Stop Doors Slamming With Our Door Checks & Dampers

Our new range of Justor door checks are designed to prevent swing and sliding doors slamming shut. The door checks hydraulic damping controls a doors closing speed during the final 10 degrees of closing. The door check also secures the door in its final closed position, preventing wind forces opening the door. Slam Proof stock a range of adjustable door checks for different size doors, also stainless steel versions are available for external doors and mounting accessories for use on sliding doors.

For heavy sliding or automatic doors we supply a range of Weforma door dampers. These adjustable door dampers are available with a spring or magnet return. Also, single acting and double acting versions are available.

Slam Proof Adjustable Speed Pedestrian Gate Closers

The new adjustable speed gate closer has variable hydraulic damping which provides more control over the gates closing speed. By rotating the adjustment collar the gates closing speed can be increased or decreased as desired. The adjustable speed gate closers are suitable for use on a wide range of pedestrian gates and are recommended for use on gates with magnetic locks.

Slam Proof Gate Closers are frequently used on the following gates:

  • Pedestrian gates
  • School gates
  • Industrial doors

Weforma Industrial Shock Absorbers

Weforma industrial shock absorbers provide linear deceleration. A moving mass can be smoothly decelerated and the kinetic energy is converted to thermal energy, protecting equipment from damaging impacts.

Advantages of using Weforma shock absorbers include:
  • Decelerate loads
  • Increase production rate
  • Extend machine life and reduce maintenance costs
  • Reduce noise and vibration

Typical applications for Weforma shock absorbers include:
  • Robotics
  • Semi-conductor Manufacturing
  • Factory Automation
  • Medical Devices
  • Automotive Manufacturing

For large industrial machinery and cranes Weforma manufacture a range of heavy duty shock absorbers, which are custom designed to provide optimum deceleration and the lowest reaction force. 

Typical Applications:
  • Automated Warehouse 
  • Stacker Cranes
  • Heavy Materials Transfer
  • Harbour Container Cranes
  • Swing Bridges
  • Mining Lifts
  • Railway

For more information regarding our range of products or technical assistance selecting a suitable Weforma shock absorber please contact us:

Pool Gate Closers

Slam Proof hydraulic gate closers can be used to securely close pool gates and improve pool safety. Unlike self closing spring hinges the Slam Proof gate closers don't slam the gates shut, but firmly close the gate at a controlled speed which prevents the risk of injury and reduces noise. Slam Proof gate closers can be fitted to commercial or residential pool gates manufactured from steel, wood or vinyl. The popular GC-19-300N is suitable for closing gates up to 1.2m wide and weighing up to 50kg. For larger gates we recommend the GC-22-500N, which is suitable for closing gates weighing up to 100kg. The closing force can be easily reduced using an adjuster tool and mounting brackets are available to simplify installation.

For more information or if you would be interested in distributing our hydraulic pedestrian gate closers in your area, please contact the below email address to discuss further.

Rubber Air Spring Bellows

Slam proof supply a large range of rubber air spring bellows which are ideal for applications requiring a high force single acting actuator with a compact size. Manufactured from fabric reinforced synthetic rubber, the air spring bellow has a long and maintenance-free service life. Air spring bellows are also suitable for vibration isolation applications having very low natural frequencies, typically between 1.5Hz and 3.5Hz.

Below is a list of typical applications for air spring bellows:

  • Scissor lifts
  • Roller tensioning
  • Mechanical handling stop
  • Hopper vibration damping

Shock Absorbers, Buffers & Dampers for Lifts & Elevators

Slam Proof supply a large range of deceleration products designed to improve passenger and freight elevator safety. Below is an overview of the available product groups:

Hydraulic elevator shock absorbers are mounted at the base of an elevator shaft and function as a safety device in the event that the elevator car or counter weight travels past the final stop position. During impact the shock absorber gradually brings the elevator car to rest significantly reducing the forces generated. For lifts and elevators with low impact speeds (less than 1.2 m/s), we offer a range of polyurethane elevator buffers. The durable microcellular construction provides the buffers with a high rate of energy absorption and makes them maintenance free. Elevator shock absorbers and buffers both conform to lift guideline 95/16/EC.

Our hydraulic door dampers are commonly used to decelerate an elevator door before its final position, providing the door with smooth and controlled movement. The door dampers are adjustable which allows the compression speed to be easily set and are available with a spring or magnet return to reset the piston rod. 

Deceleration cylinders can be used to safely control the opening and closing speed of doors and maintenance hatches, as well as limiting swinging and oscillating movements. The deceleration cylinders are adjustable and available with speed control in both directions of travel (compression and extension) or single direction (compression or extension) to suit the application requirements.
