Hey guys I have an interesting question. At my place of business we have 8 doors that have ball bearing hinges and slam quite loud. I have put some vinyl bumpers on the frame and it helped slightly but still getting a lot of complaints about them.

My first thought was just to put a door closer device on each door. However these doors do not have an a frame above the door. There is a track that goes over the top of the doors for a lift system. So there is no way to attach a traditional door closer. Really what i was wanting was a soft close device like you see on cabinets now. The device that catches the door just before it hits and slows it down for an easy closure.

My question is do you guys think something like this will handle the closing force of a full size bathroom door?
