End protectors

ITW Angleboard's (Glenview, IL) new AngleWrap(TM) uses a unique design, which allows for a reduction in the product's leg length. New Angleboard measures 2.5" x 2.5" x .225", instead of 3" x 3" x .225", for a savings of approximately 25% on a per-piece basis, and an increase of 18" on a piece-per-pallet basis, says the manufacturer.
