As the name suggests, these hinges are soft closing. They are made from premium 2205 stainless steel which is strong and corrosion resistant. The hinge is modern and looks great with its smooth curved front and rear design.

It is the newest designed hinge available and a perfect match to any pool fence gate. Unlike the other hinges in the market, this hinge does not require maintenance which is a major advantage to you. It also features a stronger spring and dampening, and a market leading five year warranty, so you can rest assured that you are getting best product possible.

Spring hinges

These are general pressed from 316 SS which is a much lower quality material. lts strength and corrosion-resistance is less than half of the premium 2205 SS. The appearance is also poorer due to sharp pressed edges and cheap design .
