The Self-Closing Garage Entry Door Solution

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), an estimated 6,600 residential building garage fires were reported to United States fire departments each year and caused an estimated 30 deaths, 400 injuries, and $457 million in property loss.

A closed garage door could have slowed the spread of many of those fires, so it’s important to make sure that your garage door is closed when you’re not using it.  Installing a self-closing door closer is an effective way to ensure a safe residential environment.  Spring hinges are the most common hardware for garage entry doors, however, they tend to slam rather violently, which is not only unsafe but is quite noisy and unsettling.

THE WATERSON SOLUTION

Waterson Closer Hinges are an ideal solution for garage entry doors. They look like traditional hinges, however they function like door closers.

With easily adjustable speed control, Waterson hinges are well suited to meet any closing needs.  This guarantees safe closing speeds better than traditional spring hinges, as well as long lasting and reliable function.
