The Advantages and Varied Uses of Corner Guards in Public Institutions
Whether in a hospital, hotel, restaurant, office, or home, walls all behave the same way: knock into their corners, and you have some unattractive scrapes or chips to deal with. To prevent the constant repairs, sanding, painting, and expense that come with chipped corners, many people turn to corner guards for maintaining their drywall, brick, or plaster walls.
Imagine paramedics sweeping into a hospital with stretchers and knocking bits and pieces of wall out of the way as they bump into corners to rush into the operating room; or bellboys hurrying to move a client's luggage and inadvertently slamming his metal briefcase into an intricately sculpted column; or unattended children playing tag in a restaurant and knocking plates off tables into walls; or new co-worker Bob moving into his office carrying three different boxes and inevitably running into the corner on his way to the cubicle.
Whatever the case, unprotected corners, particularly in densely populated and traveled areas, are more than likely to be abused in some form or other, and as a consequence, lead to deterioration in walls and other affected equipment, unnecessary spending for repairs, and worst off, the scrapes or bruises on people's knees. It's why public institutions like hospitals, hotels, restaurants, or offices make frequent use of corner guards and protectors to keep the interior and exterior of their building professional and well-kempt in appearance and functionality. Not only that, but corner guards have become common enough that they are considered as complementary or even stylish to different environments, almost akin to makeup on a female or rugs in a home, rather than as simply "additions."
Our products vary in size and material, whether you're looking for a smooth finish as a sleek outfit to the office, or a checker plate surface to emphasize a unique, rugged, high-tech look.
In effect, these materials offer protection, quality, the prospect of saving money and time on repairs, and in some cases, even a unique flair of design. We offer corner guards in stainless steel, which complements any type of environment, professional or personal; galvanized steel, which is ideal for harsh and particularly moist conditions; aluminum checker plate, which is perfect for that industrial, high-tech, professional grade look for walls or equipment; steel checker plate, for those wanting a more industrial look; and industrial steel type, meant for areas with heavy machinery and equipment.
