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.

Teachers had been frequently complaining that the disconcerting noise and vibration caused by students entering and exiting distracted the learning environment. We helped the university solve this problem by replacing the spring hinges with Waterson self-closing systems. As a result, classroom doors closed quietly and concentration skyrocketed.
