Patch. Paint. Repeat. This is the costly process building owners go through every time their walls are damaged, which can frequently occur in high-traffic public spaces. While it may seem par for the course, a better solution is often underutilized: wall protection.
What is wall protection?
Wall protection is material used to protect an interior wall of a building from damage such as dents, scrapes, scratches, and chips. Various factors, including people, animals, equipment, and beds, can cause damage to walls, which is why there are several different types.
What are the different types?
Some of the most common types include:
- Chair Rails
- Hand Rails
- Corner Guards
- Wall Guards
- Rigid Wall Sheets
- Wall Bases
These products come in various materials and styles to fit the needs of any space, including plastic, aluminum, stainless steel, wood, and vinyl.
Where is wall protection used?
Historically, wall protection has been used most commonly in healthcare environments, including hospitals and doctor’s offices. However, because of its many benefits, especially cost savings, it is now used in high-traffic areas of most commercial buildings, including libraries, offices, schools, hotels, gyms, and even restaurants.
What are the benefits?
The most significant benefit is cost savings. Installing wall protection in high-trafficked areas can reduce damage (including structural damage) and overall maintenance costs and increase the lifecycle of your walls. Fewer paint chips, scratches, dings, and dents also mean your space looks better aesthetically.
