Corner and Edge Protection is a Cheap Way to Protect Your Product

Anybody who has moved knows how easy it can be to dent or damage a sheet, or even a window. It can be hard to safely move large flat items like mirrors, tables, and paintings. If you take this to an industrial level, where these ungainly objects are moved and shipped in the thousands or hundreds every day, damage is almost certain. Even with high mechanical efficiency, damage and breakages will occur. A pane or a panel will slip and fall sooner or later, move during transport or bang into the edge of an opening. In some scenarios, a single pane can cause a landslide if others are caught in its momentum.

Transport will always result in losses. These losses can be reduced if an organization is willing to take simple preventative steps.

Simple and Cheap Corner and Edge Protection

Let’s say you need to ship a truckload full of windows. Glass countertops are another option. You may have a shipment of solar panels to transport from the factory without any cracks, dents or other dings. You want to make sure that the items are handled with care, packaged properly, and supervised by a supervisor. It’s also important to ensure that all items are fitted with corner or edge protectors to protect them.

Imagine a smartphone protect. It’s really nothing more than an outer cushioned band of plastic. The protective strip is the first thing to hit the ground when you drop your phone. It absorbs the impact, and prevents damage. Edge protection and corner protection work the same for panels and panes. Fitting protectors to the corners or around the edges of your product will give you extra peace-of-mind that it is protected from accidental accidents.
