Corner Guards

Corner Guards

Corner Guards

Corner Guards offer protection to exposed edges of columns and walls in areas of high traffic.

Ancon Corner Guards are manufactured in standard lengths of 1250mm in either stainless steel, galvanised steel or untreated mild steel. Stainless steel provides the greatest corrosion resistance and, where aesthetics are important, can be supplied with a satin-polished surface finish. The standard mill finish may show weld discolouration. 

Two standard angle sizes of 50 x 50mm and 75 x 75mm suit the majority of applications; both are manufactured from 3mm plate, formed to a 91 degree angle. They can be either cast-in to concrete or post-fixed to almost any material.

Cast-in Corner Guards

Wavy-tailed U-shaped lugs, welded to the reverse, provide a secure anchorage in concrete. The profile of these lugs has been designed to avoid clashes with reinforcing bars and to aid concrete flow.

Each corner guard is supplied with four M8 set screws to enable it to be fixed to formwork. These fixings utilise the two tapped holes on each leg of the angle.

Surface-Fixed Corner Guards

Corner Guards can be supplied plain-backed for surface fixing. Each face features two holes, normally located 160mm from either end, to accommodate the fixings.

As the fixing type is dependent on the substrate, the diameter of these holes should be confirmed with us when placing an order. Leviat can supply fixings and advise on appropriate hole diameters where necessary.
