Rubber wall guards can be a good wall protection option for industrial applications and other high impact areas where aesthetics is a secondary concern. Often found in service areas and areas with heavy vehicular traffic, these are utilitarian products are designed to not only protect the wall surface but also the objects running into them.

Generally, ‘rubber wall guard’ is used to describe any black wall guard used in an industrial application. While they are often called rubber wall guards these types of products are most often manufactured from elastomers such as EPDM (Wikipedia), HDPE (Wikipediaor other synthetic rubber or plastic materials.  All of these alternate materials offer similar advantages as natural rubber without the cost and difficulty in manufacturing.

Hi Brad, Unfortunately we do not currently offer the rubber wall guards pictured above. This article was intended for information purposes to help you select the right product. There are a few manufactures who sell products like these online; I would recommend a search for ‘rubber wall bumper’ to get you to the right place.
