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?

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. Seven Innovative Features We recently helped a local university replace spring hinges in their classrooms. Teachers had been frequently complaining that the disconcerting noise and vibration caused by students entering and exiting distracted the learning environment.
