Slip and Fall Accidents Cause More Concussions Than Sports?
It is not a mistake to assume that sports injuries would be one of the leading causes of concussion and other brain injuries. However, it is in fact slip and fall injuries that is a leading cause, accounting for 40% of concussion and other brain related injuries nationwide.
As the snow and ice seems quite imminent on our shores, having already appeared in Scotland, and no doubt soon to make it’s way to England, combining this with the dark nights makes for an increase in risk of slip and fall injuries.
Protecting yourself from injuries due to slip and falls is important all year round, as it’s not only snow and ice than cause these types of injuries. Water, dirt build up and poor footwear can all attribute to a fall.
We produce and supply a wide range of anti slip tapes, perfect for protecting against slip and fall injuries on all but the loosest of surfaces.
Coarse anti slip tape has large grit granules applied to the surface. This creates wide valleys, inbetween the peaks. This prevents ice and dirt from clogging the valleys and rendering the anti slip surface ineffective.
For the aforementioned loose surfaces, bolt down anti slip plates can be applied in areas where anti slip tape can not be applied. By using bolt down anti slip plates, you can have an anti slip surface which can only be used when needed also, as the plates are fixed down with screws or nails.
Heskins stock a range of non abrasive anti slip tapes, as well as our abrasive range, for use in many environments. Many colours and sizes are available, with custom options available dependent on order quantity.
