► SAFE SOLUTION®
Our feature product, "Safe Solution®", works by dramatically increasing the Coefficient-of-Friction of hard mineral surface flooring (eg, ceramic tile) and steel enamel bathtubs, to make them less slippery especially when soaking wet! Treatment with Safe Solution permanently, microscopically, and invisibly changes the surface characteristics of these structures to produce the desired anti-slip effect. This is not a surface coating. You cannot see, but you certainly can feel the difference!
There remains no unsightly alteration of your beautiful floor or tub appearance.
Safe Solution is recommended for use in and around the home, in your kitchens, bathrooms, patios and pool areas, and is also ideal for commercial applications such as in hotels and restaurants... anywhere a potential slip and fall accident can occur. It has even been used at the bottom of swimming pools to help prevent falls on these permanently wet surfaces. No coating produces the same effect!
► CLEAN STEP™
When your Safe Solution treated surfaces are cleaned regularly using our unique industrial strength cleaner, Clean Step™, the anti-slip properties are enhanced and maintained for prolonged periods of time. When used together, and by following our Floor Safety Maintenance Program™, your protected surface is guaranteed to remain slip resistant for life! (Ask us about our Limited Lifetime Warranty).
Of course, Clean Step can be used as your everyday cleaner for anything from light to extreme cleaning situations.
► SLIP & FALL INJURIES CAN BE LIFE-ALTERING... EVEN FATAL!
Osteoporosis, thinning of the bones, is a major public health threat which afflicts 55% of Americans aged 50 and above. This condition is responsible for millions of fractures annually, mostly involving the lumbar vertebrae, hip, and wrist.
There are no symptoms of Osteoporosis until you suffer your first fracture, most commonly resulting from a fall. Hip fractures are by far the most devastating type of broken bone. They account for about 300,000 hospitalizations every year.
If you are elderly, a broken hip makes you up to four times more likely to die within three months. One in five people with a hip fracture ends up in a nursing home within a year. Many others become isolated, depressed, or too frightened to leave home because they fear they will fall.
Almost 1 out of every 4 women who suffer a hip fracture die within six months because of complications such as pneumonia or a blood clot. Women break bones because of osteoporosis more often than they have heart attacks, strokes or breast cancer.
