Steel Corner Guards are for Small Businesses Too

When you think of steel corner guards, you probably think of heavy industrial areas where heavy machinery collides with block walls or steel posts on a regular basis. As a small business owner, you might be surprised at the places that benefit from the installation of high quality, industrial-strength steel corner guards from Boss Corner Guards.

If you run a small business that includes any kind of loading docks, you need steel corner guards to protect your posts and walls. Small mechanic shops see bumps to their posts and walls from customers driving into or backing out of their garages on a daily basis. Family-owned farms ship their produce in tractor-trailers, and even the most careful of drivers can clip a post on their way by.

Areas where janitorial carts bump around corners and in and out of closets, bathrooms and other rooms should be protected with corner guards, as well. While you can use plastic corner guards in some of these areas, it is a worthwhile investment to use higher quality, much longer-lasting steel corner guards from Boss Corner Guards. We have said it before and we will say it again; it is better to invest in a high-quality product than to have to replace an inferior product time and again.

Parking garages are another place where steel corner guards are a must. If your small business includes a parking garage for your employees or customers, steel corner guards are a detail you should not miss. It is always better to have a scratched steel plate than to have chunks missing from your concrete pillars. Corner guards look more professional and help to maintain the structural integrity of the pillars over time, through many bumps and scrapes.

Boss Corner Guards: The Movie Is Here!

We're proud to announce the official release of our Boss Corner Guards video.  It was not an inexpensive endeavour, but the results came out great, in our humble opinion!  We produced two versions - a full, long-version, and a shorter, abbreviated version, for use on different sites and in different areas.

Our long-version stars several of our own employees, along with a few professional actors and voice-overs:

The shorter version is for Product pages, and rehashes some of the information from the longer video, but at a quicker pace, and is more concise:

The Importance of Drywall Corner Protectors

Drywall corner protectors are probably not high on your list of necessities for your home or business improvement projects, but they should be. There are many spaces in your home or business that need drywall corner protection. High quality steel corner guards look much better than nicked and chipped wall corners.

Consider Boss Corner Guards for these common spaces:

  • High traffic areas.
  • Dojos, or other sparring spaces.
  • Indoor sports arenas and practice areas.
  • Garages or transitional spaces, such as hard-used mudrooms.
  • Home hobby shops or sheds.

Not only will your wall corners look better, they will be more structurally sound. Repeated impacts causing chips, nicks and cracks in your drywall corners will undermine the integrity of the drywall. Eventually the flaws in the corner will broaden and spread, becoming flaws in the wall. Taking preemptive measures with steel Boss Corner Guards saves you time, money and the aggravation of having to fix a big wall problem that could have been prevented.

When you buy drywall corner protectors, be sure that you are ordering a high-quality product. You can easily get cheaper, plastic corner protectors, but you'll be replacing them as often as every month in areas of heavy impact. If you need drywall corner protectors, then you definitely need them to be durable and long-lasting; otherwise, the money you thought you were saving will be thrown away on buying more corner protectors. Plus, your precious spare time will be wasted installing them time and again. Do yourself a favor, invest in the best quality drywall corner protectors the first time around.

Please contact us to order your high-quality drywall corner protectors today.

Corner Guards - the Movie. Coming to a Screen Near You!

Boss Corner Guards may have a new e-commerce website, but our corner protectors themselves are not new at all.  We have been producing them for years, and their popularity has been growing exponentially.  This led us to our recent foray into the online world, with our new site, a mobile version, a Facebook presence and even this blog.  So what's next?  The world of online videos, of course!

Over the course of months, we put together scripts, storyboards, and had many discussions about what would go into our first professionally-produced video.  We settled on two versions - a long- and a short-version, which will be on YouTube and our various websites.  Walls were purposefully damaged, samples were made, and even more script revisions took place.  Voice-over and live actors were hired, and even some of our staff appear quickly on screen.  When the video debuts, see who you can spot!

Keep your eyes open for Boss Corner Guards' soon-to-be-released video, coming to a computer screen or mobile device near you soon!

In the meantime, be sure to have a look at the wide selection of corner guards available on our new e-commerce site .
