Benefits For You

The corner guards are fabricated with various thicknesses from ultra heavy duty 14ga through 22ga and are available in three finishes. The 18ga is the most popular and provides a good balance of cost, weight, and corner protection. The corner guards are accurately cut and can be purchased as just a basic angle, or with winglets and mounting tape or mounting holes. The products have deburred edges to save your hands and those of your customers.

Accurate bends with no canoeing, which means your corner guards will be hugging the wall all the way up and down. You may have noticed other corner guards don't touch the wall in the middle, and look bowed. This is fairly common and is a result of cheaper equipment. Our state-of-the-art press brake provides accurate bends and excellent consistency. All your corner guards will be bent the same piece-to-piece.

Mark-free bends aren't as easy to make as one might think. We use a combination of tough, removable protective film on the sheets, rounded shoulders on our high precision bend dies, and if necessary, additional cloth or urethane film to ensure you never have to put up with any marks on the metal. Thanks to the consistency of the tooling, you will also not have to worry about "nicks" and/or "offsets" that results in slight differences from tooling sections along the bend.

Deburred edges provide peace-of-mind that you and your crew need not worry about cut fingers and hands. Your customer will be exceedingly grateful especially the maintenance and janitorial personnel who will likely be around and/or touching the corner guards on a regular basis. This one sounds obvious but we have encountered extremely sharp edges in hospitals, high end luxury apartments, labs, correctional facilities, etc, etc. In all these locations, sharp edges are a problem.

You want speed and we've got it. Your order will be shipped quickly, typically within 2-3 business days. We understand you need to get the job done, and we understand you don't want to waste time with a flaky supplier. On the off chance there is an issue, we'll contact you to let you know what's going on. There is nothing worse than waiting 2 weeks only to find an order is still 2 weeks from completion.

Shipping and peace of mind typically don't belong together. No doubt you have experienced plenty of issues with small package and/or freight carriers turning your shipment in to a pile of firewood, pretzel, or scrap metal. We have a verifiable 0.01% (yes that is correct) damage rate on our freight shipments and a 0.8% damage rate on package shipments via FedEx and USPS. In addition, if there is damage in shipping simply send an image and we'll reship the order, typically within 24 hours.


Corner Guard Finishes

#4 Brushed Satin Finish - The #4 brushed satin finish is by far the most popular option you'll encounter when using corner protectors. Various names for the same finish are satin, brushed, #4, or nickel finish. and it offers a great looking product that will tend to look good even after being abused for years. The finish is common in restaurants, industrial facilities, hospitals, offices, correctional institutions, commercial facilities, and anywhere tough corner protection is required.

#4 Brushed Black Finish - The black #4 finish is a newer, high end option for the ultimate in protection and luxury. Whether you just want an accent piece or are building a high-rise in the heart of a major city, the black corner guards will provide appealing corner protection that is guaranteed to impress. We will be introducing a PVD finish that is extremely tough and excellent for high wear area.

Random Swirl Finish - For applications where scratching is going to be common, or where you want a unique and attractive finish, the random swirl finish offers a great option. The circular scratches are great for cleaning as any scratches created by aggressive cleaning agents, applicators, Brillo pads, etc won't be an issue.


Corner Guard Sizes

Lengths - Corner guards are available in standard lengths which are 24", 48", 60", 96", and 120" and you can also specify any custom length up to 120". Tolerances re typically +/- 1/32" and angle tolerances are typically +/- 0.5 degrees

Widths - The corner guards are available with 1", 1-1/2", 2", 2-1/2", 3", 3-1/2", 4" and 4-1/2" legs. If you need a more customized product, we can certainly help. For example, if you need a 1" x 4" angle, please let us know as that's absolutely no problem to fabricate, will not take any longer than a standard corner guard.


Corner Guard Mounting Styles

The corner guards feature either straight legs or 3/8" winglets. The straight legs are great if your walls are exactly square and there is no need to worry about gaps, poor fit, etc. The 3/8" winglets on each leg are bent towards the wall at a 10 degree angle. This guarantees a perfect fit every time, and also means they are easier to install..The winglets go by various names, including "wall huggers," "kicks," "riggers" and who knows what else.

Straight Legs

The corner guard with straight legs is your standard product with no frills, and is the hardest to install nicely. If the corner is not exactly at a 90 degree angle, you will probably have unsightly gaps on one side or the other. Also, keep in mind that the radius of the bend (even though it's only 1/8") will cause the corner guard to sit off the wall unless you have an 1/8" x 45 degree bevel on the corner of the wall. Or, if you stop the drywall, paneling, etc an 1/8" short of the corner on each side, this would also help.

Straight Legs with Mounting Holes

The straight legs with mounting holes features mounting holes 3/4" from the edges and 24" on center. This is another option where your wall has to be perfect 90 degree angle in order to have a nice looking installation. Again, you need to bevel your wall corner or stop the panels slightly short of the corner.

Straight Legs with Mounting Tape

The straight legs with mounting tape features an extreme-duty, industrial two-sided mounting tape. The tape is purposely thin so it doesn't space the corner guard off the wall. However, keep in mind you need a wall corner that is a perfect 90 degree angle to ensure the tape sticks everywhere. If your corners are indeed square, you will never have issues with the tape coming loose. As with the other straight leg options, you will need to bevel the corner.

Legs with 3/8" Winglets

The "winglets," "wall huggers," "kicks" or whatever you prefer to call them are the recommended solution for most installations. Each side of the corner guard has a 10 degree bend at 3/8". This is to help ensure you have a nice fitting corner guard if the wall isn't exactly 90 degrees and/or there are imperfections in the drywall, paneling, FRP or other substrate you're using.

Legs with 3/8" Winglets and Mounting Holes

The winglets and mounting holes option is the recommended product for installations that require mechanical fastening. You do have to be careful that you don't over-tighten the screws, as this could result in a warped appearing corner guard from the screws pulling too tightly against the metal. Despite needing more care during installation, this option will give you a great finish on your project.

Legs with 3/8" Winglets and Mounting Tape

The winglets and mounting tape option is the easiest and arguably the nicest option. It's also one of the most common due to the speed at which your crew can get a project wrapped up in the best looking manner possible. The tape is just the right thickness so the corner guard sits flush on the wall, and is an industrial product with very high tack. We typically recommend backing up the tape with either RTV Siicone or Titebond Titegrab adhesive. This ensures a "bulletproof" installation that you will never have to come back to, guaranteed.
