D&D Technologies, manufacturer of high-performance gate hardware, has added the Face Mount gate hinge to its line of Shut It industrial products. The Face Mount opens to a full 180 degrees for unobstructed pass-through and is available in bolt-on or weld-on models.
“This innovative extension of our popular Shut It line of hinges solves many challenges that installers face on nearly every job,” said Jim Paterson, D&D’s VP of sales and marketing. “Its price point makes it attractive to the end customer, which reduces installer stress during the quoting and bidding phase.
Face Mount gate hinges are manufactured with the industry’s first maintenance-free, high-temperature sealed bearings — which are safe to powder coat with the hinges installed on the gate. They are horizontally adjustable for easy and ideal installations and proper gate movement. The Face Mount’s adjustability enables gate gaps as small as 1/2″ for an aesthetic appearance and heightened security.
“Its adjustability and durability means almost no call backs and replacements once installed,” added Paterson. “And, its 180-degree swing and tight mounting capability deliver performance and clean aesthetics.”
The Face Mount’s maximum gate weight is 1,100 lb. The products have been CNC machined to the tightest tolerance in the industry with near frictionless movement. Zinc electroplating construction offers long-lasting rust and corrosion protection. Shut It hinges have been tested on over one million open and close cycles, and feature a limited lifetime warranty.
