Nationwide Industries Heavy-Duty Gate Hinge Hits Millionth Cycle

August 18, 2021

Heavy-Duty Self-Closing Hinge Now Features Million-Cycle Warranty

Nationwide Industries, a leader in providing durable, versatile hardware products to fencing and railing contractors in the United States and Canada, is proud to offer its industry-leading million-cycle warranty on the Heavy-Duty Self-Closing Hinge. The hinge reached one million cycles and has met and exceeded warranty testing.

Before launching in March 2021, the Heavy-Duty Self-Closing Hinge underwent testing that included more than 500,000 cycles on a 200-pound, 6’-by-6’ gate to ensure the product was primed for rigorous, repetitive use. Product testing continued after the initial launch to reach one million cycles for the hinge to carry the Nationwide Industries Million-Cycle Warranty.

“Our engineers design innovative products that maximize functionality and lifespan of components, and our product testing ensures that our products can withstand repetitive use without any repairs or decrease in functionality,” said Erik Timothy, director of engineering at Nationwide Industries. “The distinctive operation of this hinge delivers even more reliable protection, and it’s heavy-construction commercial design is built to last.”

Unlike other products currently available in the marketplace, the Heavy Duty Self-Closing Hinge features ball bearings on both the top and bottom of the spring, which enables a gate to open and close more smoothly and efficiently. The hinge features adjustable tension, easy-to-adjust closing speeds, and horizontal adjustment.
