1 Question asked about Stainless Steel Ball Bearing Hinge
Q Mark Christian • 01/19/2018, 3:11:09 PM What is the weight rating of the 5" model of this hinge? I'm hanging a 250 lb 7' wide gate.
A 01/22/2018, 6:44:35 PM While the manufacturer of this hinge doesn't provide specific weight ratings on their hinges, they do offer guidelines. For the 5" x 5" hinge, they recommend up to 175 lb and 48" wide. So, with that in mind, it seems that this hinge would likely be a too light duty for your application. My first thought would be to use a Heavy Duty J Bolt Hinge, which you can see here: https://www.hardwaresource.com/heavy-duty-j-bolt-hinge.html These are very heavy duty hinges that are often used on heavy and wide gates. Do note that each gate installation can vary greatly, so it's possible that this may not be the best hinge for you. If you would like more recommendations, feel free to send us an email at [email protected] with further details (such as photos of the gate or architectural drawings) and we would be happy to assist further!
