Rubber Column Guard
Our rubber column guard is made from high-grade raw materials that give maximum protection to the building properties like column structures and prevent damage to the car from accidental scrapes or bumps. The column guard has the same function as a rubber wall guard. However, the wall guard is a thick rubber wall protector mounted into the wall with black-yellow stripes for excellent visibility. It is made of high-quality compound rubber materials to withstand a lot of impacts. Our guard also has a lip on the top and we use bright reflective yellow and black stripes on the column guard to make it more visible to the drivers for easy parking maneuvers, which keeps the car from hitting the column. This product is very beneficial for both the building and the vehicle. The column guard prevents damage to the vehicle and saves money on repairs.
Columns are vital for any building, protecting the structure from collapse. The Romans were some of the first to use columns in their architecture, and the tradition has continued to this day. Columns come in many shapes and sizes, but all perform the same primary function. Many column functions include:
- Supporting beams and canopy structures.
- Giving structure to buildings.
- Separating spaces within the building provides a visual focal point for the whole building.
The Corinthian order is one of the most popular styles of columns used today. Ancient Greeks and Romans used this style for their buildings and Greek temples.
Rubber column guards have a long and diverse history. The first recorded use of rubber column guards was in 1812, when a French engineer used them to prevent the collapse of a bridge. In the early 1900s, rubber column guards became popular in Europe and America as occupational safety devices for miners, railroad workers, and elevator operators.
Installing a rubber column guard is one of those projects that may seem daunting, but with a little know-how, it can be done fairly quickly. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install a rubber column guard:
1. Remove the old column guard if there is one installed. This can usually be done by unscrewing or prying it off.
2. Measure the circumference of the column and cut the rubber guard to size using a sharp knife or scissors. Make sure to leave enough overlap to fit securely around the column.
3. Apply adhesive or your preference mounting system to the back of the rubber guard and then wrap it around the column, making sure to smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles. Hold in place for several seconds until the glue sets.
