How often do you think about the door stops at your facility? They may often be overlooked, but they are an essential part of the day-to-day job of any maintenance team.
Door stops can be very important for the safety of your maintenance team. We often see heavy objects, such as a rock or cinder block, used to prop open doors. With this method, a person who is likely carrying a heavy object already has to put down that object and prop open the door. Not only is this inconvenient, it creates a safety hazard, as the object could cause someone to trip and fall.
Door Stop Construction and Features:
Our door stops are constructed of solid brass and feature a spring design to hold the stop in position when not in use. They come in a variety of finishes. The rubber on the foot of the door stop holds the stop in place while in use.
• Install with the door open to make sure the rubber foot is properly fitted to the area of floor where it will be used.
• When using these door stops on a door that is not wood, be sure to use screws compatible with the material of the door.
• Choose the correct size door stop based on how much clearance is underneath your door. The more clearance, the large stop you’ll need.
Benefits of Brass
- Brass is durable. A brass door stop will hold up to years of use and abuse.
- Brass is resistant to corrosion. It will not rust, even under harsh outdoor conditions.
- Brass is aesthetically pleasing. We carry a variety of finishes, from dull chrome to polished brass, to fit in with the look of your building, no matter what style is has.
- Brass is easy to maintain. We all know that door stops are most commonly operated by foot. The best way to clean the grime off a brass stop is to simply wipe it down with a wet cloth.
