D&D launches revolutionary hydraulic hinge & closer, all-in-one

10/11/2011 -- HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA:  D&D Technologies has introduced a new line of concealed hydraulic hinge gate closers designed specifically for commercial, industrial and estate gates, the SureClose® Adjustable Gate Closer & Hinge.  The stylishly designed hinge gate closers use high strength aluminum with stainless steel components, are corrosion resistant, and a workhorse testing to 500,000 cycles with a 1,500 lb. load capacity, self-closing gates up to 260 lbs.

“It’s a significant innovation that will impact how the industry will equip self-closing gates,” says Jim Paterson, D&D’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “We envisioned a closer and hinge all-in-one that would revolutionize the fencing industry. SureClose packs technology into a compact hinge and is controlled by an advanced and tamper-resistant hydraulic closer that prevents gate slam noise, gate damage and doesn’t leak. It’s an astounding example of modern industrial design and precision engineering.”

SureClose is designed to replace conventional hinges, closers and header arrangements, through its unique design that hides the closer hydraulics inside the fence post. SureClose provides greater strength and performance compared to traditional heavy duty hinges and closers, with an installed cost at or below current options. Additionally, SureClose features D&D’s Dual Bearing Glide SystemTM, which delivers consistent superior performance due to its two sealed bearings.

SureClose comes in three basic models, with mounting brackets that cover most any square post installation, including steel or aluminum, flush mounted or center mounted, fastened or welded, with adjustable self-closing speed.  Models are also available that feature a final snap action for overcoming electric or coded locks found in many security applications and a non-self-closing version designed for large estate gates up to 1,500 lbs.  Ideal for access control gates. Each self-closing hinge comes with its own adjustment tool (excluding SM model) and gate mounting bracket.  Post mounting brackets are sold separately to custom fit the specific application.
