Exceptional Heavy Duty Gate Closer Hinges - Waterson Multi-function Closer Hinge

Exceptional Heavy Duty Gate Closer Hinges

More and more project managers are reaching out to us every day with requests for heavy-duty hinge functionality. Many of these high-frequency commercial retail locations need a durable solution that is also ADA compliant. Interior gates are generally lightweight, however, they need to withstand the daily rigors of frequent operation, as well as the possibility of unorthodox use; employees and customers in cash wrap areas might sit or lean on gates creating excessive load.

Client’s Interior Study Gate Requirement:

  • ADA compliance
  • Door spec 29"x36", 16lbs but require 180~200lbs loading capacity
  • 2 hinges on each door.
While sitting on a lightweight gate may not be advised, Waterson heavy-duty hinges provide a durable solution for high-frequency use locations like the ones mentioned above. Crafted with stainless steel, our gate closer hinges provide an impressive 440lb maximum load. In addition, Waterson hinges are ADA-compliant, meeting 5lbs opening force, as well as 5 seconds minimum closing speed from 90° to 12°.
