More and more commercial retailer stores are reaching out to us with requests for heavy duty metal gate hinges functionality. Many of these high-frequency commercial retail locations need a durable solution that is also ADA-compliant. As a result, the metal gate hinges generally need to withstand the daily rigors of frequent operation, as well as the possibility of uncommon use.

Client’s Study Gate Requirement:

  • ADA compliance
  • Door spec 29″x36″, 160lbs but require 180~200lbs loading capacity
  • 2 hinges on each door.

Heavy Duty Self-Closing Solutions

Waterson self closing weld on metal gate hinges ideally meet the requirements while solving heavy weight issues. Crafted by stainless steel, the hinges add more strength on substantial loads. Commercial gates that are used often gain safety advantages from a welded hinge – welding guarantees a lasting connection and a secure swing. Moreover, our gate hinges meet IRC AG105.2.8 code-compliant safety, as well as ADA-compliant with 5 lbs opening force, door stop feature and different speed control functionality on commercial metal gates.

For the best performance, we suggest to spot weld our hinges under the condition that the hinges are well-adjust to exactly the user’s desire and making sure there are no further adjustments need to be made.

Unique Side Post Design

When heavy-duty gate hinges are for full-surface and mid-post applications on uneven surfaces, Waterson’s metal hinges can easily be mounted. Thanks to their unique offset barrel hinge design, these hinges offer superior installation versatility. Unlike many bulky and delicate gate closers, our robust hinges maintain consistent and reliable performance.
