Traditional concealed door closers can certainly improve entryway aesthetics by hiding closing mechanisms inside doors or frames. At the same time, they successfully satisfy space issues where there may not be enough meat for an overhead door closer. However, door manufacturers in particular sometimes take issue with using traditional concealed door closers. They cite a variety of concerns including, but not limited to, costs associated with additional machining, standardization, and transport.

Machining & Standardization Conflicts

Traditional concealed door closers generally require that they be embedded in either the door or frame, which causes manufacturers to do additional cost-raising procedures. Plus, sometimes machining is done rather than rushed due to project time constraints. This can also lead to costly mistakes, damage, and delays. At the same time, some large projects utilize a wide variety of door closer models, which impedes achieving cost-effective standardization. 

Transport Costs

Door manufacturers have reported that doors machined for traditional concealed closers tend to be fragile and easily damaged due to hollow inner space. At the same time, manufacturers often need to reinforce shipments with added packaging, which obviously leads to added cost and environmental waste. 

Waterson Solves Cost Issue

Waterson closer hinge’s innovative design provides smooth and effective door-closing function and durability without increasing costs. As a standard template hinge, additional costly machining is not necessary. At the same time, because doors using Waterson hinges do not require extensive hollowing machining, they maintain their strength and reduce the possibility of costly damage. Moreover, strengthened doors using Waterson hinges don’t need to be reinforced with costly and environmentally unfriendly packaging. Waterson hinges are a cost-effective concealed self-closing option.
