Self Closing Function

Self-closing door hinges are designed with precision and control. These hinges offer versatility, fitting residential, commercial, and industrial needs. The standout self-closing feature enhances safety and security. It automatically closes doors, aiding fire safety and preventing smoke spread. Additionally, it ensures doors aren’t left open, enhancing building security. With Waterson’s hinge systems, users enjoy convenience, safety, and adaptability, while maintaining security and safety standards.

Adjustable Speed Control

Commercial spring hinges are designed with a state-of-the-art speed control function that allows users to precisely adjust to make the door automatically close. The patented visual numerical panel allows users to easily adjust the desired closing force. Tension correction ensures effective door closing, as well as efficient installation thanks to this innovative and precise force-setting capability. This design works in cooperation with an anti-slamming speed control mechanism, which ensures that your doors will close smoothly at the desired swing speed.

Door Closer Hydraulic Mechanism

Many door hinges, particularly the self-closing ones, employ hydraulic mechanisms to regulate the speed and force at which the door closes. These heavy-duty hydraulic hinges offer convenient adjustability to slow down the door’s movement, preventing harsh slams. Each Waterson hinge integrates innovative dual functionalities positioned at opposite ends of the barrel. For instance, our HA type encompasses a hydraulic damper (H) for controlled closure and swing speed (A) to reduce the rate of closing. These hinges implement hydraulic fluid to ensure smooth and well-managed door closure.

Weight Loading

Enter the heavy-duty stainless steel door hinge. With rounded edges, these hinges offer increased strength, addressing the challenge of heavyweight doors. For instance, the gate closer hinge made of stainless steel is a testament to this strength. A trio of these hinges can comfortably support loads over 260 lbs, ideal for heavy gates. Need more support? A set of four can bear up to 440 lbs.

Durability and Resistance

Heavy-duty spring-loaded gate hinges have passed UL certification tests, proving their durability in challenging conditions like strong winds and corrosive environments. The patented large-diameter barrel design ensures excellent shock absorption and longevity. Additionally, Waterson gate hinges for heavy gates offer unparalleled durability with their corrosion-resistant material, minimizing maintenance and bolstering resistance to external environments.
