EMKA Edge Protectors – protect edges, protect people

EMKA extruded edge protectors are now offered in a wide range of sizes using spring steel spines within PVC or EPDM sheaths, so ensuring a firm grip. EMKA are also pleased to announce sections in fire grade EPDM.

Self-locking “U” sections are ideal for covering of potentially sharp metal or glass fibre edges which may otherwise present a hazard to people on furniture or equipment. Typically, shelving, doors or similar may require safety sheathing or a form of bumper protection which can be provided by these purpose-designed, ex-stock sections.

EMKA point out that edge protectors are often called for elsewhere for purely cosmetic purposes where they serve to tidy up otherwise unsightly edges or to protect cut edges from environmental factors – or from impact damage in some situations.

EMKA explain that in addition to carrying comprehensive UK stock they also offer a custom design service on their extruded section products.
