Replace traditional spring hinges with Waterson’s if you hate slamming

I currently use Stanley/Hager/Bommer spring hinges on my office doors, which cause terrible slamming and vibration. Can Waterson fix the problem? Also, is it possible to replace traditional spring hinges with Waterson Hinges?

Visibility is crucial to the accurate adjustment

First, yes Waterson Hinge can easily fix your slamming problem. Traditional hinges typically can only adjust tension force, however, Waterson hinges allow you to adjust both tension and speed control. This helps Waterson hinges perform more like door closers.

Second, you can definitely replace traditional spring hinges with Waterson closing systems. Waterson follows the same ANSI A156.1 standard that brands like Bommer LB4310C, Stanley 2060r, and Hager EC1105 adhere to.
