The kick plate is made of aluminum. Aluminum is considered non-magnetic under normal circumstances.
Currently we do not carry an 8" x 30" satin aluminum kick plate. You can check with the ProDesk at your local Home Depot to see about placing a special order for that size.
If you do not see the specific size you need in store or online for this finish, please reach out to the ProDesk at your local Home Depot about placing a special order. We do carry a 10 in. x 34 in. Stainless Steel Kick Plate (part# 14320) that you could cut down with the proper tools.
Please consult a professional for this method of installation. There may be glues appropriate for this application.
The aluminum kick plate can be shortened. Please consult a professional regarding best method for your application.
We recommend #6x3/4” Oval head Stainless steel screws.
Please check with the ProDesk to see if they can special order the length you require.
This one was delivered bent so I exchanged for the brass which I like better.
This can be used on a hollow door, but be careful not to overtighten the screws so as not to strip out the thin wood.
Both will degrade at different levels. The satin aluminum will hold up slightly better, but both have the aluminum base.
