A business owner in Silver Spring, MD, called MacArthur Locks & Doors and asked if we could help strengthen their commercial entrance door. We advised installing a door push plate to protect their front door from damage and increase the lifespan. The client approved, so we went to their place to inspect the door, then proceeded to install the recommended push plate. The client was impressed with their door's strength after we fitted the stainless steel matt push plate. Due to our affordable and efficient lock and door services, the client ensured to call us whenever they needed more commercial door repair for their workspace.
Your business' front doors take a beating day in and out. They are constantly opened and closed, which can cause early wear and tear. To help extend the life of your doors, consider reinforcing them with a door push plate.
There are many benefits to investing in push plates for your workplace doors. Not only can they add a touch of style, but they can also help protect the doors from damage. Push plates can help prevent dings, scratches, and doors from being forced open too aggressively.
Push plates are specially designed flat pieces of metal or alloy that help to keep the wood from getting damaged when the doors close automatically. They are often seen on swinging doors with a pull handle on one side.
You will likely need a push plate when you need to open a commercial door that is either very heavy or needs to be opened with some force. By applying pressure to the pushing plate, the door will slowly begin to open.
Other benefits of installing push plates on commercial doors include making them easier to open and giving a surface that is easy to grip. They can be installed on both swinging or push sides of one-directional doors. One-directional doors can feature a pull handle on one side and a push plate on the opposite side.
Commercial doors are prone to earlier wear and tear from being opened and closed multiple times daily. As a result, it can cause blemishes on the door's surface. Over time, these blemishes can turn into damage. Push plates offer protection from this type of damage by providing a stable surface to push against when opening a door, therefore preventing you from touching and pushing the door directly.
A push plate can help reduce the amount of contact you have to make with a door in your workplace, minimizing the spread of viruses and germs. Of course, you will still need to push the door open, but you can touch the push plate instead of the door itself. The market offers door push plates with antibacterial or antimicrobial finishes. This will help inhibit the growth of bacteria, germs, and mold. As a result, it can help reduce the spread of many illnesses and viruses, including Covid-19, and keep your workplace more safe.
Many types of push plates are available on the market, each made from different materials. Copper is a strong and durable option that also has a stylish look. In addition, it is easy to maintain, making it a popular choice.
There is a range of sizes available for commercial door plates. The most common shape is rectangular, but it comes in all shapes and sizes. You will have to make sure you choose a size appropriate for the doors you intend to use them on. If you need help choosing the best one for your space, a commercial locksmith can assist you.
All push plates are installed with threaded fasteners. To install, drive the threaded fasteners through the push plate and into the door behind it. The number of required fasteners varies by push plate design. For example, a push plate with four threaded holes will require four threaded fasteners, whereas a push plate with six threaded holes will require six threaded fasteners.
