D&D Technologies’ new Shut It VersaWeld gate hinge delivers immediate weld-mount flexibility right out of the box. VersaWeld is engineered to be cleanly welded to flat or round surfaces — or a combination of both — without the need of unsightly adapters.
“The Shut It Versa-Weld BadAss line offers a legitimate option to the traditional, clunky, center-mount barrel hinges,” says Jim Paterson, D&D’s VP of sales and marketing. “Versa-Weld appeals to installers for its convenience, durability, adjustability, and maintenance-free performance. They can take it anywhere and use it almost any situation they encounter.”
The new gate hinges are manufactured with the industry’s first maintenance-free, high-temperature sealed bearings. They are safe to powder-coat while the hinges are installed on the gate. By using VersaWeld the result is clean, reliable welds, which require zero angle iron adaptor application for round surfaces.
Versa-Weld’s maximum gate weight is 1,100 lb, The precision bushing distributes gate load for optimal performance and hinge longevity. In addition, the zinc electroplating construction means long-lasting rust and corrosion protection. Shut It hinges have been tested to more than one million open and close cycles and feature a limited lifetime warranty.
Shut It Versa-Weld is an ideal upgrade to legacy-style block and center-mounted barrel hinges. It’s one hinge that can handle nearly any mounting challenge in the field, according to D&D Technologies. VersaWeld enables installers to eliminate the need to stock hinges for a variety of applications, leading to savings in inventory costs.
