Project Description

Waterson recently received a project request from Hiebsch Custom Homes (HCH). HCH has selected Waterson as one of the potential door hinge manufacturers for various types of single gates, including those with auto-close, electronic latch, and electronic latch auto-close features. These hinges are intended for installation in residential rooms.

The Fusion of Robustness and Design

Waterson gate hinges, as required by HCH, are crafted with heavy-duty stainless steel grade 316, ensuring both durability and exquisite aesthetics. These heavy-duty hinges effortlessly meet HCH’s specified material standards and weight-loading requirements. Furthermore, our hinges boast a range of elegantly refined finishes, including the distinguished Flat Black Finish (U19) chosen by HCH for its stylish appeal. With a weight capacity of up to 150 lbs per 2 hinges, our durable and sturdy hinges are built to withstand heavy loads.

Meeting Special Requirement

Although the original specification requested the removal of the self-closing mechanism, we have considered other outstanding functions that our hinges can offer. For instance, our high-grade 316 stainless steel materials are corrosion-resistant and require low maintenance. While Waterson heavy-duty hinges are equipped with a self-closing mechanism by default, the speed control can be easily adjusted to tailor the door’s behavior, allowing it to function as either a hold-open or a self-closing unit based on specific needs.
