Stainless Steel Armor Plates: Armor Plates protect the lower half of doors from abuse by pushcarts, handcarts, hand trucks, wheel chairs, and other accessible equipment. Our 16 ga SSTL is ideal for rough usage. These are applied to the push side of single doors and both sides of double acting doors. Armor Plates accommodate a wide range of users.
Size Ranges: 22" to 48" Height, 18" to 48" Length. The Grain Direction of the #4 Polished Stainless Runs the Length of the Armor Plates.
Our SSTL Armor Plates #4 Brushed Satin Polish matches US32D Door Hardware Finishes.
The correct fit for your Stretcher Plate should be 2" shorter than the width of your door, which gives one inch allowance on each side. That way it clears your door trim and any weather-stripping. If your Door is 36" the correct size to order is a 34" long Armor Plate.
Our Armor Plates can eliminate the need for a separate door stretcher and kick plate altogether. Armor Plates can also be mounted under the lock set and span to the bottom of door. For this application the customer supplies their dimensions to us and we custom fabricate the hole to fit the lock set.
Since WE ARE the MANUFACTURER every little detail matters to us. Unlike Stainless Steel Door Armor Plate "suppliers" "distributors" and "reseller Brokers" who drop ship to you "From the Manufacturer", WE ship it right from our own shop where we actually make your Kick Plates. With us there are no delays or waiting on third party Broker sellers to fit you on their multiple manufactures schedules. As the MANUFACTURER We have complete control from material procurement, quality control stops at every operation, packaging and shipping.
