Protective Plastic Edging

Since 2001 Shaw Trust Industries has become the UK’s leading supplier of edge protection strips for precision ground industrial blades. We are top rated and long standing suppliers to all major UK manufacturers of saw blades.

Our customers recognise both safety and quality benefits of protecting sharp edges on the journey from the point of manufacture right through to installation. Keeping your precision engineered blades as razor-sharp as the day they were produced – and ensuring the safety of all those who come into contact with them.

Our LDPE and polypropylene edge protection strips are custom extruded in profile and colour to the exact specifications you require, packed and shipped from our Doncaster factory to meet even the most demanding of lead times; ensuring that you are able to ship your products safetly and efficiently to your customers.

In recent years we have moved further into the export markets, making regular shipments to Europe and as far afield as Australia.

In addition to blade edge protection we also extrude in other shapes and materials including tubing of varying diameters and wall thicknesses; slide binders for office stationery and custom extruded profiles. Simply get in touch with us to find out how we can help you.
