The doors are designed with a top and bottom pivoting axis; this solution allows the opening of the leaves in both directions equally and, the elimination of the typical overlapping between the door leaves profiles and frames. Avoiding the use of hinges gives the opportunity to provide to each leave an independent use, being able to activate or deactivate the use of each leave depending on the requirements.
