Door Dwell was formed in 1984 and has manufactured the DOORDWELL without interruption, since then.

We are the original Patent and Registered Trade Mark holders and THE ONLY MANUFACTURERS OF: The DOORDWELL which is a delayed action door holder which comprises a simple air bleed sucker device, which is fail safe. It holds open sprung doors for stretchers, wheelchairs, trolleys etc. The time delay before closure is adjustable simply by the turn of a screw. Unlike expensive electro-magnetic devices, which can cost hundreds of pounds per door, the DOORDWELL is simple to fit and inexpensive. Also there is no need to use illegal wedges to keep your door open.


  • The product has been recommended by fire officers because of its simplicity, durability and its fail safe nature.
  • DOORDWELLS are manufactured solely in our Bristol premises so that quality can be assured.
  • We can supply orders directly from stock without undue delay.
  • The main areas of usage are in hospitals, both NHS and private, nursing homes, housing associations and office blocks.
