Edge Protectors & Corner Protectors FAQs

Are edge protectors recyclable?

The recyclability of edge protectors depends on the material they are made from. Edge protectors made from materials like cardboard, paperboard, or certain plastics are generally recyclable. These materials can often be recycled through your recycling service provider.

What is the use of edge protectors?

Edge protectors, also known as corner protectors or corner guards, serve a crucial role in protecting goods and packaging during storage, handling, and transit. The primary uses of edge protectors are:

  • Corner Protection: Edge protectors are specifically designed to safeguard the vulnerable corners and edges of products or packaging from damage. They act as a buffer, absorbing shocks and impacts that may occur during transportation or handling.
  • Load Stability: Edge protectors help maintain the structural integrity of palletised goods, preventing load shifts and minimizing the risk of products being crushed or deformed under the weight of other items during storage or transport.
  • Strapping and Banding Support: When strapping or banding goods together, edge protectors provide reinforcement and distribute pressure evenly, reducing the risk of the straps damaging the products.
  • Stackability: By using edge protectors, items can be stacked more securely and efficiently, optimising storage space while preventing crushing or deformation of lower layers.
  • Surface Protection: In addition to safeguarding corners and edges, edge protectors can also protect delicate or fragile surfaces of products, preventing scratches, scuffs, or other surface damage.

Overall, edge protectors play a vital role in improving the overall durability and protection of goods, minimizing the risk of damage during the various stages of their journey from the manufacturer to the end recipient.

How do you cut edge protectors?

Cutting edge protectors is a simple process that can be done using standard tools. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to cut edge protectors:

  • Gather the Necessary Tools: You will need a cutting tool, such as a utility knife or a pair of scissors, to cut the edge protectors.
  • Measure and Mark: Determine the length of the edge protector you need for your specific application. Use a ruler or measuring tape to measure the desired length and make a mark on the edge protector at the appropriate spot.
  • Cut with a Utility Knife: If you are using a utility knife, place the edge protector on a flat surface, and position the blade of the utility knife at the marked spot. Apply gentle pressure and run the blade along the edge protector, cutting through the material.
  • Cut with Scissors: If you are using scissors, place the edge protector on a flat surface and hold it firmly with one hand. Use the scissors to cut through the edge protector along the marked line.
  • Dispose of Waste Properly: Dispose of any waste material in accordance with your waste service provider’s guidelines, especially if the edge protectors are made from recyclable materials.

Remember to exercise caution when cutting edge protectors, especially when using sharp tools like utility knives. Always cut away from your body and keep your fingers away from the blade to avoid any accidents or injuries.
