An overhead stop is a type of door stop that is mounted at the top of a door. It can be surface-mounted to the face of the door or concealed in the head of the door. They can operate effectively by sliding along a track or rod and stopping when it reaches the end of the track. The overhead holder and stop are generally out of the way, while floor or wall-mounted stops can be a stumbling hazard and are vulnerable to damage.
While the overhead door stop can be effective, choosing the correct size can be complicated. For example, some overhead door stop makers provide as many as 32 specification pages related to size requirements. Additionally, they tend to lead to installation issues, high costs, compatibility problems, and maintenance challenges.
A New Type Of Overhead Door Stop
Waterson Closer Hinges, on the other hand, provide a highly effective and fully integrated door stopping mechanism that easily sidesteps the problems associated with typical overhead door stops. Waterson hinges combine self-closing, hold open and door stop features into a sleek stainless steel device that is far superior and cost-effective than overhead door stops.
Waterson Combines Hold Open
The hold-open feature stops doors in place exclusively at 90 degrees. When you open doors with Waterson hinges to 90 degrees they will stay at that position without moving. Doors are free to move beyond 90 degrees, however once passed perpendicular, they will self-close.
