Effective management in the hotel industry consists of balancing financial and operational efficiency with exceptional guest experiences. Achieving this requires providing top-notch dining services, ensuring customer satisfaction, and finding an affordable budget for hardware. One example project that successfully attained equilibrium in this aspect is the Omni Nashville Hotel in Tennessee. The Director of Engineering researched several options, and Waterson’s self-closing hinges proved to be the most ideal, effectively reducing expenses while improving the appeal.

Meets NFPA80 Fire Code

The spring mechanism is also an important component of life safety, ensuring that the door will close and latch in case of a fire or other emergency. Fire-rated doors must be equipped with approved listed door closers to limit the spread of smoke and heat from one area to another.

As an added benefit for users, we provide all standard commercial template sizes including 4”, 5”, up to 6” heavy duty commercial square spring hinges, which are all 3hr fire rated. Other screw patterns can be custom-made for particular project needs.  Click here to get more detailed  HOW TO ORDER information.

A Case Occur

At Omni Nashville Hotel, Waterson commercial door hinges reduced maintenance costs and prevented revenue loss from unoccupied rooms. The hinges proved to be highly reliable, requiring minimal adjustments even after a year of use on over 800 guest room metal doors.

In addition, Waterson hinges include an easily adjustable closing force that can match door weights in variety. All the mechanism is inside the hinge barrel so hotel clients will not see the traditional door closer arm which can be obtrusive to the hotel room aesthetics. This design works in cooperation with an anti-slamming speed control mechanism, which ensures that your doors will close smoothly at the desired swing speed.
