Door stop

Post by mole81 » Sat Oct 27, 2018 10:34 am

What is the standard size for door stop? My current ones are 10x46 (with layers of paint!) and struggling to find this to replace a section?

Could you not just buy some slightly bigger and trim to size?

Be careful what you ask for..... A "door stop" means something different to an ironmonger (and for that matter most joiners I know) in this area. The term we use up here is "stop lath" (often pronounced "stop latt) whilst in the Midlands I believe they call them "banging strips".... Ask for a door stop in a local merchants in Manchester and you'll probably end up having a bit of a four candles moment...

The weegies call them door checks up here but the rest of the country call them stops.
We call door linings door standards as well.

ask for a door stop set [2 legs and a head]and they will probably give you a 3m and a 2.1 length
