It is defined as the width of the Edge protector. The greater wing, the more surface of protective material in contact with the protected good, and the greater compressive strength of the edge protector. If needed, we can produce asymmetrical edge protectors, i.e. one wing of 80 mm, and the other wing of 20 mm.
The thickness is the parameter with the greatest impact on the edge protector’s resistance. To correctly define this parameter, we must understand the objective of the protector. If the objective is just to help stack the goods and keep them straight, thicknesses of 2-3 mm are suitable. If the objective is to protect heavy goods against impacts and vibrations, it is advised a thickness of 4-5 mm. For special cases, we can produce edge protectors with up to 8 mm thicknesses.
It is the height of the protector. In IPYESA, we can produce edge protectors from 80 mm (to protect strapping pressure points) up to 6 meters, to protect heavy duty iron or aluminium plates.
