Made in Germany, TECTUS® is the most comprehensive concealed hinge system for premium flush doors. Easily adjustable in 3-dimensions, Simonswerk’s TECTUS® hinges bring an unparalleled level of performance, precision, and control over what has previously been a difficult detail to build and maintain. There is no other hinge system in the world that provides the solutions
easy on the eyes: For architects and designers choosing TECTUS® can make the difference between realizing your vision and having it remain just a vision.
Designers spend time detailing an “invisible” door, they may go through endless rounds of picking veneer to match the grain exactly, and simply want to keep clean and dead-even gaps around their door panels. Because TECTUS® is adjustable in 3 dimensions, large and heavy doors can be installed quickly, saving money for the millworker and installer and insuring it all looks sharp in the end. In reality, for detail-driven designers, nothing is ever really invisible. So, when you open that door, at the very least, the hinge better matches the finish of the hardware on the rest of the project.
Tectus hinges also solve some of the thorniest problems that standard offset pivots or the usual cabinet grade hinges wouldn’t touch. Say you have a series of heavy mirrored closet doors and you want to make sure your doors don’t look a shambles after the first year of use.
Invisible, but not unsightly.
Since their introduction in North America, we have seen the TECTUS® hinge go from being a welcome technologically superior substitute for other “invisible” hinges when the odd concealed door was detailed, to one that is being throughout a project’s interior and exterior doors. This acceptance has grown from a realization by contractor, millworker, and architect alike of the significant cost savings that an adjustable hinge can bring to the project.
easy to install: For millworkers and contractors who have used non-adjustable invisible hinges in the past and have wrestled with hanging these doors, especially heavier ones, TECTUS® concealed hinges will be a revelation. With a hex key, you can tweak the door leaf into perfect alignment and walk away knowing that when the building settles you won’t need to return to take the door off and take a planer to it, or worse. Installing TECTUS® hinges is straightforward. Simonswerk offers a complete suite of milling frames and templates. Applicable for wood, steel, and aluminum frames, Tectus can be used throughout a project.
easy to maintain: for owners and facilities managers who are looking for short-term value and long-term dependability, TECTUS® is the high-performance hinge that delivers both. As discussed above, the TECTUS® system, with its ease of installation and 3-dimensional adjustability, has built-in efficiencies for your project. TECTUS® hinges are engineered with maintenance-free bearings so there is no need for a scheduled greasing. Well-installed TECTUS® hinges are essentially set for the life of the building (TECTUS® hinges have been tested to 1,000,000 cycles under full load). Unlike concealed cabinet hinges, aka European hinges, Simonswerk TECTUS® hinges are engineered to take on heavier doors. There is no other product at any price which brings together all the features and options that the TECTUS® hinge system offers. With Simonswerk’s worldwide reputation as a conscientious manufacturer of state-of-the-art hinges, you can be assured that you have provided your project with the highest quality hardware available anywhere.
TECTUS® is a comprehensive system offering options for wood, steel, and aluminum frames, permanent power transfer, a complete range of optimized door capacities, and, of course, the ability to adjust them.
