Door Guards For Sale - Park Avenue Locks
Also known as door edge guards, door guards protect the ends of a door panel, useful in situations wherein doors are held open or objects tend to get in the way of a closing door. The door guards normally come with cutouts for other hardware such as latches, bolts and hinges where needed, and are typically used for protection, chipping and general wear and tear. They’re also great for use in high traffic areas where objects and people come in contact with the corners.
Most people are unaware of the fact that the bottom of a door – and around the doorknob – are some of the most touched surfaces in an office, and once they deteriorate, a new door will be required. You can protect all your doors from wear and tear before it begins to show by installing door edge guards and other products such as kick plates from Park Avenue Locks. In fact, you can do the same for other heavy traffic areas with wall corner guards and bumpers, and if you’re looking for other door parts like door stops and door closers, we have a variety of those, as well.
Among the almost infinite variety of door hardware out there, none combines openness with security quite like a swing door guard. These are the types of guards that have a little metal arm hanging on the door frame which swings over a peg on the door face to lock. You have undoubtedly seen these in hotel rooms, and there is a reason hotel chains use them: They allow the person inside the room to open the door a few inches and peek out, just as with a door chain, except the swing guard is much stronger and can’t be easily forced open.
We carry the Rockwood 604 and 603 door guards of this type, the 604 model boasting solid cast brass construction and the 603 boasting cast aluminum material.
A swing guard adds an extra layer of safety between you and the unknown outside your door. Much like the door chain ensembles we mentioned above, swing door guards allow you to open the door slightly without losing your sense of security. When you use a door chain assembly, an intruder can easily force his way into your home by snapping the chain with bolt-cutters – but the solid metal design of the swing door guards, such as those sold by Park Avenue Locks, are harder to break and nearly impossible to cut.
