Founded in 1979, Waterson Corporation has more than 40 years experience in the hardware business. Through those years, Waterson has earned over 100 utility patents, including SAFLOK Coupling and W-LOK Padlock, which are known industry-wide for their 10x safety. At the same time, Waterson has earned numerous international awards, including gold medals at 1995 Inpex XI Invention Expo in the United States, 1995 Japanese Good Design “G” Mark, and the 1996 24th Salon International Des Inventions Geneva, to name a few.
In 2005, Waterson began developing automatic door closers, and after six dedicated years we officially launched the Waterson Stainless Steel Auto Door-Closer Hinge. This marked the industry’s first stainless steel closer hinge that featured noiseless closing. Then in 2015, we introduced an innovative hybrid hinge that combines mechanical and hydraulic technology. Today Waterson Closer Hinges are used around the world in commercial and residential applications.
