What is a sliding door stop called?

Sliding Door Stops

Sliding doors have a door stop commonly called an end stop. These door stops prevent sliding doors from hitting the wall. A steel bumper is used to stop the door and prevent it from sliding off track. Sliding glass doors often have a rubber stop that lines the length of the door frame for a soft halt from the sliding motion.
