DORMA Glas now offers TENSOR, a stylish double-action hinge for glass doors. The device returns the door to closed position by the action of the hinges alone, without the use of a recessed floor or overhead closer, which is sometimes not an option due to environmental restrictions. It is perfect for interior applications like professional offices and art galleries, or anywhere else where minimal, modern design is desired. The TENSOR hinges are available for installation directly to the masonry or frame and is also available for installation to a fixed glass side panel.
The hinge offers a slightly convex, radiused form, reminiscent of the award-winning ARCOS design by DORMA. It features an inlay which serves as a mechanical stop for the hinge, protecting the surface of the fixed hinge section from damage when the door is opened to 90 degrees.
TENSOR includes a fast and easy zero position adjustment for alignment of a single door, or pair of doors. At 90 degrees, the TENSOR system holds the door firmly and securely in position. Once pushed in the closing direction, the spring mechanism of the TENSOR fitting takes over, operating from an angle of 80 degrees.
TENSOR is available for single- and double- leaf doors for 3/8" (10 mm) or 1/2" (12 mm) glass and can accommodate a maximum weight of 143 lbs (65 kg). TENSOR has been third-party verified to 500,000 operating cycles, the only double acting hinge on the market to do so.
