What types of door stops are available?
The types of door stops that are most common break down into two distinct categories. Floor mounted door stops or wall door stops.
How easy is it to fit these door stops?
These are simple products that can be quickly and easily installed although there are some important factors you need to assess beforehand, for example, where exactly do you want to position the door stop and then how strong the fixing will be to the wall or floor.
Do you provide fixings with the door stops?
We do provide some generic fixings for these products but as in the previous question you will need to assess the substrate and how well the fixings will hold. In some cases you may need to purchase specialist fixings used for hollow walls as some types of door stops are more tricky to fit.
Are there different sizes available?
You can get different sizes with some of the door stops and this will give you more scope to overcome problems like door handle depth. The maximum length is 70mm.
How heavy duty are these door stops?
General use around the home is the usual application for all of our door stops. If you have a more specific commercial need then contact our technical team through the contact pages. Heavy duty door stops can be used for patio doors where a much sturdier and heavier stop is needed.
Can anyone fit the standard types of door stops?
Yes as long as you are comfortable with a drill then most 'diyers' are able to fit these products comfortably.
Are these stops for internal or external use?
They are mostly for internal use. If you have a need for an exterior door stop then consider stainless steel door stops or refer to other types of door restrictors.
