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 garage door with a self-closing function 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 self-closing heavy-duty garage door hinges is an effective way to ensure a safe residential environment. Heavy-duty spring hinges are the most common hardware for residential and commercial garage doors. However, they tend to slam rather violently, which is not only unsafe but is quite noisy and unsettling.
