Slam preventing door hinges?

GreenDog194July 23, 2012

I have huge doors going in our remodel. Each has a single light -- storefront door style I think it is called, with wood stiles.

OUr house becomes a bit of a wind tunnel with the breezes off the Sound. Doors like to slam or even get tugged out of your hand when the cross breeze starts blowing through the house.

Now if one of these huge glass doors slams, I fear a total explosion of glass (it is tempered glass, however).

Are there hinges (not those over head commercial hydraulics), that help prevent doors from slamming? I'm thinking the equivalent to how drawers now have a "soft close" feature. Does the same exist for doors?

Yes, they are typically found on fire rated doors.I would check with your local lumber yard or google "fire hinges".
