This is a very resistant decorative protection, composed of a protective Zikonyl and instead of aluminum, has an inner profile run the entire length of plastic, which allows to absorb the shocks usually receive the walls. This model is designed for use in nursing homes, hospitals advised to use the ZK-Z model, since a hospital bed with a patient can weigh 500 kg, while in a residential center or mentally handicapped, the are moving wheelchair with approximate weight of 200kg.

As the width of 200mm., You can protect objects that are located at different heights, absorbing the impact and then recover its original shape and size.

In this photo you can see the model ZK-T

This model is more economical than the ZK-Z but without sacrificing its effectiveness, and that by bringing the inner profile run the entire length is more robust than if you just take the aluminum into pieces. Our company refuse to make this model, since despite the fact that their manufacture is more economical, because it carries lower amount of aluminum, the resistance of this model against shocks is lower, there are zones where doesn't have aluminum so practically there are no absorption of impacts.

In addition, the visual effect provided by the aluminum pieces placed far from satisfactory, since the profile will observe a series of undulations, caused by the pressure of the coating. The only way to eliminate the waves, is decreasing the pressure of the coating. Doing so voids the lateral resistance to impact, when impact with a bed in a corridor profile use to be laterally.

Which has been discarded due to the shape of hide 'pressure waves' which produces in the coating, is reducing the pressure thereof, in which case the robustness and effectiveness of the protector is clearly reduced.


In the image you can see the tests performed with the aluminum model Pieces:


Bellow is an image of the ZK-T:


The walls into which the section is to be mounted should be finished and painted.


First, we must cut and drill the Zikonyl ® sections depending on the necessary measures by calculating for a space of approximately 600 to 1000 mm. between fasteners. For better fitting, cut the profile Zikonyl ® 2mm. longer than interior plastic. The end bits are valid for both the right and left of the profile and have to be mounted before the profile Zikonyl ®.
