Who would use kick plates?
In busy environments, doors are often used constantly. Settings such as hospitals and supermarkets will often see hundreds of people pass through the doors each day, and over time this will cause wear and tear on the hinges, handles and surface area. One of the biggest causes of damage is from people using their feet or trolleys to push open the door, which is why kick plates should be used in this situation.
How do kick plates work?
The concept of door kick plates is simple; it is a sheet of durable material which covers the bottom portion of the door to absorb the impact from people kicking and pushing the door open. The material itself is hard to scuff or dent, and the door’s structural integrity is not compromised by hard use. The plates can be attached in seconds with a few screws, and can extend the life of the door significantly.
