Theoretically, cities can only expand so far. Generally bounded by vibrant suburban areas, rivers, and oceans, big cities such as Los Angeles, New York, and Toronto can only get so big. They can, however, always get taller.
Thanks to the invention of the skyscraper, city growth always seems possible. From the humble beginnings of the first ten-story "skyscrapers" back in the late 19th century (thank you, Henry Bessemer and George Fuller!) to the two-hundred-story monoliths constructed today, skyscrapers have come a long way. Congested areas such as Midtown, Manhattan; the Inner Loop, Chicago; and LA's downtown financial district can now expand almost indefinitely by growing up instead of out.
Office towers aren't without hazards, however.
More compact space means a more maze-like interior. A more maze-like interior means more corners, and more corners mean more possibility of damage. Anything from mail carts to coffee carts to hand trucks to hard-sided rolling luggage could lead to damage. Granted, most of the damage will be minor: scrapes, scratches, grooves, and dings. However, a large volume of small damage, accumulating over time, is still a major problem.
That's why we always recommend investing in corner guards for office towers. Our sleek designs are not only easy on the eyes, but they're also easy to install. With different lengths, thicknesses, and styles available, you're sure to find the perfect solution for protecting the corners of your office tower doorways, hallways, and corridors.
For more information on our corner guards, or to share any questions or comments that you might have, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to working with you.
