Fabulous, no more slamming! I can now open my doors with no fear of the door slamming when the wind decides to blow hard. Wonderful invention. I am stoked. - Jualane Rapson

Hand injuries and noise are serious issues with doors. Injuries directly attributable to doors cost New Zealand more than $23 million / year. Noise from doors slamming cost hotels when patrons leave poor reviews. Hospitals, day cares centres, nursing homes, schools, and many other businesses suffer through loss of healing sleep and loss of concentration resulting in lower productivity and irritated workers.
SoftSlam is designed for the personal door whether it is on the home front or a hotel, office, or quaint shop. Discreet enough to use in a historic building, it is rugged enough to use at a school.
