5 Reasons to Buy Stainless Steel Corner Guards

You have a corner that you need to protect but you aren’t sure what type of guard you should choose. Corner Guards are strips of metal bent to fit over and protect wall- and other kinds of corners from scuffmarks, paint scrapings and other damage.
We offer four different types to choose from, including stainless steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, and regular steel corner guards. Each one will give you a slightly different look and level of protection, and depending on what you want to protect, stainless steel corner guards might be the right choice.
Here are five reasons why it’s our best selling corner guard:
  1. High-resistance to corrosion and staining - We use only high-quality 304-grade stainless steel, which is highly resistant to corrosion, staining or other damage.
  2. Easily installed - Stainless steel corner guards are so easy to install, you don't even need instructions.  Use any high-quality construction adhesive, allow to set, and you're done!
  3. High impact capabilities – Our stainless steel corner guards can withstand light to heavy impacts depending on the gauge you select. They’ll protect your corners in any high-traffic area.
  4. Fits any location – The stainless steel corner guard provides a nice look to any corner and any location. It’s highly durable but it has a nice bushed finish, making it right for any décor.

Corner Protectors Provide a Flashy Finishing Touch

Congratulations! You’re putting the finishing touches on your renovation. Whether it’s your industrial warehouse, or your offices in the warehouse section of town, you’ve developed an industrial look that is both polished and practical. However, you’re worried that traffic (whether it’s forklifts, or overloaded dollies and carts in the hands of uncaring delivery staff) will knock holes in your wall’s paint job, or in the walls themselves.

This is where our corner protectors are the perfect solution. Strong, yet stylish, they protect any type of corners, whether drywall, brick, metal or plaster. Our regular steel corner protectors can be purchased bare, with a grey primer, or galvanized, and you can paint them any color you choose, allowing them to stand out, blend in, or complement your industrial décor. We also have aluminum checker plate corner protectors that provide a bright, flashy, mirror-like accent to your corners—making them stand out to the eye, and to the forklift driver.  The most popular, however, are our stainless steel corner guards, with an eye towards style and a contemporary look.

But don’t limit your thoughts just to wall corners, either. Our corner protectors can provide needed protection for the corners of your forklifts themselves, as well as other machinery that has a tendency to cut corners more sharply than intended. In your offices, add our stainless corner protectors to the reception area desk and coffee table, or the credenza in your conference room. Don’t forget doorways when thinking about what else needs protection from the day to day traffic in your office or warehouse.

So check out the wide variety of corner protectors available on our website, from steel and stainless steel to aluminum and checker plate, to industrial. We have a wide variety of widths and lengths and gauges to choose from when putting those perfect finishing touches on your renovation.
