door stop: Different models and their advantages  

Doors are among the most fundamental components in buildings. They provide privacy, separate different spaces and serve as an essential design element. To ensure that doors continue to function perfectly, look beautiful and are not damaged over many years, they must be protected against knocks and accidental slamming. Door stops are perfect for this. In this article, you will find out what types of door stops are available and their advantages.

Door stops protect doors from damage, while also protect hinges from wear. They can be used to prevent unintentional impacts on surrounding objects or walls and sudden door slams. This helps to ensure that doors remain fully functional over a long period of time and do not suffer scratches or other damage.

Doorstop on the floor

There are two different variants of floor-mounted door stops. Firstly, stoppers are available that are firmly anchored in the floor and secondly, there are stops that can be positioned in front of the door whenever they are needed.

Door stops that are firmly anchored to the floor have the advantage of protecting both the door and walls or other objects from damage. The stops are mounted in such a way that it is impossible for the door to touch surrounding surfaces. They therefore provide reliable protection against damage. The opening angle of the door leaf can also be adjusted as required using firmly anchored door stops on the floor. This makes it possible to ease the strain on the hinges. However, it is not possible to drill the stopper into the floor if underfloor heating is installed in the floor. In this case, you should opt for a different model.

With their matt-finished stainless steel or polyamide appearance, our floor door stops blend into a wide variety of interior design concepts - whether in a heavily frequented office building or as protection in private housing They have a spring-loaded, black elastic buffer as well as a concealed screw connection and are also theft-protected.

Mobile door stops, on the other hand, can be used wherever they are needed. They are particularly useful when there is draught ventilation in summer and doors can be easily secured with their weight. This prevents doors from slamming shut unintentionally. However, the flexible stoppers are also a suitable solution when the front doors of shops need to be kept open temporarily to welcome customers. These stops have the advantage that they can be easily placed in other locations. Variants with a rubber coating on the underside of the damper also prevent slipping.

Door stop models that can be attached to the wall prevent damage if the door slips out of the hand or is opened carelessly. The advantage of these variants is that they can be installed at any desired height. The distance between door and wall increases depending on the thickness of the model

The HEWI wall-mounted door stops are characterised by their anti-theft protection and concealed screw connection. Round and angular versions in satin stainless steel as well as a round damper made of polyamideare available.

An uncomplicated and reliable way to protect a door from damage caused by collisions with other objects and walls is to use door stops on the door. The stickers are installed directly on the door handle and thus cushion shocks. Due to their small size, they are hardly noticeable. The stop is even more inconspicuous if you opt for the transparent version.. The advantage of this model is that the door can be opened with a maximum opening angle.
