What is a Gate Closer?
A gate closer, such as the Locinox Samson2 hydraulic gate closer, is a self-closing mechanism that closes a gate at a controlled speed. Once the gate closer has been installed, it’s possible to easily open the gate by hand, and when you release the gate, it closes at a safe speed.
One of the greatest benefits of a Locinox gate closer is that they’re easy to install on new or pre-existing gates. And it’s not necessary to change the hinges or mount an expensive closing device.
In addition, the Locinox gate closer provides security and safety for residential and commercial properties. The gate closer’s closing speed and force are also adjustable when fitting the gate closers. This makes the gate closers usable on many types of gates and in different situations, including pedestrian gates, garden gates, nursery & playground areas, residential properties, and more.
