Aluminium kick plates are the most cost-effective material in our range.
Aluminium is an excellent choice of material for kicking plates as it is lightweight as well as strong. This makes it suitable to withstand moderate impact while adequately protecting your door. We use a high grade of commercial aluminium, which is very pure, meaning the plates can be used on interior or exterior doors. In addition to that, they're 100% recyclable, so they're good for the environment too!
The main feature of this product is the high-quality Anodised finish. Anodising is done to protect the material from scratches on the face. The material boasts a fantastic resistance to atmospheric corrosion meaning your kick plates won't tarnish, rust, or discolour over time. The anodised surface provides a highly decorative and long-lasting, highly durable finish.
We have a wide range of anodised aluminium colours available, including brass and bronze finishes, which present a lower-cost alternative to solid brass and bronze products. And unlike many powder coated kick plates, the anodised colour will not fade or crack over time.
We take extra care to smooth the edges of the kicking plates to eliminate the possibility of sharp edges.
Satin Anodised Aluminium
The Satin Anodised option is the most popular finish in the range. These kick plates feature a clear anodised surface finish, which allows you to see the natural silver of the aluminium.
A matt gold finish, which is similar to brass and PVD brass, but at a lower price point. The durable anodised surface means these kick plates can be fitted inside or outside without fear of tarnishing or ageing.
A matt Bronze/dark brown finish applied to the aluminium sheet. Bronze Aluminium is a more cost-effective alternative to oil rubbed bronze and imitation bronze. You can also comfortably install this finish outside, where it will be exposed to the elements without it affecting the quality of finish.
A solid matt black appearance. Black is a popular choice for both traditional and modern doors. The strong and protective anodised finish means you can fit this finish to your front door without fear of chipping or the plate losing its colour.
A shiny gloss finishes while maintaining the aluminium's natural silver appearance. This finish is quite reflective but will contain a slightly cloudy appearance.
Satin Brushed Aluminum
This has a fine grain finish with a similar appearance to Satin Stainless steel, but a more cost effective solution. As the material is solid aluminium, it will be suitable for use indoors and out without fear of rusting.
Our entry-level kick plates are predominantly for decorative purposes. Whist they will still offer some level of protection to the door, they can only be fitted on a door with a low volume of traffic.
Standard-duty is our most commonly used thickness; it is typically the go-to choice for domestic doors and office buildings. Standard duty kick plates offer a great deal of protection while benefiting from good aesthetics. It is suitable for locations with moderate usage.
Heavy-duty kick plates must be installed where additional strength may be required—often used in locations with a greater footfall like public buildings, hospitals, and restaurant kitchen doors. These plates will also offer a great deal of protection against impact from trucks and carts.
Our thickest sheets are often used when the strength and impact resistance of the door protection plate is crucial. Servicing areas like industrial warehouses where the level of impact could be high would call for the extra heavy-duty option.
Pre Drilled Holes (Screws included) With this option, our Kicking plates will come pre-drilled and countersunk with matching fixing screws. We use countersunk Philips head wood screws which will sit flat on the kick plate once fixed. The size of the screw is 5/8 x 6”

Antibacterial coated kick plates.
As people around the world are reeling from the global Covid-19 pandemic, it’s essential to look for ways to reduce the spread of the virus and possible future viruses. At Kick Plate Direct, were doing our small part and addressing this concern head-on with the introduction of antimicrobial coating to our range of kick plates, which will now be available as an optional extra. This protective antibacterial coating fights viruses in public buildings, allowing you to operate safely with peace of mind.
The coating is a clear lacquer finish that is applied to the kick plates at the point of manufacture. The applied coating is barely visible on most materials, allowing the style of your kick plates to shine through. It prevents 99.9% of mold growth, bacteria, biofilm, and viruses for the entire lifetime of the product. Its efficacy has made it a favorite for industries around the world and is tested to the JIS Z 2801 and ISO 22196 international standards.
We recommend the antimicrobial coating be used in hospitals, care homes, public buildings, and schools – the places where safety and hygiene matter the most. We especially recommend the antibacterial coating be applied to push plates and pull handles, which are used by hands. Adding this treatment to kick plates will help fight against cases of flu, colds, and other viruses for years to come.How does it work?
The antimicrobial technology works by embedding silver ions in the material substrate. These ions destabilize the virus-cell, prevent it from replicating, and effectively kill it.
It is entirely safe and comprised of substances approved by the EPA, EFSA, and FDA. It does not include nano-silver, triclosan, or any other organic antimicrobial additives that have environmental concerns. The coating does not wear off, as it is completely incorporated into the kick plate material. It will remain active for the lifespan of the product. We can have the coating applied to any of our kick plates, and they can be installed in any location, both inside and outside.
