We were recently queried for rather specific detailed requirements regarding our ability to satisfy hotel self-closing pool gate hinges. This gentleman asked about our hinge durability, weight tolerance, speed & snap adjustment, and more. He was particularly interested in our hinge latch capability, as it pertains to negative degree swing.
Negative degree swing is an important feature to ensure effective latching especially in daycare centers, schools, and commercial swimming pools where safety is essential. The Waterson spring-loaded gate hinge closing degree can easily be adjusted by the installed set screw between a functional range of -4d – 0d, which guarantees snap closing, security, and peace of mind.
