3 Reasons to Invest in Door Protection for Your Business

Door protection is one of the most effective ways to protect the doors and door frames in your building from both long and short-term damage.

The importance of door protection rests in the fact that doors are some of the most important, commonly used, and vulnerable objects in commercial buildings. This causes them to be one of the most frequent victims of long-term damage and deterioration that can only be fixed through replacement.

An investment in door protection is an investment in the future of your building.

Door protection no longer has to be an eyesore, with colours and styles to blend seamlessly with the rest of your interior design. With Rootex door protectors, your doors will be safeguarded from long- and short-term damage, keeping your investment safe and preparing your building to welcome the crowds.

The 3 key reasons you should install door protectors in your building include:

1. Keep Your Doors Safe from Impact Damage

In the way of foot traffic, heavy carts, passing machinery, and wheeled trolleys, doors are often the most susceptible to damage.

A damaged door can pose a security or fire hazard; if damage occurs, it is the responsibility of the business owner or proprietor to repair it with haste.

Prevention is key; with door protectors, you will give the door a layer of protection to absorb impact.

Your door protectors can be sized perfectly according to your door type to give edge-to-edge coverage and protect the most vulnerable areas from knocks, scratches, and bumps.

2. Improve First Impressions

Imagine you’re showing a new employee or a stockholder around your building, and issues begin standing out like a sore thumb.

A chipped baseboard, dirty handprint, damaged door, or loose ceiling tile conspire to lower the first impression of your building and, at worst, impact your business.

Door protection will help prevent the embarrassment and stress of realising your building isn’t as pristine as you imagined.

By preventing damage before it can occur, you will safeguard your building and give your guests the best first impression.

3. Lower Your Maintenance Costs

Almost every building has ‘problem areas’ that incur more damage than others.

Busy workers, constant foot traffic and heavy machinery eventually take their toll, causing the repairs and maintenance budget to creep higher and higher.

Doors are one of the biggest victims of this day-to-day hustle and bustle. Your doors’ constant use and potential damage would typically require staff or external contractors to provide upkeep, cleaning, and repairs.

With door protectors – spend your time and energy on more profitable matters.
