Throughout the past 10 years Glass Hardware Australia has been striving to build the most reliable gate hinging systems the world has ever seen. Our pool fence hinging system was developed in Australia. This isn’t a technology adopted from another application like internal doors.
So, what makes the Polaris hinge such an innovative product? It’s this combination of great design, quality components and extensive testing that makes the Polaris hinge the best on the market. We ensure our hinges are tested to 70,000 soft close cycles. That’s six times more than needed to meet Australian standards. It has one of the longest lifespans of any hinge, which is why we can offer a three-year warranty on our hinges.
The Polaris hinge features soft closing for little fingers. This means no slamming and no loud noises. Each hinge has an adjustable closing speed, and a design built for aesthetics, quick installation and carefree maintenance. So, what does all this untimely mean? In the end it comes down to the safety of your family. This is why you should always ensue your fence installer is using a Polaris hinge.

THE IMPACT OF SOFT CLOSE
The impact of a soft-closing product lies within the psychology and impact of slow-motion on the human brain.
The key lies in whether we can visually track an object. If we see an object, such as a glass gate, moving from place to place, our brain has a chance to see it in varying circumstances which in turn allows us the chance to form a stronger memory of the experience. Slow movements lead to psychophysiological relaxation which results in user comfort and pleasure.
Integrating damping into products such as glass gates, will decrease speed of the gate and bring experience of the product to different level. This is why Polaris Soft Close Hinges features have become so popular and widespread in Australia. A slow moving, Soft-Close Polaris Gate System creates elegance and sophistication and luxury into the user’s home. How do you upgrade your product and bring the customer’s experience to the next level? Always insists on Polaris Soft Close Hinges for every glass gate requirement.
RETROFIT YOUR GATE
Since the inception of the company Glass Hardware Australia has recognised the lack of existing industry support with regards to servicing and retrofitting existing installed gates. Figures show that up to 30% of all self-closing gates do function as intended and require maintenance or complete replacement. More often than not once a gate is installed no additional support is extended whether that be replacement parts, servicing or simply information on how to maintain the product.
Polaris has developed an entire range of RETROFIT PRODUCTS to utilise into existing competitors’ hardware. This not only provides support to the homeowner but eliminates the need for gate replacement and associated labour costs.
