Door edge protection from garage wall

I just found a few carpet cut-offs and nailed them to the wall next to my door and in front of the nose. May not look at good but certainly does the trick!

:yeah:
 
Yep, as above, old carpets all the way. I have a challengingly narrow rental garage and the cut off carpets are the practical answer.
 
My solution is 15mm pipe insulation cut lengthways and glued to the wall with Gorilla glue (inset photo). If I were to do it again, I'd use 2 rows of the thicker grade of 22mm insulation.

Afternoon

My garage is a reasonable width but would prefer some physical protection applied to the garage wall to prevent d
Chipping the door edge.

I have found some self adhesive rubber stuff on Amazon which will do the trick but wondered if any of you have found something nicer?

This looks easy to apply / remove.

Yeah I used a roll of cheap carpet the whole length of the garage wall both sides :thumb:
 
Food for thought, looks like a trip to the local carpet shop/wilko is in order!

I wonder if the carpet shop will give me a "sample" :?:
