Materials are one of the most important features that need to be considered when it comes to outdoor gate hinges. This is especially true for ones that are exposed to harsh environments such as chlorinated pools and saltwater areas where the environmental particles can have a corrosive effect. Heavy-duty hinges that are crafted out of 316 stainless steel hinges provide optimal longevity and durability, particularly in corrosive environments.

Heavy-duty stainless steel gate hinges tend to cost more, yet they are much more durable and reliable in rugged environments. Waterson 316 stainless steel marine hinges are much more weather-resistant and less affected by chemical exposure due to chromium, nickel, and molybdenum elemental properties. Therefore, this material provides an impressive commercial gate lifespan. Some of the key benefits of 316 stainless steel door hinges include:
