Project Name: Gulaylar Group Istanbul Umraniye Just Work Offices
Project Architect and Build Company: Faal Aluminium İstanbul
Product: Hydraulic hinges
Model: Biloba Evo
In a multi-functional, modern, and welcoming space like the Just Work in Istanbul, new generation offices have been created, conceived as workspaces that maximize efficiency to meet the needs of companies and professionals. The design considered the need to rethink workplaces in a new way, placing the individual at the centre of stimulating and complex spaces.
The design proposals were thus reconceived and sometimes redesigned to measure, in particular flexibility, movement, and the continuous game of trespassing between home and office are the themes on which the project was based.
In this multifaceted context in which architecture is dominant, the Biloba Evo hydraulic hinges, in the black version, were chosen as door closers for all the glass doors in the offices. Colcom’s hydraulic hinges with automatic and controlled closing with a reduced and essential design were the perfect accessory in this context.
Colcom’s rich production stands out for the hydraulic system applied to door closer hydraulic hinges. This is a new concept of the classic hinge, conceived and realised by our R&D department, covered by international patent.
Biloba Evo is the exceptional and revolutionary hinge with integrated door closer, for inner and outer doors with a stop. It is the first hinge with adjustable closing and constant brake control, for every opening angle up to 180°. It is also available in the version with automatic closing from 90° to 0°, constant braking control and free movement from 90° to 180°.
The hinge features a damper which prevents from unhinging and an over-pressure device, preventing from breakages in case of accidental movement of the door.
These hydraulic hinges have obtained by TÜV the certification EN 1154, classifying them as door closers, even though their performance is much superior (>90% for the hinges against 50-60% for the traditional door closers).
