Prevent Doors from Slamming Shut
One of the most refreshing parts of summer is opening all the windows in the house and enjoying the air. After months of breathing stuffy, dry, furnace-conditioned heat, fresh air is revitalizing and invigorating. An opening up of the house to change the air every once in a while is also beneficial to the health. But on breezier days, those gusts blowing through the house can have a more direct effect, in the form of wind-whipped doors being violently slammed into frames, walls, or even people.
Aside from the startling noise of a slamming door, their movement can also be a hazard to people in or around the doorway. Foam children safety stoppers are one easy and cheap way to prevent the sudden slamming of doors while enjoying your day with the windows open. They are soft enough to cushion the impact of a door flying into its frame without damage and large enough to silently absorb the impact. Sculpted rigid foam sheet safety products like stoppers can also keep tiny fingers from getting pinched in a closing door or swinging into children who are focused on other things. These slide-on forms are easily removed when a door needs to be shut or there isn’t a chance of it slamming, and can be placed anywhere along the door’s edge to keep them out of reach of children or pets who may think they’re a squishy toy.
Door stoppers are also there to protect the room itself, as a gust of wind can quickly manifest itself in the form of a doorknob-sized hole in the wall. Repetitive slamming is able to damage a door jamb or even crack the door itself. With a foam door stopper, if a breeze catches a door, it’ll gently and silently bump into the wall or frame, padding impact and eliminating damage.
Things like stairway fences and bumper pole pads are commonly used as precautionary safety products in the home, but door stoppers offer an easy solution to a problem that often goes unnoticed until it’s too late.
