Posted in: News,Installer & Reseller News,New Videos & Instructions,Product Launches 1/15/2014 – HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA:  D&D Technologies has introduced an external mounting addition to its highly successful SureClose line of hydraulic hinge gate closers, SureClose ReadyFit.   The new “ReadyFit” models come with side fixing legs for quick alignment and multiple, double-face fixing points for superior strength. Mounting bracket options include steel and aluminum that can either be welded or fastened.  Fasteners are included with every model.  Additionally, ReadyFit comes with vertical alignment slots while horizontal adjustment is controlled via the built-in adjustment feature.

“While these commercial-grade hinge-closers offer smooth, finely controlled gate closure, the greatest feature of our new ReadyFit models is the easy and convenient mounting style,” says D&D Technologies SVP Sales and Marketing, Jim Paterson.  “No need for drilling large holes, and fabricators and contractors choosing the steel bracket models can either weld or fasten using the Tek screws supplied.   SureClose ReadyFit is the breakthrough in gate hardware engineering the industry has been asking for.”

The heavy-duty ReadyFit mounting system is designed for use on metal, wood and vinyl gates.  Like all SureClose models, ReadyFit comes in a variety of closing options to cater to all types of commercial and residential gates.  There’s a version offering adjustable gate-closing speed and final snap-close action (to overcome electric or coded locks), and a load bearing model that is non-self-closing for use on access  control gates with a weight capacity of 1,500 lbs (680kgs).

The closer models will self-close gates weighing up to 260 lbs (120 kgs). ReadyFit also provides improved performance and tamper resistance, with the adjustable snap-close feature now providing 30% stronger action when required.  One option includes a ‘hold-open’ feature and permits gates to swing 180⁰.  In addition, each ReadyFit comes with a handy adjustment tool and provides a gate gap variance of ½” to  1 3/8”, which suits a wide variety of new and existing gates.    

The complete SureClose line is designed to replace conventional hinges and many of the commercial door and gate closers used in common applications. Installation examples include commercial/business complexes, government, school/universities, upscale homes, childcare centers, playgrounds, hotel/motels, shopping centers, apartments, gated communities, and even high-end residential pool gates.
