The Success Formula – Art Boulle and You

Art Boulle specializes in crafting doors of all designs, curating to each client, designer, and/or builder’s vision. These unique collaborations enable Art Boulle to not only create extraordinary designs, but to also create pivot door designs that are exclusive to each space.

With such potential, Art Boulle provides its clients with endless possibilities to open new domains and cater to any design vision.

The Pivot System

The door opens on a pivot system which enables it to rotate when being used. The FritsJurgens system is below and above the radar of the door, operating as hidden hinge mechanism.

Requiring no structural elements to the floor or ceiling, the pivot balances itself perfectly enabling the door to operate with just the touch of a finger.

The design of the pivot system is around 3” thick and provides a seamless experience. Alongside, Art Boulle caters all its doors to such details and requirements. 

Realizing Dreams, Art Boulle Style

A strong and stunning house requires a strong and stunning entrance. On a heavily wooded lot in an established Oakville neighborhood sits a stunning modern home by David Small Designs, the dream entrance door designed by Art Boulle.

Operating on Fritsjurgens Pivot System M, the contemporary wood door is 4” in thickness and weighs 1000 pounds, showcasing a custom gold door-pull. The door features a pattern of rectangular blocks which interweave throughout the surface. These blocks protrude and provide a modern aesthetic appeal to the eye of the visitor.

The patented pivot system under the surface of the door provides flawless movement of the mechanism and works independently with no additional support required from its surroundings.

As the pivot system is based on an uncompromising premise i.e. premium materials and excellent craftsmanship, Art Boulle’s installed systems are meant to last a lifetime.

The system is built to endure the harshest of conditions while staying hidden. Further complimented by FritsJurgens technology, System M+ introduces Latch Control and 30° Speed Control. Latch Control enables the door to accelerate in the last 10° of the movement of the door to ensure proper latching of the door.
