How do I choose a metal corner guard?

We recommend the following thicknesses for the various types of stainless steel corner guard installations – choosing the incorrect corner guard can result in unnecessary repair, or early replacement of the metal corner protectors. We recommend:

16 guage = .060″ thick (heavy duty)
18 guage = .048″ thick (medium duty)
20 guage = .036″ thick (light duty)
22 guage = .030″ thick (decorative, light traffic).

What is SafetyEdge™?

Over 90% of wall corners are not a true 90 degree angle. SafetyEdge™ is a patented corner guard that compensates for the inconsistencies in degrees. By using SafetyEdge™ corner guards, you will avoid protruding sharp edges, hence providing a clean look for your walls.

Do I need SafetyEdge™?

If you are not sure if your wall requires a safety edge, simply place a measuring square against your corner. If you see any gap between the square and the wall, we strongly recommend the SafetyEdge™. By not using our SafetyEdge™, you may have protruding edges that can cause injury, unnecessary repair, or early replacement of your corner guards. Better be safe than sorry – choose the right corner guard for the space.

Why should I choose stainless steel corner guards?

Stainless steel corner guards provide your home with protection from damage and wear and tear. Corner guards save you significant time and money on repairing and painting costs from repeated damage from everyday incidents that plastic corner guards cannot provide. Not only that – it provides a brilliant finish that is not easily replicated by its plastic counterparts.

Is construction adhesive better than two-way tape for the installation?

Yes. Over the years, we found that two way tape was the weak point in keeping your corner guard in place. This could result in earlier replacement than what was intended. We recommend construction adhesives from your local hardware store. We recommend LePage PL9000 Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive, or equivalent.

What is a gauge thickness?

Gauge thickness is a standard measurement that is used for wiring and sheet metal. The smaller the number, the thicker it is. We recommend the following thicknesses for the various types of installations:
16 guage = .060″ thick (heavy duty)
18 guage = .048″ thick (medium duty)
20 guage = .036″ thick (light duty)
