  • Door slamming could cause possible life-long figure injuries.

The US National Safety Council reports that more than 300,000 door-related injuries requiring emergency room treatment take place each year. For example, fast-moving, slamming doors can catch an unsuspecting young person’s fingers causing possible life-long injuries.  Incidents like these happen fairly often, but they can be easily preventable.

Safety First

Waterson closer hinges are equipped with highly-effective speed control mechanisms, which ensure controlled closing and safe speeds.  The Waterson hydraulic hybrid closer is designed with an innovative oil-controlled dynamic braking system.  This guarantees safe closing speeds better than traditional spring hinges due to the combined oil braking and precise spring tension-setting mechanism.  

As a result, we can prevent doors from slamming.  Designed to meet strict ADA greater-than-five-seconds closing requirements, Waterson hinges are suitable for disabled individuals, as well as young children. Learn ADA
