EMI's Competitive Advantage: Protecting Your Fixtures

Along with every new store or remodel comes the challenge of keeping your fixtures looking fresh and new for as long as possible. Day-to-day wear and tear can quickly show, so protecting your fixtures is always important. Here are a few suggestions to make your fixtures last while staying true to the element of style in you store interiors:


1.     Bumpers

Polycarbonate bumpers are a great option to protect your store fixtures and walls. They are strong, long-lasting and can be made in a variety of colors to match the look and feel of your store. Bumpers are a great investment for any fixtures that are prone to bumps, such as checkstands, counters and walls.

2.     3mm Edge Banding

3mm edge-banding is more resistant to abuse than other, more narrow edge-banding sizes. It is great for countertop edges, door edges or for any fixtures that will be heavily used. Edge-banding will protect the wooden panels in your fixtures, making them stronger and more durable. EMI is proud to provide 3mm edge banding services in house, applied by CNC machinery, and performed by highly trained professionals who ensure a seamless, lasting application, every time.

EMI has developed an aluminum corner trim that has a unique, sleek design (no visible screw heads) and requires a special application process that EMI’s handcrafted professionals have mastered. This trim is installed within the wood panels to offer utmost, durable protection.
