The Waterson self-closing swing clear door hinge (also known as an offset hinge) unique leaf design can maximize door openings by allowing single swing doors to “swing away,” creating more opening space. This added space can be beneficial for meeting self-closing accessibility needs, as well as ADA and FHA codes, particularly when constraints or clearance issues exist.
Easy to install and crafted out of heavy-duty stainless steel, the K51L-SW meets ADA code and moves the hinge barrel away, thus providing a minimum 32” clearance when using a 34” door slab. This attractive hinge is also 3-hours fire-rated hardware and UL Grade 1 certified. This swing clear self-closing hinge provides optimal user experience in wheelchair accessible doorways like hospitals, hotels, multi-family housing, and nursing homes, to name a few.
