The self-closing weld-on hinge is a great option to have in place of other traditional hinges. With a weight rating of 800 lbs. per pair, these hinges offer heavy-duty capabilities for doors and gates. Unlike typical hinges, these require special care during installation to assure the self-closing feature works properly. Whether you're using these for your home or a client, you'll love the final result that the self-closing weld-on hinge produces.
There are a variety of things to know about the self-closing weld-on hinge before choosing it for your doors, gates, or both. Made of natural steel, the hinge is highly durable and not handed, so it can be installed on the left or right of your frame. It self-closes using a machined surface and the natural force of gravity, so you won't have to pull your doors or gates closed—if installed correctly, the self-closing weld-on hinge should close right behind you. It uses a grease fitting and a standard grease dispensing tip found on many grease guns. It'll also allow you to open doors and gates wider than 90 degrees, but this will solely depend on how you install it. The hinge has a floating hinge pin that will enable you to lift your door or gate. The centerline of the hinge pins of each hinge must be exactly aligned with one another. It's also important that your door or gate be at least 50% of the hinge's weight rating, so 400 lbs. deadweight in this particular instance.
