ARMORED: GLASS CORNER PROTECTORS
Here at Prism Glass, Health and Safety, and the Environment are important to us. That is why we are advocates of products such as ARMORED Corner Protectors which help reduce breakage and injuries in the glass and glazing sector. As long as these protectors are not damaged, they can be re-used, reducing their impact on the environment. Moreover, when no longer usable or needed, they can be returned to ARMORED for recycling. However, why use corner protectors? Where and when can you use them?
Why use ARMORED Corner Protectors on glass panels?
Generally speaking, glass weakest point is its corners, especially if the glass is toughened. ARMORED corner protectors help protect these fragile glass spots and site from damage while the glass is being handled, but more importantly, they help reduce injuries.
Handling glass with ARMORED corner protectors means:
Handlers can rest the glass on the floor no matter what the surface if they experience sudden or unexpected fatigue
In the unexpected event of a trip or fall, while handling glass, the risk of injury is potentially reduced as the impact is absorbed and the sheet is more likely to remain intact (when the impact point is a corner). ARMORED has successfully tested a 2.2mx0.9m (12mm) toughened sheet on a protected corner from a 1m height without damage
While moving sheets of glass on site corners are less likely to cause damage to finished surfaces on site
Glass sheets can remain separate from each other while stored - this can be especially beneficial for transporting glass
Corner protectors are easy to store in a van or site box, they can be re-used, and a must-have for glass manufacturers, transporters and installers.
