Aesthetically Pleasing — no obtrusive closer arm

Waterson Closer Hinges offer two self-closing systems to ensure your door closing experience. Our purely mechanical system not only provides strong enough tensions to close & latch the eyebrow doors but also includes a unique braking device to make sure the door closing without slam noise. Our patented hydraulic hybrid system, on the other hand, focuses on quiet and soft closing and especially works quite well in interior environments.
You can choose traditional door closers and they do support self-closing for arched top doors. However, due to the Skewed and tiled shape, the big door closer somehow looks displaced and awkward on the round top door.
Waterson Closer Hinges combine door closers, spring hinges, and an optional hold open feature into one attractive & unobtrusive component. Simply install template hinges on the door and frame, set up speed adjustment, and self-closing arched doors are ready.
