Tips from the Shop: Protect Your Fixtures from Wear & Tear

Want to keep your store looking as shiny and new as it did on ribbon-cutting day? Michael Kunert, Randal’s VP of Operations, shares his fool-proof measures to protect fixtures from customer feet, stroller tires and employee wear.

  • In high-impact areas like cash wraps and interactive display tables, use 3mm radius edge-banding.
  • Add corner protectors on vertical corners that are vulnerable to stroller or shopping cart traffic, especially those near doors and checkout lines. Materials like anodized aluminum, powder-coated metal and customized plastic extrusions are particularly effective – and can be color matched so they’re practically undetectable.
  • On cabinet doors or drawers, ABS plastic laminate or Kydex thermoplastic 3-D laminate will hold up better against scratching and peeling than standard laminate.

“We work with our customers in the design phase to identify areas where we can utilize special materials to extend the life of their fixtures and displays,” Michael says. “Our bulletproof Signature Laminate and standard dowelled and screwed joinery ensure every Randal piece is built to last.”

So go ahead…start planning that 10-year anniversary party now.
