Where To Buy
Common Gate Components:
Fence Post - Vertical support from which the hinge and gate hangs. The post also attaches to the fence panel.
Gate Upright - Vertical part of the gate where you mount the hinge arm. Size varies based upon the dimension and style of the gate.
Gate Width and Weight - Width is the horizontal measurement of the gate. This measurement, along with the weight of the gate, will determine the load capacity your hinge can support.
Gate Material - Common gate materials include wood, vinyl, aluminum and steel.
All of the Boerboel products go through rigorous testing to make sure they support our Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Testing Type One
Any of our hinges that offer manual or self-closing options must go through and surpass 10-year full-cycle testing with 5 openings and closures a day. A cycle is defined as a full open/close segment; this testing duplicates, in accelerated form, the use a customer would subject the product to in the average lifetime of the product. To ensure endurance and performance under normal and maximum conditions of usage, the hinges are tested in various stages and under different conditions, from temperature variants to degree of closure. We also have products being tested and monitored in the field.
Testing Type Two
All of our Boerboel gate solutions go through industry standard ASTM B117 Salt Spray testing and surpass to support our limited lifetime warranty. B117 is the standard for testing corrosion resistance. We simulate exposure to a corrosive environment such as a seaside location, testing for variables such as salt, temperature, and humidity. In general, 1000 hours equates to 15 years of generic environmental exposure.
