Corner and wall guards are extremely popular in both residential and commercial settings to avoid the damages caused by the bumping of wheelchairs and stretchers. In shops, they are perfect for restaurants, hospitals, offices and schools where the irregularly shaped and moving furniture may cause the walls and corners of certain rooms or sections to be dinged up. In addition, they can also provide safety and protection for people and pets who are frequently in the open areas of the home.
The most common materials used for wall & corner guards are acrylic, plastic and metal. Acrylic is a very light-weight material, which makes it easy to install and handle. They are available in many different colors such as clear blue, white and yellow. The acrylic types are able to provide a higher level of reflection than the plastic types, which means that they will have a smooth and reflective complexion when looking at them from a distance. Because they reflect everything that is behind them, the acrylic wall & corner guards will not create shadows on the other side of doors or windows which are opposite them.
Another type of acrylic wall & corner guards is made out of heavy duty protection products which are made to withstand high temperatures. These products are able to resist extreme highs and lows as well as extreme temperatures during summer and winter. They are able to protect the walls against heat shifting which could lead to serious damage of the walls. Furthermore, they offer greater strength compared to some of the other products, and they also offer a smooth and shiny surface. This allows the user to polish the protective walls without having to take away from the appearance of the room.
Finally, there is a product made out of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that is another popular wall guard. This particular type of acrylic wall guard offers an outstanding level of durability as well as safety. As mentioned earlier, this type of wall guard can be used to protect the rooms against ultraviolet rays as well as high temperatures. However, it has another great advantage as well which is its reflective yellow color. As you can see, this type of rubber corner protector provides an excellent level of visibility while at the same time providing maximum protection.
Finally, there are 3M self-adhesive rubber corner protector strips available for use on the interior walls of any home. These strips are able to provide a level of protection as well as appearance for the homes that they are placed on. This type of product is able to provide a layer of insulation to the walls of the home which in turn protects them from becoming damaged by cold air which can collect in the interiors of the houses. The best thing about these products is that you do not need to use any other type of protector for the walls of the house.
With this in mind, it becomes possible to see how being able to install this product on the outside walls of the home will also help in increasing the protection that the home has against the elements such as wind and rain. Also, with the help of a professional, one is able to make sure that the strips or decals are installed in the right way. Also, these products are ideal to use on the corners of the home since they tend to make the corners look neater and more appealing.
