Stainless Steel Stretcher Plates: Stretcher Plates are a hygienic surface used in hospitals to protect the door during patient transport from moving beds, gurneys and equipment between wards and other functional rooms. Stretcher plates can mounted at the center line of the lock to the center line of the plate. The plates can specially punched at out shop for the lock hole. SSTL Stretcher Plates can be used as a protection plate surface for hand traffic as an easily maintained stainless steel surface.
Size Range: 5" to 21" Height, 18" to 48" Length. The Grain Direction of the #4 Polished Stainless Runs the Length of the Stretcher Plates.
Our SSTL Stretcher 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 Stretcher Plate.
Stretcher Plates can be mounted below the lock set or mounted under the lock set at the center line of the lock and or door handle aligned to the center of the plate. For this application the customer supplies their dimensions to us and we custom fabricate the hole to fit the lock set.
