Have you ever used an old computer tower as a doorstop? How about the shoe off your foot. There are many items that may seem like good substitutes for a doorstop like the photos above, but our revolutionary design offers a simple-to- use doorstop solution that enables more safe and efficient work.
Using a rubber mat, which is designed to prevent slipping, to hold open a door at your workplace is a great way for employees, customers or even the UPS guy to get seriously hurt. Can you say lawsuit? According to statistics from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), slips and trips are the single most common cause of injuries at work, and account for over a third of all major work injuries. Propping the door open to a 90 degree angle allows for better access in and out of the doorway. Using the DoorPRO Doorstop on the middle hinge keeps the bottom free and clear with no object to trip over and prevents damage to the surface of the door.
