ANYWAY doors set off to design a unique 360° central pivoting hinge, that can be fitted to any pivoting door or wall, tailor-made to your needs.
The jury from the 6th annual AZ Awards held in Toronto noticed it’s excellence and awarded ANYWAY doors with a 2016 AZ Award for “Best architectural product”! On top of the jury prize, we also won the “people’s choice” award, which is the absolute icing on the cake.
The virtually invisible pivoting hinges are designed to be integrated in the door panel without the need for visible floor fixtures. The compact hinge system features a high-tech comfort closure which works in both swing directions, allowing doors to revolve up to 360°.
These innovative hinges make it possible for a door as heavy as 150kg to feel as light as a feather. The Anyway philosophy allows the door to open in all possible directions. A pivoting door equipped with a 360° central pivot point can therefore revolve endless like a carrousel.
Our room divider concept collected multiple awards from prestigious international design contests:
Reddot Award 2015 - winner - category: product design
Architizer Awards 2016 - "special mention" as an industry leader for architecture and design
AZ Awards 2016 - winner - category: best architectural product
Innovative pivot hinges without built-in floor fixtures.
The invisible pivoting hinge is mounted on the finished floor surface using a compact part, without a floor spring or integrated floor fixtures. The minimum floor anchoring (2 bolts +-4cm deep) allows for easy installation on any type of floor even equipped with under floor heating systems. During the development process, a great deal of attention was paid to installation and user-friendliness so that the pivoting door could be used in new builds as well as renovations regardless of the floor construction!
Offset or centrally positioned pivoting doors?
The pivoting hinges are designed to create both offset axis and central axis pivoting doors. In an offset axis pivoting door, we use a 1/3 ratio for the pivot point mounting. All Anyway door panels can be equipped with this technology. There is a wide choice of plain, glass and “framed glass” doors with an aluminium frame fitted with clear, matte or even coloured glass.
Smart locking technology guarantees a perfect closing unit.
All pivot doors close soundlessly by means of patented locking technology integrated in the door as well as in the minimalist frame. The male (convex) part consists of a synthetic profile on the door leaf; the synthetic fitting in the door frame is the female (concave) part. Every Anyway door can therefore be set at an opening of 90°, or 180°/360°. Even with doors swinging at 180°/360°, this guarantees perfect closure and positioning. The invisible built-in ventilation is also provided as standard with full doors and glass-framed doors.
