TECTUS Glass – Flush glass doors in the limelight

The New TECTUS Glass provides aesthetic and functional solution for the minimal, flush-fitting installation of glass doors. The completely concealed hinge system creates a flush door structure for interior rooms. The design of the hardware solution is elegant and minimalistic. TECTUS TEG 310 2D makes sure that the door leaf lies in the same plane as the hinge and the frame. The hinge system carries load capacities up to 80 kg. The overall installation is extremely easy as no glass preparation is required.

The concealed hinge system gives the glass door unprecedented transparency and lightness, for contemporary interior design concepts. The patented hinge technology is barely visible and provides a reliable and durable function due to the stable hinge properties. The hinge technology is suitable for 8 and 10 mm glass doors in interior constructions for high-quality residential and heavy-duty projects with timber, steel and aluminium frames.

Comprehensive hardware solution for glass doors

The new glass door solution from SIMONSWERK includes not only the TECTUS Glass hinge system but also a magnetic latch and handles as an alternative to standard components. The closing magnet and the strike plate on the frame provide a contactless and silent closing process which can be adjusted to the desired latching strength of the door. All components of the new solution have a minimalistic design and are therefore suitable for use with modern timber interior doors.
