Pivoting door – a fascinating solution for the entrance area

Despite its mass, it turns elegantly around its own axis. When open, it attracts astonished glances. The pivoting door is a fascinating alternative to the conventional swing door.

The pivoting door has a central or lateral rotation axis and enables very large door leaves in glass and other materials. Especially in the entrance area with impressive large openings you will impress passers-by and visitors with this fascinating solution.

100 % tightness guaranteed

How the pivoting doors open is new; what remains is the unique air sealing system from air-lux. As with the horizontal sliding elements, 100 % tightness is guaranteed . This is ensured by two circumferential, inflatable ring seals that are fully integrated into the aluminium profiles. There are no weak points in the corners and no frictional resistance, as is the case with systems with conventional brush seals. Go to blog post “World’s best seal”

Up to 15 m² Door size

Big is good – this also applies to air-lux pivoting doors. Because the larger you make a pivoting door, the more impressive the effect is when it is open. We recommend a maximum area of 15 m² with a width of three metres and a height of five metres. But if you have other plans, contact us. We gladly accept your challenge.

Safety – mechanical and electronic

Also with regard to security the pivoting door is in no way inferior to the air-lux sliding window. On request we manufacture your pivoting door with alarm glass or safety glass with bullet resistance. The air-lux pivoting doors have a total of four electromechanical locking points as well as the two pivoting points, which are connected to the fixed part by ball bearings. Electronic components for monitoring the closing position and the locking of the doors make it possible to control and monitor the sliding window conveniently via the building services. By the way, also with mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Simple operation

Operation from the inside is preferably via a pushbutton, which we install in the vertical frame profile. The following external controls are available for selection:

  • Key switch
  • Finger scanner
  • Number code

As soon as you press the push button when closed, the two air seals empty and the locking bolts retract. A door closer built into the door profile ensures silent, independent closing. When the pushbutton is open, the locking bolts close the element while air is pumped into the seals and the element is perfectly sealed.
