Commercial Self-Closing Gate Hinges Heavy-Duty
Even if gate hinges are the smallest part of your gate setup, they are some of the most important. After all, the gate hinge keeps your gate attached to your fence. Remember that all it takes for an accident to happen is for one of your hinges to fail. Usually, gate hinges break or shift when a gate is being used, meaning that if your gate is manual or a pedestrian gate, someone could get hurt.
Also, if your gate is quite heavy, children pulling and pushing on your gate could cause a malfunction and possibly start a severe medical emergency. Therefore, when it comes to hinges for a gate, a heavy-duty hinge is the prime solution. If you want to go even further regarding the safety of your hinge, a self-closing hinge is the way to go. These hinges close when a gate is released, offering a safe way to make sure a gate is closed.
Do Self-Closing Hinges Offer More Safety?
Many regulations concerning pool safety require a self-closing and self-latching gate. Self-closing hinges accompany a compatible pool safety latch to ensure a gate meets safety regulations. Since self-closing hinges only need to be pushed, kicked, or bumped to close a pool gate with a compatible latch, it’s the only way to verify that a gate is closed.
If you do not have a self-closing hinge with your pool, you may not be paying attention to the regulations set out by the municipal governing body and putting pets and children at risk of drowning. Take the initiative and find a heavy-duty self-closing hinge.
