Aluminum corner bead small8/30
I have a client wanting tons of white laminate boxes with some form of corner protection. The designer has spec'd a 3/8" x 3/8" x 1/16" outside corner which I don't know how I cam going to fasten to the boxes. In the interim I saw some fixtures with just a small bead flush with the laminate and I am trying to find it. It looks like it is installed post assembly because the laminate butts perfectly to the edges and I don't know how you would stick the laminate down perfectly in place even if we CNC'd it to a perfect size.
Google "Futura". Great aluminum extrusions for fixtures.
We've used the CW system. There is a you tube video. Google CW systems.
Larry, this is exactly what I am looking for. I did have a fantasy that something was available for installation after assembly, but knew in my heart that this was what I had seen. The designer wants a painted 3/8" angle to be installed over the existing corners, but I have no idea how we will install it.

You might try a high-strength double stick tape.
The client has returned and is now ok with a 1/2" or 3/4" angle on these edges but they want them painted white. Does anybody know of such a thing, particularly something with a hidden connection to the corner?
Protecting a corner with a painted edge! Do they think the chipped paint is going to look good? I'd consider having the edges powder coated with the toughest coating they have. I'd also use the widest corner they will tolerate to get the greatest bonding area. 3M makes some really strong double sticks.
