Installing Corners Protectors
The following information pertains to the installation of an outside base corner protector for use in restaurants with high traffic corridors typically susceptible to impact and damage from carts and other abuses. This stainless steel product will eliminate the frequent need to repair quarry tile outside corners and replaces any current products now being used.
Recommended materials for applying this product include “GE SiliconeII, 100% silicone sealant for aluminum and metal” where applications are bonding to cement board surfaces and Hydroment Ultra-Set when bonding stainless to stainless. The Ultra-set can be purchased in “sausage tubes” from local distributors found from using the “Distributor Locator” on the Bostik Findley website (www.bostikfindleyus.com). Additional relevant information such as MSDS, application recommendations, etc. are also available on this website.
Decimet Sales, Inc. keeps a stock of these corners on hand to eliminate any lead time concerns.
Installation is ideally to be the day before installation of the quarry tile base. Base tile should be run from these corners out to eliminate small cuts adjacent to these corners. Grout in place as you would a standard base application and neatly caulk the tops of the stainless with the GE Silicone II (color: Aluminum).
