Waterson mechanical hinges are great for high frequency use heavy doors. State-of-the-art heat treated carbide components and EN-certified springs ensure durability, effectiveness, and longevity. Your heavy duty commercial doors will close effectively at a controlled speed every time due to durable and constant braking force. You can simply let the door close on it’s own without any hand force to avoid accelerated closing speed. Ideal for hotel rooms, fire rated doors, and arch top openings, to name a few.


On the other hand, if quiet closing, breezy environment and users pushing too hard are chief concerns then you may want to consider choosing the Waterson hydraulic hybrid self-closing hinges due to its oil-controlled dynamic braking. Also an effective closing component, particularly in breezy conditions, Waterson hydraulic hinges respond well sans leakage to sudden wind changes with exceptional quietness. Great for offices, rugged exterior environments as low as -32F, glass doors, and more.
