Use Door Kick Plates For Commercial And Personal Benefits There are lots of advantages to having a door kick plate for ones business or home doors and when you are looking for the most appropriate one to match your needs, you might be curious about the various advantages, kinds, and materials of kick plates. Swinging doors are a good example of where a kick plate is necessary along with door push plates since they will protect the door in addition to adding a design that'll add to the room. Basically a door kick plate is a metal guard that is used to protect the bottom part of your doors when people kick it open. You can typically see them on restaurant doors going from the kitchen into the restaurant because most waitresses hands are full so they will have to kick or push the door open using their foot. However in commercial settings, don't assume all the damage to doors is from someone kicking open the door. For example, often times the door to a restroom or another part of a store is opened with a cart or stroller. Kick plates come in very handy in homes as well, because they can protect your door from such things as toys, pets, kids, or things running into the door causing damage. Plus, the kick plates can also add a bit of beauty to any door in your home and can be customized to complement any kind of style in your house. The door kick plates are available in a variety of colors and styles, but ones that are rectangle in shape and metallic grey are the most commonly purchased. As kick plates become a little more popular in the private sector you will also find more available options such as clear or colored plastic and brass. Children's bedrooms may be a great spot to invest in a clear plastic variety, especially if you have had the door painted because you will still be able to protect the door while allowing the decorations or color to still show. A lot of kick plate manufacturers will custom build the kick plate to the proper size and charge you based on the size of the finished product. This can help you look for the composition of the plate more than for the size and will suggest that you don’t have to decide on a material that you might not want, just because your door is not a standard shape or size. A door plate will often be manufactured from hard plastic, anodized or gold aluminum, brushed or polished stainless steel, and brass. The color of the kick plate will often be determined by the material used to make it, but you can also purchase colored plastic plates or find materials at a craft store to alter your kick plate once you purchase it. The material that you will have to use for your kick plate will often depend upon aesthetic factors such as the materials used for other fixtures and the kinds of materials that you like. You will also want to take into consideration the fact that kick plates will start to show damage eventually and some materials will stay aesthetically pleasing for longer than others due to the sturdiness of the material and the finish on it. As an example, a clear plastic plate will look cloudy much quicker than some of the colored plastic kick plates.
