We offer a range of kick plates to increase the security and extend the life of your entry doors.
While you may not have heard the term, odds are that you’ve seen a kickplate before. The name kickplate comes from the fact that when people’s hands are occupied, they tend to kick the bottom of a door in order to open it. Repeated kicking will weaken the door, so extra panels are attached to the bottoms of entry doors to reinforce them and increase their durability. Most kickplate panels are made of metal such as stainless steel, aluminum, or brass, but other materials such as vinyl are also available. We at Coastal Contract Hardware offer a full range of kickplates to meet any need.
Kickplates are most commonly seen on the doors of businesses or other public facilities, as the higher level of foot traffic in these spaces increases the risk of damage. However, kickplates are becoming increasingly popular on the doors of private residences as well. Some attribute this change to the increased pace of living in today’s society, as many people are too busy, or at least too stubborn, to pause to put down their handfuls of groceries to open the door with their hands. A kickplate allows you to enter your home without putting your cargo down, while also not having to worry about damaging the door.
Our team at Coastal Contract Hardware is proud to serve the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina community. We want to help you keep your entry doors whole and secure for as long as possible. If you are interested in adding kickplates to the doors of your home or business, call us at Coastal Contract Hardware today.
