The self-closer

Self-closing gate

  • The gate should self-close when open 150 mm to fully open
  • To check this, hold your gate open with a 150 mm gap and the gate should close and latch
  • A self-closing hinge is in the photo
  • Ensure that these hinges are at least 900 mm apart as they can create a toe hold point
  • Special non-climbable tops which do comply can be purchased if they are positioned closer than 900 mm apart.
