Hinged On Success

Feb 28, 2022 | Industry News

Polaris is delighted to introduce its new soft-close hinge, the Polaris Retrofit 155. Since its inception, Polaris has garnered a pristine reputation for providing unparalleled glass pool gate solutions that continue to set the benchmark for reliability, safety and performance. Standing as a testament to the calibre of this product, Polaris was awarded the prestigious International Design Mark Award in both 2010 and 2016 for its soft-close hinges. These awards were judged on innovation, visual and emotional appeal, functionality, quality, usability and environmental sustainability, all factors in which the Polaris Retrofit 155 excels.

Developed by Glass Hardware Australia, the soft-close gate hinge has withstood rigorous testing prior to hitting the market. These soft-close hinges were specifically engineered to be incredibly durable and reliable, withstanding harsh pool chemicals and the volatile outdoor conditions. With ongoing technical support and a three-year warranty offered on all its products, you can rest assured knowing that you will be supported by Polaris regardless of what the Australian outdoors throws your way.

The Retrofit 155 shares many attributes with its soft-close predecessors and relies on pioneering shock and spring absorbers that ensure a ‘soft-close’ every time, no matter the gate’s positioning, thereby reducing the stress on your fencing and increasing its longevity. However, the true beauty of the Retrofit 155 lies in its affordability, accessibility, and versatility.

The Retrofit 155 is designed to assimilate perfectly with existing 8mm or 10mm glass gates with slamming spring hinges – making it compatible with most competitors’ glass gate hinges. Installation is easy and can be carried out by either the Polaris professionals or yourself within a short timeframe using simple and readily available tools. Polaris understands that your family’s safety is paramount, which is why its products are thoroughly tested and constructed from the best materials available. Employing sleek stainless steel and premium manufacturing principles, the hinge remains strong, durable and silent in operation, while its minimalistic appearance allows it to seamlessly integrate into your pool’s existing framework without detracting from its visual appeal.
