Glass gates around pools cannot slam, but they must be able to close automatically in order to comply with building codes. US Glass Fence uses self-closing hinges designed and built by Polaris Hinge Co. in Australia. This type of hinge closes a gate gently without slamming, and a magnetic latch clicks into place to keep it shut.
The Polaris Soft Close Hinge uses a spring, high-powered magnets, and shock absorbers to make a gate close every time from any position, from fully to only slightly open. A gate is guaranteed to close lightly and quietly every time.
The Polaris Soft Close Hinge was designed to meet the stringent requirements related to frameless glass pool fencing in Australia. The hinge can be employed in any setting where a glass door or gate is used, either outdoors or indoors.
The hinge was designed to resist damage that could be caused by chemicals. It can function in a wet environment, making it ideal for use near a pool. It can stand up to constant outdoor use and was made to withstand the harsh weather typical of Australia.
The Polaris Soft Close Hinge is durable and reliable and can last 10 years or longer. It is designed to support the weight of tempered glass. The hinge is easy to install and eliminates the need for in-ground hardware. It has a sleek, minimalist design that makes it stylish and attractive.
The Polaris Soft Close Hinge makes frameless glass fencing safe to use around a pool. Since the gate closes automatically, you can be sure that young children will not be able to get access to your pool without your knowledge. This can give you peace of mind knowing that your family is safe. The hinge has been endorsed by Australian organizations committed to preventing child drownings.
