“I searched for an appropriate hinge for nearly ten years,” says West Michigan Community Bank Facility Coordinator Frank Dyke. But it wasn’t until I found Waterson that I solved my gate-closing problem. Previously I had tried many different hinges on our bank teller gates, however, I found that most hinges didn’t work. Traditional cheap spring hinges tended not to close well or slam aggressively. In either case, it would disrupt the entire office. We needed wooden gate hinges heavy-duty with sufficient closing force to latch effectively without slamming. Luckily I found Waterson.”

As was true at West Michigan Community Bank, gate-closing hardware can be an unstated critical component in a professional office. A poorly closing, slamming hinge can easily disrupt the workplace. Generally, banks install teller gates to separate the professional space from the customers, yet as a half door, customers can still feel connected to the staff. Therefore, the ideal wood gate hinges need to be heavy-duty, durable, quiet, and aesthetically suitable in a serious workplace.

Quiet and Aesthetics Consideration

Banks strive to maintain a professional sonic environment, characterized by soft sounds and a serene atmosphere. Disruptive noises like slamming doors or gates not only hinder daily operations but also create a sense of unease in the workspace. Introducing Waterson soft-closing hinges, equipped with full speed control and adjustable dampers, ensures a seamless and noiseless closing experience. Not only are these hinges acoustically suitable for office places, but their unique design PVD Finish also adds a professional appeal to the banking environments.
