Why use kick plates?
Kick plates are not only important in homes with children and animals running around, but they are also very useful in an office setting where people and office furniture is likely to be moved around frequently. With this kind of traffic, there is always the risk that something will bump into the wall and mark it or, even worse, cause damage that requires extensive repair at cost and time to the company.
Pick the right type of material for your next kick plate
The material that the kick plate is made of is very important, as this will be the factor that decides whether the plate will absorb impact or not. Aluminum and stainless steel are both popular materials for kick plates as they provide premium protection while still being lightweight enough to mount to most door types. This kind of material is also fairly cheap to produce, meaning the savings can be passed on to the customer in the form of lower selling prices.
