is Positive Force Gate Closing System?
Positive Force Gate Closing System provides a reliable closing
pressure from start to finish. Its innovatice design is ideal
for retrofitting or new construction, on wrought iron, round
tube, or chain link gates.
Positive Force Gate Closing System is designed to use a U.L.
approved overhead concealed door closer. The closer is placed
inside our patented metal housings which is welded to the
top of the hinge post. Another housing is welded to the top
of the gate, which holds an adjustable arm that attaches the
gate and fence together. The bottom of the gate is secured
by a housing that holds a pivot bearing and attaches to the
fence post. The gate is controlled without hinges or springs,
allowing the gate to open and close with a controlled pressure
from 5 to 15 pounds, depending on which closer is utilized.
By maintaining constant pressure it allows improved latching
ability and lessens noise complaints from slamming gates.
It also improves the longevity of the lock hardware with its
slow and smooth closing.
The gate can also open in both directions if not being used
as a swimming pool or security gate, thus making it ideal
for use on gates for side yards, backyards and various other
The gate is limited to about 105 degrees opening distance.
It is recommended that a physical stop be installed to restrict
how far the gate can open; failure to adhere to this could
result in the need of replacing the adjustable arm.
