Perfect Protection for Stairs and Corners

SkudoBoard STAIR GUARD/CORNER GUARD is a heavy duty, synthetic, rigid board that is specifically designed to fit perfectly around sharp edges, such as corners, stair treads, and wall edges. SkudoBoard STAIR GUARD/CORNER GUARD is lightweight, easy to install, and extremely impact resistant. The extra layer of protection from the fabric backed underside guards from dents, cracks, scuff marks, and scratches on stairs and edges due to carts, equipment, and general construction traffic.

The textured surface of SkudoBoard STAIR GUARD/CORNER GUARD provides high slip resistance in addition to being fire retardant and water resistant. The STAIR GUARD version also features a safety orange grip tape on the tread for additional slip-resistance.

SkudoBoard STAIR GUARD/CORNER GUARD is also resistant to curling and warping - reducing safety hazards on your jobsite. STAIR GUARD/CORNER GUARD has the same compression strength as SkudoBoard delivering protection from dropping objects, keeping your surfaces safe. It is also reusable – saving you time, hassle, and money.

Assessment & Suitability

SkudoBoard Stair Guard/Corner Guard should not be used on unprepared, uneven ground.

Stair Guard/Corner Guard should not be used on freshly placed concrete unless that concrete will be later covered with another finishing product, such as tile, carpet, LVT, etc. Using Corner Guard on uncured concrete can lead to curing lines where the boards are joined.


How to Apply

When protecting stair treads, loose lay the Stair/Corner guard on two stairs, measure the infill requirement, then pre-cut the required amount from SkudoBoard sheets, ready for installation.

From the top, secure the first Stair/Corner Guard to a base of SkudoBoard, protecting the top landing; this acts as an anchor point. Continue down the stairs placing infills and secure with 3” SkudoBoard Tape along the joins. If treads are wider than one Corner Guard, secure by taping down the seams.

Stair/Corner Guard installed on wall returns prone to damage by carts can be secured using 3M command strips or 3” tape if the walls are protected by SkudoBoard, Column Guard, or Tack Mat.
