In the realm of architectural innovation, the essence of thoughtful design is often found in the most unexpected details, such as the functionality of a door closer. The door closer’s backcheck function, which relies on valve hydraulic action, prevents slamming while closing the door, controls opening, and minimizes potential damage to the wall and nearby objects. It also allows for adjustable delayed action to help slow down the door’s swing and add an extra layer of safety. Moreover, depending on the desired latch speed, adjustments on the closer body’s counterclockwise or clockwise rotation allow for increased or decreased latch speed.

Stainless Steel Door Stoop

Unlike traditional door closers, Waterson, on the other hand, provides an integrated stainless steel door stop to achieve the same purpose as backcheck. This door stop is physically attached to the hinge barrel to stop the door at 85(o), making it both durable and highly effective.  You can easily install the door stop yourself at any time after purchase by simply adding the part.  However, if installed at the factory, we will fix it to the hinge with screws and weld it for greater durability. Factory welded is particularly useful for commercial applications like schools, hospitality, and hotels, to name a few.



Heavy-duty & Low Maintenance

If some violent and unusual activities take place at a school, it is still possible that the screws attaching the hinge barrel to the door stops may come loose. However, the door stop is made of strong and durable stainless steel material and can be very hard to break. With minimal effort, you can easily replace the loose screws with appropriate ones and quickly resolve the issue.
