Project Description

Previously consumers typically chose “floor springs” as frameless glass doors hardware due to a dearth of other options. While floor springs generally work well and provide self-closing features, they do require a significant installation effort when retrofitting an existing doorway. Besides, humidity and moisture can pose a real problem for floor spring function and longevity.

Environments like the bathroom shown in the video are inevitably humid due to cleaning and excessive water evaporation. The floor spring’s embedded ground hinges are prone to rust as a result of this excess moisture. Rust ultimately leads to poor floor spring function that can easily result in loss of the self-closing feature.
