Furniture manufacturers need corner protection for tables, chairs and other items of furniture that protects their products from scratches, dents, chips, knocks and transit damage.
The manufacture process needs to incorporate damage resistant foam edge components, that also makes handling of the furniture quick and safe from damage. Upac have developed a system of corner protection for furniture that reduces damage, improves customer quality perception and also ensured recyclability of all materials. Plastic corner protectors such as the Upac 3D Corner Protector suit all types of furniture and materials including wood, metal and glass.
Plastic corner protectors prevent these sensitive furniture areas (such as the corners of wooden tables) being damaged during transit. Corner protectors also act to cushion sharp corners, protecting other items or areas from damage whilst the furniture is being transported. They can be used under shrink film and stretch film to prevent film puncture.
