Door Bumpers: MDI Products in Action

Posted on March 30, 2018 by The Molded Dimensions Team

Often going unnoticed, door bumpers are important at work and in your home to protect your walls from dings and dents caused by doorknobs. Today, we’re talking about the features our door bumpers have that make them stand out from the competition.

  • Material Compound: These bumpers are made with 35 Durometer Shore A grade elastomer. It also features a fastener chemically bonded to the SBR elastomer for easy attachment to equipment.
  • Impact Resistance: The impact or shock resistance of an elastomer is determined by striking a sample with a swinging pendulum (hammer). The sample is placed at the lowest point of the arc traveled by the pendulum head. Measuring the difference in the distance of the upswing of the pendulum after the impact, compared to the same upswing with nothing in its path, determines the energy in breaking the sample which is the measure of impact strength.
  • Non-marking Grey Color: The material and its impact resistance keep the bumper from making any marks on the door or wall, and its grey color keeps it hidden from view.
