Door protection is one of the most effective ways that you can 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 protectors provide an essential barrier between your door and the commotion of the day, adding strength and durability to the parts of the door that are most often kicked, shoved, and knocked. 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 both 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, and if damage occurs, it is the responsibility of the business owner or proprietor to repair it with haste.
Prevention is key and with door protectors, you will be giving the door a layer of protection to absorb impact.
Your door protectors can be sized perfectly and 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 this – 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 to prevent the embarrassment and stress that comes with realising your building isn’t as pristine as you imagined.
By preventing damage before it has the chance to occur, you will be safeguarding your building and giving your guests the best first impression.
3. Lower Your Maintenance Costs
Almost every building has those ‘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. The constant use and potential damage of your doors would typically require staff or external contractors to provide upkeep, cleaning, and repairs.
With door protectors – you can spend your time and energy on more profitable matters.
