A corner guard is an angle that covers and protects the corner of a building, wall, curb or even a post that could be damaged by – or cause damage to – a vehicle, person or piece of machinery. This includes forklifts and trolleys that may accidently hit the corner. Corner guards are most used in high traffic areas like carparks, shopping centres, factories, and hospitals. Their best use subsequent to application, is their ability to protect the building or wall from cars, shopping trolleys, hospital beds, industrial trolleys, or forklifts.

When high traffic areas such as shopping centres and factories are exposed to damage without the correct facility protection, damaged corners create a great eyesore. The expenses associated with the continual maintenance of facilities without the correct protection is relatively high and frequent. The installation of quality and appropriately chosen corner guards will reduce the costs of expensive ongoing maintenance.

There are varying options of corner guards available in terms of materials and sizes that would best suit the different industries and areas they are applied to. It is important that the correct corner guard is chosen to ensure the best use can be made upon installation and aesthetics can be maintained.
