FMP Secures Exclusive Distribution for ProTecBar, Adding another Innovative Solution to Its Door Hardware Line

FMP now offers the ProTecBar protective handle cover as an economical, durable solution to repainting or replacing door handles and push bars.

Kevin Smither, president of AquaPro Painting and inventor of The ProTecBar, has seen his fair share of worn and scratched door hardware in chain restaurants. “My company is constantly contracted to repaint the door hardware in restaurant chains,” says Smither, “But people’s rings, car keys, and other things wreak havoc on door handles and push bars. As soon as they’re repainted, the scratches and wear and tear start all over again. ProTecBar is an easy-to-install cover that protects door hardware from scratches and abrasions and helps create a lasting, “like-new” appearance,” Smither adds.  “We chose FMP as our exclusive distribution partner because of their reputation for both outstanding customer service and innovative product offerings.  ProTecBar’s unique application makes it the perfect addition to their line.”

ProTecBar is impact- and scratch-resistant, will not fade, and will not warp or crack in extreme temperatures. It also features an antimicrobial additive.  ProTecBar currently fits Kawneer brand handles. It does not require tools for installation. The protective cover snaps in place over an existing door handle or push bar.

FMP is a manufacturer/distributor of parts and accessories for the foodservice industry.
