The Australian design and manufacturing company that invented MagnaLatch® magnetic gate latches and TruClose® polymer gate hinges, D&D Technologies, has announced the release of its SureClose® READYFIT 180-degree-opening gate hinges and closers.
The commercial-style, hydraulic SureClose READYFIT ‘180’ has been added to the existing range of SureClose® products to offer yet another heavy duty gate hinge and/or closer option, notably one that offers convenient 180-degree gate opening.
Compact SureClose® products are designed to replace bulky, mechanical gate hinging and closing solutions. These strong and sturdy hinge-closers provide smooth, bind-free performance.
Superb engineering and patented design allow clever concealment of the hydraulics in a remarkably small housing.
As its name suggests, SureClose READYFIT ‘180’ model provides 180˚ opening and closing, making it convenient for high-traffic gate applications.
There’s no compromise of quality with these small-footprint closers and hinges.
Each externally mountable READYFIT model lives up to its name by providing convenient screw slots and holes for sturdy fixing.
25mmx12g self-drilling Tek screws are supplied. The slots allow fine vertical adjustment for speedy gate alignment.
Horizontal adjustment is attained by way of a built-in, adjustable locking ring that rotates in or out, as required, to ensure the gate is level and overall alignment is achieved.
It’s remarkably simple operation for a commercial-style gate closer product. All SureClose® housings are made of high-grade aluminium.
Optional, L-shaped steel mounting brackets can either be welded or fastened to appropriate gate frames and posts.
