  • Publication number: 20150354269
    Abstract: Kits and methods for protecting entranceways, such as elevator entranceways are disclosed. An entranceway protection kit includes a protective pad that includes padding material disposed between the pad surfaces. A pad fastener, such as a pad fastener surface, is coupled to the pad's surface and is configured and arranged to removably couple the protective pad to the entranceway. The protective pad includes a folding stitch line to enable the crisp folding of the pad around entranceway corners. The pad has a low-profile so as to no substantially decrease the clearance of the entranceway when installed. Fasteners are coupled to the entranceway with adhesive that do not leave a residue on the entranceway surface when removed. The protective pad includes baffles to stabilize the padding material.
