The aluminum tread plate is a high strength material designed to withstand high impact. It goes by many names such as checker plate, chequer plate, diamond plate, and 5 bar tread plate.
It features high impact resistance, which makes it an excellent choice for use as a door protection plate. Its also routinely fitted in places like warehouses, gyms garages. These plates can withstand high impact from cart and trucks all day long while still offering outstanding protection to the door or wall it's covering.
One of the great features of the chequer plate is the raised pattern, which acts as an anti-slip mechanism on the face making it useful for flooring and use on trailers. The back of the kickplate is flat to allow for a flush fitting.
Given the level of protection tread plate offers, we think they're excellent value for money.

Our entry-level kick plates are predominantly for decorative purposes. Whist they will still offer some level of protection to the door, they can only be fitted on a door with a low volume of traffic.
Standard-duty is our most commonly used thickness; it is typically the go-to choice for domestic doors and office buildings. Standard duty kick plates offer a great deal of protection while benefiting from good aesthetics. It is suitable for locations with moderate usage.
Heavy-duty kick plates must be installed where additional strength may be required—often used in locations with a greater footfall like public buildings, hospitals, and restaurant kitchen doors. These plates will also offer a great deal of protection against impact from trucks and carts.
Our thickest sheets are often used when the strength and impact resistance of the door protection plate is crucial. Servicing areas like industrial warehouses where the level of impact could be high would call for the extra heavy-duty option.
Pre Drilled Holes (Screws included) With this option, our Kicking plates will come pre-drilled and countersunk with matching fixing screws. We use countersunk Philips head wood screws which will sit flat on the kick plate once fixed. The size of the screw is 5/8” x 6g.

Antibacterial coated kick plates.
As people around the world are reeling from the global Covid-19 pandemic, it’s essential to look for ways to reduce the spread of the virus and possible future viruses. At Kick Plate Direct, were doing our small part and addressing this concern head-on with the introduction of antimicrobial coating to our range of kick plates, which will now be available as an optional extra. This protective antibacterial coating fights viruses in public buildings, allowing you to operate safely with peace of mind.
The coating is a clear lacquer finish that is applied to the kick plates at the point of manufacture. The applied coating is barely visible on most materials, allowing the style of your kick plates to shine through. It prevents 99.9% of mold growth, bacteria, biofilm, and viruses for the entire lifetime of the product. Its efficacy has made it a favorite for industries around the world and is tested to the JIS Z 2801 and ISO 22196 international standards.
We recommend the antimicrobial coating be used in hospitals, care homes, public buildings, and schools – the places where safety and hygiene matter the most. We especially recommend the antibacterial coating be applied to push plates and pull handles, which are used by hands. Adding this treatment to kick plates will help fight against cases of flu, colds, and other viruses for years to come.How does it work?
The antimicrobial technology works by embedding silver ions in the material substrate. These ions destabilize the virus-cell, prevent it from replicating, and effectively kill it.
It is entirely safe and comprised of substances approved by the EPA, EFSA, and FDA. It does not include nano-silver, triclosan, or any other organic antimicrobial additives that have environmental concerns. The coating does not wear off, as it is completely incorporated into the kick plate material. It will remain active for the lifespan of the product. We can have the coating applied to any of our kick plates, and they can be installed in any location, both inside and outside.
