Selecting Rubber Edge Trim For Sheet MetalIn my opinion the rubber edge trim extrusions with the rounded back look better than the straight back edge trim extrusions. When the edge is exposed they also go around sharp corners a bit better. The straight back rubber edge trims work the best if the edge is going to be butted up against something.
Correct Rubber Edge Trim Opening
Also very important to get the correct edge trim opening for your application, never try to put a smaller rubber edge trim extrusion opening over a thicker item. It will not work out well. A slightly larger opening rubber edge trim extrusion can be made to work with a bit of glue or if it is butted against something it would not matter.
At the bottom of each listing I have put in a chart for the different gauge metals to help you decide which of our EPDM rubber edge trim U channel extrusions would be best for your application.
