An Attractive ADA Bathroom Door Closer Requirement
Choosing the right door closer for high-end bathroom applications depends largely on utility and aesthetics. According to ADA 604.8.2 Ambulatory Accessible Compartments, restroom compartment doors shall be self-closing. Pivot hinges generally aren’t suitable for stall doors due to toe clearance code, while continuous hinges pose installation cost and service problems. At the same time, unsightly door closers can ruin the look of a well-designed space.
Retrofit Friendly Sleek StyleWaterson Closer Hinges are a great option because they can easily be set to meet 9 - 12” clearance requirements, thus making them an ideal replacement option for complicated continuous hinges and traditional closing mechanisms. With Waterson, you can achieve self-closing functionality by simply installing three closer hinges. At the same time, crafted with sleek stainless steel Waterson Closer Hinges compliment any interior style.
