A chain-link gate hinge is an integral component in chain-link fencing systems. It functions as a pivotal point that facilitates the smooth opening and closing of the fence gate. Constructed from durable and weather-resistant metal, these hinges are designed to withstand various conditions.

Standards for Chain-Link Gate Closer Performance

Typically, chain-link gate closers are surface-mounted and provide crucial support by connecting the gate to the post. These hinges should ensure stability and effortless movement of the gate while maintaining its performance. In breezy conditions, particularly during the fall and winter seasons, chain-link gate closers should offer optimal longevity and durability to withstand strong winds
