Push and pull plates provide protection for institutional, commercial, and residential doors. At a glance, the door’s surface is the first thing that greets visitors. Without protection, the door will show the obvious signs of wear and tear, such as scratches and peeling paint. However, Koffler push and pull plates improves the appearance of both interior and exterior doors, this helps the door to last longer.
Koffler offers a selection of push and plates, in finishes that complement all types of doors including metal and wood. This is beneficial for customers who need to protect doors in high traffic environments. It is essential to shield the door in areas where hands are placed frequently to open and close the door. The reasoning behind push and pull plates is practical simplicity. Whenever push and pull plates are installed on an exterior door, guests, and visitors can enter or exit the building or home, and there is no need for concern or worry about them damaging the beauty of the door.
In an effort to appeal to businesses of all sizes, Koffler makes certain that there is an array of available inventory the stainless steel, classic bronze, polished brass and satin nickel choices; this helps customers to find the right type of finish. Obviously, the finish is more important to commercial establishments because of the large volume of visitors.
For example, our lacquer finish is excellent for commercial or institutional metal doors, the lacquer finish is available for drilled only, this means that the holes for the push and pull plates installation must match up with the exit or entrance device. Not all push and pull plates, require drilled holes for installation, adhesive installation offers the same benefits. Drilled or undrilled holes, it does not make any difference in the level of protection that is provided for the door.
Sometimes in an effort to keep a door ‘clean’, owners are forced to wipe the door down several times a day with a product. Push and pull plates keep the door protected from fingerprints and dirt. Well-designed products help to improve the quality of customer’s lives, because the door looks visually cleaner and the product is designed to withstand the demands of any type of traffic.
Traffic patterns do make a difference when it comes to deciding between metal and vinyl. However, we want our customers to be excited about the products that we offer. We present the choice of metal or vinyl, but either product will enhance the appearance of the door, in addition to protecting the living finish.
The preference for heavy-duty handles provides businesses with the assurance that the door handle can withstand years of opening and closing. Heavy-duty handles can be used multiple times without requiring replacement or repair. The door can still swing freely and there is no need to worry about removing fingerprints and dirt daily. On that same note, the products do not interfere with normal cleaning, which is beneficial to customers who rely on professional cleaners.
Metal is the common choice for institutions such as laboratories and hospitals. The benefits is obvious, they will always be a high volume of traffic in these types of facilities. People will always open and close the doors, numerous times on any given day.
The preference of metal with heavy-duty handles or rigid vinyl is based on the product and hand contact method. The contact point is the area in which hands routinely reach for first. If the contact point did not sync up with the protection, it would be pointless to offer protection. Both installation choices synchronize with the contact point, drilled or adhesive. Therefore, there is no need to opt for one choice over the other, since both offer superior protection for the contact point.
In today’s competitive environment, you have to provide a unique product and service and follow that up with a high level of commitment to customer satisfaction. If push and plates only protected one side of the door and not the other, it would not be a valuable feature for the customer. The choice of metal or rigid vinyl allows the customer to select the type that is most complementary to their door.
