It can be used where a floor mounted doorstop might be considered a trip hazard, or where the bottom of the door is considerably higher than ground level making it infeasible to fit a floor mounted doorstop, such as the Durham Pattern door buffers above. Or it can be used where a door stay or door closer is not desired. Depending on the frame detail, it may also be fitted to the door frame.
The ZLP is manufactured from 4mm thick zinc plated mild steel so is suitable for external use. Standard finish is silver grey paint finish (-SIL). It is also available in Grade 304 stainless steel (-SS). It is supplied complete with a 35mm diameter black rubber buffer (Z035) which is bolted in place. The bracket is drilled four times with 6mm holes countersunk for No.12 screws (not supplied). Care is required when specifying this product as its fixing position close to the hinge axis can create a fulcrum when the door comes into contact with it, especially with heavy doors in windy locations. In these situations, a heavier duty doorstop or door stay should be used.
