There is an old door with some marks from a jimmyproof lock. It was replaced with a single cylinder deadlock, satin nickel finish. To cover the marks, it was decided to install a back plate covering the affected area (a rectangle of 4 x 6). Of course this back plate will have a hole so the deadlock goes through it.
What materials do you suggest to cut to this size that will blend well with the satin nickel? Initially I thought about opaque acrylic but it might not look good (plastic looking versus metal deadlock). Maybe a metal looking acrylic that I found, or an aluminum sheet? How difficult would it be to cut the hole on them?
PS: it is inside a safe building, it does not requires strong protection. It is more for the looks (cover imperfections from the jimmyproof lock that was removed) than for security. Painting is not an option because the door got damaged in this area and it was decided to not replace the door.
Appreciate any ideas for materials that would go well with the new satin nickel deadlock!
