Stretcher Plates

Stretcher plates are a hygienic surface used in healthcare settings to protect the door during patient transport, from moving beds, gurneys, and equipment between wards and treatment rooms. Mounted at the centerline of the lock to the centerline of the plate, and typically installed on both sides of the door. Stretcher plates can be used as a protection plate surface for hand traffic as an easily maintained surface.

The correct fit for your Stretcher Plate should be 2” shorter than the width of your door, which gives a one-inch allowance on each side. That way it clears your door trim and any weather stripping. If your door is 36” the correct size to order is a 34” long stretcher plate.

This item will arrive fully de-burred for smooth edges with a protective vinyl film that should be removed after installation.

NFPA NotesNFPA 80 Standard; Field installed protection plate shall be labeled and installed in accordance with their listing; Labeling is not required where the top of the protection plate is not more than 16 in. above the bottom of the door. 

Please note that kick plates on fire-rated doors may need to be tested, labeled, and installed properly to meet your local building codes, door warranties, and the like. We do not warrant or approve these plates for any specific usage.
