Self closing gates hinges are very strong and include an internal spring mechanism allowing the aluminum gate to slowly, self close. Can be used with our aluminum gates, driveway gates and estate gates up to a certain width. Wider Commercial and Industrial gates require our Heavy Duty Gate Hinge. These hinges are required for gates installed as a pool enclosure barrier in most US jurisdictions for child safety. Not recommended for gates you intend to automate with a gate operator.
When you order self closing, spring loaded hinges along with one or more of our gates, the hinges are packaged separately and not attached to your gate. Furthermore, your aluminum gate will not have pre-punched holes; you, or whomever is installing the gate, decide the hinge-to-post placement on-site during installation.
Spring loaded hinges are required, in most jurisdictions in the United States, to be used on swimming pool gates so that young children can’t waltz into a pool area unaccompanied by and adult. Unintentional drowning is a huge problem in the United States with approximately 3500 deaths per year.*
