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.
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-second closing requirements, Waterson hinges are suitable for disabled individuals, as well as young children. Learn ADA
