Heavy-duty ball-bearing hinges are crafted to handle hefty loads, making them essential in places like busy commercial and industrial spots where doors get a workout. These hinges, with their ball bearings, smooth outdoor movement and lessened wear, promise a sturdy and reliable life even in high-traffic spots. Waterson Closer Hinge, even though without a ball-bearing design, boasts many of the durable and friction-cutting features typical of heavy-duty ball-bearing hinges, delivering a similarly smooth and lasting performance.
Engineering the Ball Bearing Parallel Functionality
Unlike traditional heavy-duty ball bearing hinges, Waterson Hinges employ an investment casting process to forge a stronger hinge leaf, effectively addressing weight concerns of up to 440 lbs. Moreover, they boast a unique combination of a stamped washer and metal surface chrome plating, elevating wear resistance. The hard chrome plating adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring seamless and efficient operation even in conditions of metal-on-metal friction and prolonged use. While lacking a ball bearing mechanism, Waterson Hinges boast an impressive durability that rivals traditional ball bearing designs.

Further, with adaptable speed adjustability, this hinge accommodates varied usage preferences, maintaining robust strength while also offering smooth, controllable, and ultimately, user-friendly door operation.
