Great innovation from one little idea:
a new door closing technology

From home improvement to world-changing:
door closers redefined.

About seven years ago, the massive and heavy cast iron door of Waterson’s home dragged down and deformed the attached door closer. Marble floor was scratched and damaged from this tiled door. After many futile attempts of repair, one simple idea started to form in Waterson’s mind. One idea originated from the frustration with the door closing technology at that time.

According to research data from U.S. National Library of Medicine, there were 1.4 million door-related injuries from 1999~2008. That’s 1 injury in every 4 minutes! In 2012, Taiwan, a violist’s finger was pinched and severed by a door with a broken door closer in a public library. This news made the headlines and the government paid nearly two million dollars as state compensation.

It suddenly dawned on us that our simple idea of innovation may make a huge difference to the world. From then on, we embarked on a journey that would change the world of door closers.

Failure is not an option. Neither is fear.
