Stainless Steel Corner Guards: A Solid Investment

Corners take a lot of abuse. Whether it's moving furniture or taking a turn that's a bit too shallow with a forklift, all it takes is a single incident to leave a lasting scar on a building. Even the elements can wear away at corners, causing real damage over a relatively short period of time. That's why it's important to invest in stainless steel corner guards.

Are Stainless Steel Corner Guards Really Necessary?

While no one will argue that buildings should have their corners left unguarded and unprotected the necessity of stainless steel corner guards isn't always apparent. After all it's less expensive to buy and install plastic or wooden corner guards.

The problem is that corner guards are not an expense; they're an investment in your building.

Wood and plastic corner guards will splinter and break if they're struck, and they won't provide the same physical protection that stainless steel does. Not only that but sun, wind, rain, and even moisture in the air will quickly cause wood, plastic, and other subpar materials to bleach, grow brittle, and crack. Stainless steel will last for years and years showing no signs of wear and tear, while other materials will need to be removed, and new corner guards will have to be installed in their place. Those costs can quickly add up when you consider the cost of removal, the cost of buying new corner guards, and the cost of having them installed.

Stainless steel only has to be bought and installed once. In addition to the solid protection it provides your building's corners it also adds a smooth, space-age finish that gives an air of style and importance to even average locations.

Steel vs Plastic Corner Guards

When it comes time for you to decide on a material for the corner guards of your home or facility, it's important to know your facts. Though it may not seem highly important, the quality of your corner guards will make a large difference in your factory, warehouse, office building, and more.

If you are aiming for your facility to be rough and tumble ready, corner guards are a must. As the name implies, a corner guard protects corners and angles of walls from bumps, scrapes, dents, scratches, and more. If there is a lot of traffic going through your facility and it's not equipped with corner guards, you could be looking at a future of many wall repairs and replacements. This of course means time spent making the repairs, as well as money on the repairs themselves.
Corner guards are available in many different materials such as steel, rubber, plastic, and various polymers. The plastics and polymers are, unsurprisingly, the less expensive up-front option. However, steel corner guards offer a host of benefits above those made of rubbers and polymers. Some of these benefits include:

Resistance To Weathering
Steel is an incredibly stable material, meaning that it will resist any ill-effects other materials may suffer from due to weather changes. Extreme hot and cold both have very little effect on steel, whereas plastic can shrink, sag, wrinkle, bulge, crack, and shatter when exposed to an extremely hot or cold environment for a prolonged period of time.

Greater Durability
It's a fact that steel is stronger and more durable than any plastic or rubber material. Dings, bumps, and scratches which would be serious on any other material may well just buff right out of a steel corner guard.

Chemically Inert
Finally, steel is a highly inert material, unlike many plastics and other polymers. This means that steel will not readily produce chemical reactions with other substances. (In fact, stainless steel is so inert it doesn't even rust.) Highly acrid environments, such as those found in factories along the seaside, can eat away at and erode plastics. Similarly, various chemicals and even other plastics can cause a breakdown of the rubber or plastic itself when prolonged contact is made. This makes steel components an ideal choice for factories, warehouses, treatment plants, and more which handle possibly corrosive materials.

Though steel may have a slightly higher upfront price tag, you will save money in the long run on repairs and replacements of your walls and corner guards alike.
