FAQs

What's the difference between polycarbonate and vinyl materials?

The polycarbonate material has a smooth, glossy finish, and the vinyl material is textured with more of a matte finish.

Can I cut the polycarbonate corner guards down?

While it is possible, it is very difficult. We recommend ordering a custom size.

Does adhesive come with the corner guards?

No, adhesive is not included with the purchase of corner guards. If you select "No Fasteners" as your fastening option, you may choose to purchase construction adhesive from us separately. It is listed under the "Accessories" page.

What is the difference between the standard color palette and the other color palettes?

For all vinyl products there are 10 standard colors available. These 10 colors represent the most common and most readily available color options. Polycarbonate products are only available in clear and the 10 polycarbonate colors. All vinyl colors in palettes B, C, D, and Wildwood are considered specialty colors and are made-to-order.

What kind of tape is used on the polycarbonate corner guards?

The polycarbonate corner guards use a clear acrylic double-sided adhesive with a clear PET film liner. The tape used on all polycarbonate corner guards is much thinner than the foam tape used on the vinyl corner guards in order to maintain clarity for clear corner guard installations. Please note that this tape should not be used if the wall surface is textured in any way (stucco, wallpaper, etc).

Will these corner guards work on a knock down textured wall?

The textured vinyl with the foam tape would work better.

What type of adhesive should I use?

For most standard drywall installations, a generic construction adhesive is a great choice. There are a wide variety of options available - check the label on your adhesive to ensure that it will work for your specific application.

Corner Guards with Holes and Screws or Nails

Step 1

Wall surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from dust and grease. Wipe the wall surface with a solvent to assure all grease, dust and dirt are removed. Make sure that the cleaning solvent used will not damage the finish on the wall surface.

Step 2

Remove the clear protective film on the exposed side of the corner guard.

Step 3

For 3/4” wing corner guards:

Place in desired location, holding the corner guard firmly. Using factory supplied nails, hammer the nail through the corner guard into the wall.

For 1-1/8” - 3” wing corner guards:

Place in desired location, holding the corner guard firmly. Attach the corner guard by placing the provided self tapping screws in the pre-drilled counter sunk holes and attach to the wall.

Corner Guards with Double-Sided Tape

Step 1

Wall surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from dust and grease. Wipe the wall surface with a solvent to assure all grease, dust and dirt are removed. Make sure that the cleaning solvent used will not damage the finish on the wall surface.

Step 2

Remove the clear protective film on the exposed side of the corner guard (clear corner guards only).

Step 3

Peel off backing tape from one wing entirely, then peel back the tape partially on the second wing. Place wing with the fully exposed tape to the wall, then remove the remainder of the tape backing from the second wing. Press firmly along the entire length of the corner protector to ensure a good bond.
