Door stops are ingenious devices designed to hold doors in place, preventing them from accidentally closing or opening too far. They are typically made from durable materials such as rubber, metal, or plastic, ensuring their longevity and effectiveness. Regardless of the type you choose, all door stops share the common goal of providing convenience and safety within your living space.
The Half Moon door stop, as its name suggests, has a half-moon shape. This type of door stop is particularly popular due to its versatile nature. It can be placed either on the floor or on the wall, depending on your needs. The Half Moon door stop prevents the door from accidentally being blown/pushed open, protecting your walls, furniture, and belongings from damage. With its simple yet effective design, the Half Moon door stop offers flexibility and convenience, making it a popular choice among homeowners.
Another type of door stop we offer is the Wall Mount door stop. This door stop is specifically designed to be mounted on the wall, providing excellent 'wall protecting' capabilities while offering floor clearance. Unlike the floor-mounted Half Moon, the Wall Mount door stop doesn't take up any floor space, making it an ideal choice for small or crowded rooms. The Wall Mount door stop can be mounted at varying heights to accommodate different door thicknesses or flooring types. Its stylish and discreet design ensures that it seamlessly blends into any room décor, offering practicality without sacrificing aesthetics. Perfect for skirting boards or directly onto the wall where possible.
The third type of door stop we offer is the Magnetic door stop. This innovative door stop utilizes the power of rare earth magnets to securely hold a door in place. The Magnetic door stop consists of two parts: a magnetic catch attached to the wall or floor and a metal plate affixed to the bottom of the door. When the door is open, the metal plate is magnetically attracted to the catch, creating a strong bond. This type of door stop is ideal for when you want to keep your door open without the need for manual adjustment.
One of the greatest advantages of door stops, regardless of their type, is the prevention of door-related accidents. Doors that are left unattended can blow open to drafts, sudden gusts of wind, or even pets running by. Such incidents can lead to injuries, damaged property, or even shattered glass if the door has a window panel. Door stops provide a simple and effective solution to avoid such accidents. By preventing doors from slamming shut, they eliminate the risk of fingers getting trapped, prevent damage to adjacent objects, and maintain a safer living environment for everyone, especially children and the elderly.
Available in various finishes, our door stops carry the quality assurance of the Manovella brand.
