Hollow core - Lightweight doors need an easy, light weight solution to stop their slamming. If you desire a gentle close without a slam, you'll want our SoftSlam - Light.

The use of a SoftSlam light in these doors would be nearly unnoticeable though would still help mitigate door injuries and door damages due to vibrations.

Customer Testimonial -
Funny Story - We chanced upon Nick checking on his install at Signature Homes while walking our puppy. He struck up a conversation about SoftSlam. We were so sick of our garage door slamming. I was about to run to the store to buy something for it. He offered to do the install for free so, yeah. I think SoftSlam is as important as smoke detectors for keeping your home safe. - Charlie and Cassandra
