While square post and round post structures are prevalent in gate designs, the world of gate hardware is not limited to these traditional forms. Round posts, in particular, bring a classic and timeless feel to any setting. They are especially common in farm, garden, or industrial settings where their robustness and aesthetic appeal are highly valued.
A Case in Point
We recently had the opportunity to witness a particularly intriguing case involving a client’s innovative approach to gate installation. This client, with a specific goal to incorporate Waterson heavy-duty hinges into their design, faced the challenge of adapting these hinges to a round post gate. Demonstrating remarkable ingenuity, the client devised a unique solution: they custom-fabricated square plates and strategically attached them at the hinge installation points on their round gate. This creative adaptation facilitated the easy installation of round post gate hinges onto the square plates, blending functionality with aesthetic appeal.
Traditionally, heavy-duty gate closers are predominantly used in square post applications. However, as seen in the case study, with the right installation techniques, these heavy-duty round post gate hinges are remarkably adaptable for round post gates as well. The image below illustrates another similarly successful installation, highlighting how heavy-duty gate hinges can fulfill the diverse requirements of both square and round post gates. These hinges offer consistent performance and durability, showcasing their versatility across various gate designs.
