and therefore integrated into rooms designed with straight lines. When closed the door will remain visible, with an invisible hinge system. TECTUS carries load capacities up to 300 kg, enables an opening angle of 180 degrees and can be used on timber, steel and aluminium frames. Three-dimensional adjustment and maintenance-free slide bearing technology are used for high-quality interior doors and functional heavy-duty doors.
All model versions have a uniform appearance, with a sideways closed hinge body for a flush mortise appearance. They differ in terms of their dimensions and the load capacities they carry – as well as in their broad spectrum of application areas, such as on timber entrance doors, recessed model versions for invisible frames, variants with intumescent kits and versions
with integrated energy transfer.
With the hinge system TECTUS Glass, SIMONSWERK has developed an aesthetic and functional solution for the holistic, flush-fitting installation of glass doors. Glass door leaf, frame, hinge and latching system lie in one plane – the best prerequisite for minimalist design in combination with maximum transparency.
An interior room concept with generous glazing and a need for transparency often goes hand in hand with the desire for a clear, unobtrusive design. The hardware system TECTUS Glass gives the glass door unprecedented light and transparency. The flush surface of the glass door leaf, frame as well as hinge and latching system creates a fascinating filigree with aesthetic technical hardware details – hardware systems that have been in the foreground until now disappear and a clear view with maximum transparency opens up. The hinge system TECTUS Glass, the contactless magnetic closure and matched handle variants result in a holistic hardware solution. Reducing the visible elements and increasing the ease of use supports contemporary interior design concepts now also for heavy-duty doors up to 80 kg.
