Why edge banding is gaining popularity among the people? Edge banding is done to cover the sharp edges of the furniture which is very harmful for the children & the elderly persons who have a tendency to bump into various kinds of surfaces. The old people do not have that strength left in their body to walk steadily. They do not take caution while walking which makes them vulnerable to cuts & scratches got from the sharp edges or corners of the furniture. The same is with the children who are so active & energetic & are not at all careful when they are playing which makes them vulnerable & there is great chance to get hurt in the sharp edges of the furniture. Edge banding helps in preventing accidents as the skin of the children & elderly people are soft & can turn into a big problem. Adults also get hurt on the edges of the ill finished furniture.
