Discover the Difference in Hardware by D&D Technologies
Many of the self-closing hinges we carry in our selection are manufactured by none other than D&D Technologies, a name that has been synonymous with quality and security for the last several decades. D&D's self-closing hardware collection includes SureClose and TruClose products for a variety of applications. TruClose encompasses a collection of adjustable, self-closing gate hinges that are suitable for gates weighing up to 66 pounds with a maximum gate load of up to 550 pounds. These hinges are quick and easy to install. We also carry an assortment of heavy-duty TruClose hinges for metal, vinyl, and wood gates. Best of all, these hinges will not rust and never need any lubrication. Every hinge in this collection has been independently tested to comply with strict safety standards, especially those relating to stringent swimming pool safety codes. You should always check with your building department for requirements.
SureClose hinges were originally designed to replace conventional hinges, closers, and header arrangements by using a unique design that hides the closer hydraulics inside the fence post. These hinges are ideal for commercial, industrial, and residential and estate gates. We offer three basic models to choose from: Bolt-On, ReadyFit, and Weld-On. SureClose provides quiet, smooth, and consistent closing force in a tamper-resistant design. Our SureClose Safety ReadyFit hinges are ideal for swimming pool gates and come with either high-strength aluminum or steel mounting brackets for screw-on applications. Safety versions can be opened up to 90 degrees, making them ideal for areas where safety is a primary concern, whereas non-safety hinges can be opened up in either direction, up to 180 degrees.

Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
