I’m going to be a bit politically incorrect here but here goes anyway.
I need to invent a system that stops the door being opened at high speed and bouncing off the end stops (thank god it was not windy). I spent last weekend ferrying the wife’s mum and her pals (they were are between 70 and 80 years old) around and I noticed that:
1. They have hidden strength when it comes to pushing a door open.
2. They use the same energy reserves when it comes to closing the door.
I think they thought I was being quite chivalrous by opening and closing the doors at the end of the day but it was actually self preservation.
You would think that some kind of damping could be introduced when a door is getting near the end of travel.
Anyway I’m probably going to hell now and I will probably be assimilated into this technique when I start to like grey and tan colours and slip on shoes
