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.

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 vinyl corner guards?

The vinyl corner guards use a double-sided rubber-based foam adhesive with a thickness of 1/32″.

Are there any installations in which I can't use double sided tape?

Polycarbonate - Because the tape used on polycarbonate corner guards is a thin film liner, it is intended for use only on smooth wall surfaces. The use of this tape on textured or porous surfaces such as stucco, masonry, and other drywall textures is not recommended. If installation on a highly textured surface is required, consider utilizing the holes and fasteners option.
Vinyl – The foam tape used on vinyl corner guards is the better option when choosing tape as your fastening option. The tape is thicker and more flexible, allowing it to conform to lightly textured or uneven surfaces. If installation on a highly textured surface is required, it is best to consider ordering your parts with no tape or holes and using construction adhesive.

Are these tapes pressure sensitive?

Yes, both the polycarbonate and vinyl tapes are pressure sensitive. When installing corner guards using tape it is important that firm, even pressure is applied to the entire length.

Can I cut the corner guards to a custom length myself?

While not recommended, it is possible to cut most types of corner guards in the field. If you need to we recommend using a fine tooth miter saw blade with a minimum of 80 teeth. Always be sure to read, understand, and follow all the safety rules that come with your power tools. Keep in mind that plastic is brittle and has a tendency to crack and break when cutting, and be sure to brace or clamp the material as you cut. If you are uncomfortable with this process, always feel free to contact Customer Service to receive a quote on pre-cut custom length items.

Do you offer custom color matching?

Yes, we are able to match your custom color. The requirements for a custom color match vary depending on the product line, quantity and desired lead time. Contact Customer Service for more information.

What material is used for textured vinyl corner guards?

Wallprotex produces vinyl corner guards from top UL fire-rated material.
