Full Height Windows
The Vitra Pivot has been in development for some time, mixing the slim sightlines of our minimally framed sliding glass doors into a full height window that can pivot open when required.
The finished design maintains all the neat detailing, slim profiles and integrated locking of our minimal windows sliding doors into a pivoting element that can reach heights of up to 3.7m and widths of 2.4m across.
Hidden stainless steel pivoting points allow the large glass element to move effortlessly within the holding aluminium frame. The pivot point of the slim framed pivoting window must be a minimum of 10mm from the closing edge of the opening but then may be moved anywhere up to the centre point for a centrally pivoted window.
The integrated aluminium thrust lever locking handle is easy and simple to operate, activating a two point locking device within the vertical sections with the simple turn.
Flush thresholds and a frameless open aperture are possible by hiding the head and base framing within the floor and ceiling. You can also integrate IQ’s flush threshold drainage channel to the external of the large pivot door if integrated drainage is required.
