Concerns with mobility assistance devices

Many properties aren't built to be friendly for people with mobility limitations. There are narrow hallways with twists and turns that make it tricky to navigate with a walker or wheelchair. This is without making the occasional ding to the walls, particularly with vulnerable corners. Also, furniture placement could make leaving or entering a space hazardous. This is true for both the doorway and occupant.

You will want to do what you can to prevent both damages and injuries here. Corner guards can offer you all the protection you need for anyone using the property. At the same time, they will protect the building.

Are you in need of a walker for a while after surgery? Do you have a child or spouse that requires a wheelchair for mobility reasons? Maybe you have an elderly relative with reduced vision or who isn't steady on their feet. If you look for potential solutions online, you will find articles about remodelling. Solutions like these cost a pretty penny, so they may not be the best for you.

There's just as much for you to find with straightforward alterations. These include lowering switches and raising electric outlets. It is the same for installing safety rails and grab bars to enhance accessibility. You could also install swing away hinges on doors. Such suggestions are good.

Corner guards can be the easiest and most reliable option

There's often an overlooked solution that both protects everything and is easy to install. We're on about column and corner protection. There are guards that wrap around your wall's corners to keep them safe from damage. You can also apply them to door frames and other hazards.

If your requirements are temporary, you could remove the guards easily later on. For more permanent solutions, options exist for them as well. Whatever the case, installing them is a simple task.

Certainly, dings and small scruffs to corners aren't nice to look at. However, over time, major damages from repeat collisions can result in structural damage to walls. Rectifying it leads to big maintenance costs, especially if you need to plaster the entire wall. Corner guards can help you avoid the problem and are far more cost effective.

One last point is that they can do more than simply protect your walls. You'll want to produce a friendly, secure setting where everyone can move around comfortably. They can help with that, and you can even use them to add to the aesthetics if you think about things like the material and colour.
