The Benefits of Commercial Corner Guards for your Business

Part of running a successful business involves ensuring your building is in tip-top shape at all times. One of the best ways of doing this is to install corner guards on your walls to protect them from damage. There are a number of other benefits of commercial corner guards as well, and here are just a few of the most important ones we thought were worth mentioning.

#1. Helps secure your damage deposit

If you’re leasing your property, this is a major benefit, as dings and dents in a wall could cause you to lose your damage deposit whenever you move. Install corner guards now, and this won’t be an issue when that time does come.

#2. Keeps customers and employees safe

Don’t worry about people bumping into the corners of your wall and becoming injured. Corner guards will keep everyone safe, so you won’t have to constantly be watching to see this doesn’t happen.

#3. They’re attractive and blend well with any décor

The reason why many business owners do not have corner guards installed is because they feel they will be too industrial looking. That’s not at all the case with our corner guards, as they blend well with any décor, and provide a neat appearance that won’t in any way be distracting.

#4. It’s easy to install them

You can get the look and protection you want without spending a great deal of time, since our guards install quickly and easily. Chances are, your own maintenance workers can install them with the tools they already have on site.

As you can see, there are a number of advantages to having commercial corner guards installed in your commercial establishment. To find the right ones, contact us.

Protect the Drywall in Your New Mobile Home with Drywall Protectors

This week, we're proud to re-print a blog posted by one of our very happy customers (who has asked to remain anonymous).  A very interesting story, especially considering that it has been reported that 8% of the population of North America lives in a permanent or semi-permanent mobile home.

"When many people think of mobile homes, they think of single-wide trailers with wood paneling on the walls and a ceiling with vertical strips running from side to side. This couldn't be further from the truth in today's day and age.

Upon visiting a mobile home lot, you'll find that nearly all of the walls inside modular homes, double-wides and even single-wide trailers are made of drywall. Now, while this looks clean and spotless on the lot, just wait until you start moving in.

If you can manage to maneuver around the corners of your new mobile home, then kudos to you, but for the majority of the population, accidents will happen. So, how are you going to protect these newly painted, gorgeous looking walls you just purchased? You need drywall protectors.

How do I know this?

I recently just purchased my very own mobile home complete with drywall throughout the whole house including the entire ceiling. Let's just say - the drywall was beautiful until we started moving in. Then, came a nick here and a bump there and most all of it was happening on the corners!

I looked at my husband and said, "Whoa, wait a minute! We are bumping the drywall off. We need to find something to keep this from happening. We paid way to much money to keep doing this each time we bring in a big piece of furniture."

He agreed.

It took a bit of research, but I found a company that specialized in protecting drywalls that carried what we needed. They have great customer service and are ready to answer any questions you may have.

I wasn't sure what protectors we needed, but was quickly reassured that for a home we would need the 22-guage drywall corner protectors. You can see them for yourself by watching this video I found on Youtube. They also have a contact us page for those wishing to speak to them directly.

Now that we have almost finished moving in, I can't image what I would have done if all of our drywall was beat and banged from not being protected. I highly recommend that anyone who has purchased a new mobile home, a modular home, or even a single-wide trailer to protect their walls.

Oh, I don't want to forget - if you have kids like we do, you'll most certainly be happy you chose to protect your walls. Our little boy constantly runs through the house hanging onto the corners of the walls to turn into the next room at high speed.

Thank goodness for these corner protectors!"

How Drywall Corner Protectors Can Preserve Your Restaurant's Appearance

Whether you've recently opened a new restaurant or you're looking for ways to improve your already successful establishment, installing drywall corner protectors may be the answer you're looking for. Not only is it a cost-effective upgrade, but it also carries a multitude of long-term benefits. To help you understand how corner guards can increase the prosperity of your restaurant, we've listed three advantages behind protecting the walls of your establishment.

1.    When a new customer or a returning customer walks through your restaurant's front door, they expect to see a clean and pristine environment. If the corners in your building are scratched and dented from the daily hustle and bustle, restaurants often see, customers may believe the upkeep of your establishment is lacking, which will cause them to second guess the state of your kitchen. Luckily, installing corner guards can eliminate this scenario completely which saves your restaurant from making a bad first impression.

2.    While it's crucial for you to protect the walls in your dining area, it's also important you don't overlook your restaurant's kitchen. Unfortunately, as the staff quickly navigates their way through the space, accidents are bound to happen, which is why corner protection is needed. Collisions caused by delivery men manoeuvring large shipments of food is another possible threat to your kitchen's walls. Installing high-impact corner guards can stop your walls from needing constant repairs which saves you money in the long run. 

3.    Running a restaurant is a costly endeavour and saving money in unexpected ways is key to succeeding. Using corner guards to keep your walls safe from unattractive blemishes means you have one less repair bill to pay each month. Installation is also a simple and fast process, that you can choose to do yourself. Your only requirements are the corner guards you purchased and a strong construction adhesive. Once both are in front of you, apply the adhesive in a zigzag pattern on the back of each corner guard. Next, you merely place the guard against the corner and hold it for around 20 seconds. The final step is walking away from your newly installed guard and allowing it to set for 24 hours. After the 24 hours have passed, your walls will have sufficient protection for many years to come.
