Door Slamming one solution - 05-07-2006, 01:26 PM

Hi,

It's recently been brought to my attention that one can put these round discs (rubber bumpers or stoppers) on the door frame which helps mitigate the sound of the door slamming. I haven't investigated this myself but it sounds like a good idea.

Cheers, m'snot

Hi m'snot - Thank you for the information on the rubber disks. If you do find out more, like where one can purchase them, I'd sure be interested. Maybe it's something Penn South can install in all doors. Though I doubt they would. I'll be on the look out for them.

HEHEHE

I just had a thought. If we could find them, most likely at a hardware store, we could ring our neighbors and casually place them on their doorframes during the conversation.

Am I evil?

Evil or not, I like the idea. Since I think the neighbor would notice this move, I think one should bake a cake!

Here's how to get two birds with one stone to: (1) Muffle the sound of slamming doors and (2) Stop drafts (and menu's) from entering around the perimeter of the door. Call Penn South?s Maintenance (212-675-8181) and tell them air drafts are coming into your apartment around the door frame. Maintenance will install narrow felt strips with a sticky backing around the door frame so that the door?s two sides and its top will make contact with that stripping. I believe there is no charge for this. There is available a metal and rubber strip for the bottom of the door, for a charge. A Wednesday evening appointment might be available for Maintenance to do the installation.

Of course your noisy neighbor(s) will have to be persuaded to have this done.

Thank you North Star for your suggestion to help muffle door slamming. I set up an appointment to get the felt strips for the door frame and a metal strip for the bottom of the door. Maintenance charges $10 for the metal strip. They begin work on our new elevators next week and hope this will help with dust and make closing a door a quieter affair. Maybe my neighbors will be interested! Thanks again.

my door was closing loudly (slamming) for years. until a guy from maintenance came to fix something else, and he noticed the door was loud and hard to close because something was off. it took him 15 seconds to fix. I've had a lot of maintenance guys here over the years, no one mentioned the door or offered to fix it.

I share a wall with a very annoying neighbor who lets his door slam. I've tried many times to tell him to just hold the doorknob until the door closes but this has been going on for too long now for me to hold my anger. I like his wife so I don't want to get involved in a feud, but I hate the husband. Actually, hate is too mild to describe how I feel about this nut. To make matters worse, he's retired and he leaves and returns so many times a day that one morning from 8AM until noon when I left I had already counted over a dozen slams. Do I report this to Maintenance and ask them to put something on their door? Do I then have to make arrangements with these neighbors for them to be home? How do I handle this?
