How You Get Ahead
The wall end caps (guards) are fabricated with various thicknesses from ultra heavy duty 14ga through 22ga and are available in three finishes. The 18ga is the most popular and provides a good balance of cost, weight, and corner protection. The wall end guards are accurately cut and can be purchased as just a basic channel, or with winglets, and can include mounting holes for either configuration. The products have deburred edges to save your hands and those of your customers.
Accurate bends with no canoeing: This means your wall end guards will be hugging the wall all the way up and down. Our machines provide accurate bends and fantastic consistency.
Mark-free bends: These aren't as easy to make as one might think. We use a combination of tough, removable protective film on the sheets, rounded shoulders on high precision bend dies, and if necessary, additional cloth or urethane film to ensure you never have to put up with any marks on the metal. Thanks to the consistency of the tooling, you will also not have to worry about "nicks" and/or "offsets" that results in slight differences from tooling sections along the bend.
Deburred Edges: These provide peace-of-mind that you and your crew need not worry about cut fingers and hands. Your customer will be exceedingly grateful especially the maintenance and janitorial personnel who will likely be around and/or touching the wall end guards on a regular basis. This one sounds obvious but we have encountered extremely sharp edges in hospitals, high end luxury apartments, labs, correctional facilities, etc, etc. In all these locations, sharp edges are a problem.

Stainless Steel Surface Finishes Explained Clearly!
|What is the #4 Brushed Finish?
The #4 brushed finish is the most popular available today, and typically utilizes . There are various names for it including brushed, polished, satin, and sometimes even nickel finish. It's the de facto industry standard in commercial, industrial and residential applications where aesthetics and longevity are important. It's also the most consistent across batches and is easier to match when upgrading or adding to previous installations. The #4 brushed finish will never fade and is basically ageless, providing you keep it maintained.
|What is the 2B Finish?
The 2B Finish is gray in color and somewhat reflective. It looks good initially, but is extremely difficult to keep pristine in applications where it will be handled and/or cleaned frequently. This has no effect on the performance or longevity of the product, but rather the aesthetics. Fingerprints, oils, and various liquids tend to stain the surface of the metal, resulting in uneven coloring and patches with different shades of gray. In addition, the 2B finish is done at the steel mill and may vary in color from batch to batch.
|What is the BA Finish?
BA finish, or Bright Annealed finish is similar to a #8 mirror finish or a chrome finish. While quite uniform, the finish is done at the steel mill and may vary slightly from batch to batch of material. You'll find the BA finish on the inside of dishwashers, laundry machines, refrigerators, etc. The bright annealed finish is achieved by heating up and cooling (annealing) in a controlled environment.
|Are Stainless Steel Surfaces Anti-Bacterial?
There is a common misconception about stainless steel being anti-bacterial, like copper, brass and bronze, but that is not the case. However, stainless steel is generally cost effective enough and durable enough to be cleaned and/or sterilized frequently without breaking down the surface or material. This is the reason for its popularity in everything from surgical instruments to restaurants. If it isn't destroyed by carelessness, including denting, abrading, drilling holes, etc, stainless steel will provide one of the longest-lasting and best looking finish options available.
