Whenever you attach magnets to a product, the credibility and the utility of the product increases greatly. A door stopper which is primarily used for preventing doors from slamming shut due to heavy winds or stopping them from being closed by door closers increases its significance greatly when magnets are integrated with them.
Swinging the doors and not worrying about them being slammed to the wall can only be attained by installing magnetic door stops.
Types of Magnetic Door Stoppers
There are generally two types of magnetic door stoppers. Floor mounted and wall-mounted.
Floor-mounted Magnetic Door Stoppers
Floor mounted magnetic door stoppers are less visible and provide an excellent utility to those who don’t have a wall nearby. The major problem that arises with these stoppers is that if they aren’t installed properly, you can trip or stumble due to less visibility.

You should keep in mind that magnetic door stoppers need to be drilled. So, you cannot install them on a ceramic tile or plastic flooring. You need to make sure that magnetic door stoppers are installed either on wooden surfaces or concrete surfaces.
If a magnetic door stopper is installed at the wrong place (far from the magnet) then the magnet won’t be able to hold the door from closing. To prevent that from happening you need to mark the optimum place.
Magnetic door stoppers aren’t intended for robust usage. Using a magnetic door stopper to keep a door (with a door closer) held open can damage the magnet and as well as prove to be inefficient.
