clear kitchen board boards plastic where protective strips kick

Where to buy Clear Plastic Protective Strips for kitchen kick boards?
Does anyone know of any kitchen outlets or other stores, where they stock the clear plastic 'u' shaped strips that protect kitchen kick boards from soaking up water spills? Have been to Fuzzion Cocinas (near Ikea) and they no longer stock them (although they were helpful with some other kitchen items).

Can't help with the "U" shaped stuff, but I see a lot of white or clear thin plastic tubing around.  Could you not "split" that along one side to slip over the bottom of the kick boards?

The kick boards are called "el plinto" (plinth) and Fuzzion Cocinas would be my first choice too. If not in stock I would drive to Puerto del Rosario, straight to Ideal, not just because it's the fastest shop to get to (from Caleta) but there's more DIY shops around.
The next one is Brico MG, we've shopped there before and I can remember they do stock some profiles just not sure if plastic or timber only.
Third shop is just a few yards up the road and the name is something like Maderas (whatever), google shows a different kitchen outlet (that one is gone) but they do sell similar products. They also cut sheets of chipboard to size and tape the edges so definitely worth to visit if you're planning any diy in the future. We've been there a couple of years back and they had for sale some pvc profiles 10+ feet long at the back of the workshop.

Haven't have been in any other shops in Risco Prieto Industrial Estate but a 5 minutes drive will take you to  Ferreteria Saaverda, quite a large DIY shop. Actually two - you have to walk out and cross the road to get to the other part (paint+bathrooms).

There's also one ugly solution: Crossed my mind once Emmi mentioned the plastic tubing. What's about using a trunking for electric cables. Don't think they do transparent trunking, though. Have I said ugly already; right? Huh

Went today to  Ideal in Puerto and found them in white.

My next stop was Brico MG, where I found the white ones again but also a few bits of the transparent version in two different sizes.
