Concealed doors are a design trend around the world due to their clean, modern look. They are desirable for their unobtrusive hidden appeal as entrances to private spaces like restrooms, dressing rooms, and storage spaces, particularly in urban areas. In order to achieve this modest modern aesthetic, however, it requires that concealed doors are fitted with a self-closing mechanism to prevent partial open that could ruin appearance, style, and function.
Sadly door closer options can be a bit of a challenge when it comes to these hidden swinging gems. A traditional push-side door closer provides the needed self-closing, however, these big, bulky closers destroy the desired hidden design. A pull-side door closer requires a frame making installation difficult. Similarly, continuous hinges and concealed door closers are challenging to install, as well as being time-consuming and expensive.
On the other hand, Waterson concealed door closer hinges install as easily as traditional spring hinges, however, they also provide an important adjustable speed control self-closing function.

In addition, with Waterson hinges, you can achieve custom concealed door style and function at a moderate price. Therefore, Waterson is an ideal choice for concealed door installation and retrofitting.
