Waterson Stainless Steel “Quiet Close” Auto Door Closer Hinge owns the exclusive patent and is the only product which combines a Hinge – an adjustable Door Closer and an (Optional )  Hold Open without hydraulics.

Waterson recognized that just as the pot belly door closer, with its complicated installation seals that leaked and unsightly appearance, drove manufacturers to design the modern stream line door closer, a better solution was again needed. In addition, many doors that required door closers were utilizing spring hinges due to their ease of installation and esthetics. The problem with this application was that spring hinges did not have adjustments for closing speeds resulting in slamming doors. Last, many doors were being held open by a broom stick or an object between the door and frame causing door to rub and expensive hinge prep repairs.

The challenge Waterson faced in its six year development of the 3-in-1 hinge was how to fit so much functionality in a simple–easy to install product. After many trials and much effort, Waterson created the advance technology implemented in the “Quiet Close” hinge. Waterson believes, as with the evolution from the pot belly door closers to stream line doors closers, building mangers will now take the step to standardizing on the new design implemented with the Waterson “Quiet Close” hinge.
