Wall Corner Protectors

I have drywall columns that need corner protectors installed at a bank. Looking at 4'x1.5" commercial grade protectors, but not sure if I should use the peel and stick which would look cleaner or predrilled, screwed or nailed version. Which would hold up better? I should state that the tellers are banging into the corners with their carts. I'm thinking the screwed version would be easier to replace and hold better.

Re: Wall Corner Protectors

Screwed no matter what, aluminum/metal would be best.

Re: Wall Corner Protectors

I think the commercial version that a retaining plate is screwed on and the guard clips on is the way to go. They come in all kinds of colors and styles.

Re: Wall Corner Protectors

I looked at those, but I was thinking of something with a lower profile. I think the bank tellers would catch the edge with their cart and stop them in their tracks. Then again, that's what they get for crappy driving!
