Benefits Of Using Finger Plates
There are two main benefits which come with using finger plates on your door:
- Assist the door user – finger plates enables the person using the door to identify that it is a push door. Some finger plates come with “push” written on them to further instill this.
- Reduced wear and tear – The second benefit is that it can reduce wear on the door, especially for doors which see heavy use. This means that the door can last longer and you’ll only have to replace the finger plate occasionally instead of the entire door. On top of this, the metal plate is more hardwearing compared to the wood of the door.
