D&D Technologies, a provider of high-performance gate hardware, has expanded its mounting bracket line by introducing three new sizes of its half bolt-on line:
- A 4-inch Half Bolt-on with aluminum
- A 4-inch Half Bolt-on with steel/aluminum combo
- A six-inch Half Bolt-on with aluminum.
These new brackets, suitable for 4 and 6-inch fence posts, are designed to dramatically reduce post flexing.
“Our customers needed a larger mounting bracket solution. We brought the same D&D Technologies quality to these three new products as we have with all of the solutions we offer,” said Jim Paterson, D&D’s VP of sales and marketing.
The wider brackets on the Shut It mounts enable anchor points to be positioned at the sides, rather than the center, of the fence post. This delivers increased stability and decreased flexing, which in turn reduces wear and tear on the post. These sturdy brackets, available in both aluminum and steel, can handle gate loads up to 1,000 pounds.
The high-temperature sealed bearings can be powder coated, allowing the brackets to blend in seamlessly. Precision machining makes for nearly frictionless operation and long-term dependability, in all weather conditions.
“Traditional narrow brackets put significant pressure on the fence post,” added Paterson. “These Shut It brackets are designed to offset that load, which makes a huge difference in fatigue, flexing, and durability.”
The new Shut It four-corner mounting brackets have a limited lifetime warranty, require no greasing and no maintenance, and offer bolt and weld installation options.
