A public school system in southern Seattle sent us some pictures of how they were using our HandiTreads. Knowing our product is being put to good use protecting students from slips and falls makes us extremely happy.
Slick stairs and walkways that are exposed to the elements are what we do best, since HandiTreads are easy to install and rust resistant, it was the perfect choice for them over the various other non-slip products.
The facilities manager, who oversees nine schools, said he likes to keep a stock of HandiTreads at his shop so he can quickly fix problem areas. Government buildings and even industrial businesses have begun to take steps insuring the safety of their workers and customers.
Our Vice President of Sales, Bill, took note of the amount of orders coming from Washington. “We have had a number of large tread orders from the state of Washington in the last month. Their damp weather makes our treads very valuable and beneficial!” We usually see an uptick in interest from customers in the fall months as people prepare for winter weather. The fact that so many where from a region that is known for wet weather is not surprising. HandiTreads may have been forged in the snow and ice of Chicago, but their non-slip properties carry over to many other work and home applications.
Have some HandiTreads you would like to show off? Have a close Slip, Trip and Fall call and like the share the story? We’d love to hear from you!
