Imagine having to keep your family safe from slips and falls on a ramp or deck during British Columbia’s coldest winters on record.
Tough job, right?
Not for this family. In the midst of expanding their existing deck to accommodate their aging mother, a cost-effective solution was presented to the family by the contractor to eliminate unnecessary slips and falls.
DIGG Canada (www.diggcon.ca), the family’s deck contractor, meticulously searched online within Canada for a product that would meet three standards: 1) the product would stop a potential dangerous slip and fall situation 2) the product must be easily cleanable and can be removed if necessary, and 3) the product must stand up to any weather conditions.
Unfortunately after many hours of research DIGG was unable to find a suitable product in Canada, so instead turned their attention to products in the United States. There, they quickly found a non slip aluminum tread designed specifically to prevent slips and falls which met their three criteria listed above.
The significant benefit about non slip treads is the ability to mount the tread to any surface in just a few minutes and in any weather condition. And if you intend to move the treads around over a period of time, treads will not leave behind a sticky residue like non slip grit tape or paint will. Non slip treads are available in multiple sizes and colors to meet any need, and are always in stock for immediate shipping.
Upon completion of the expanded deck and ramp, DIGG wasted no time mounting the treads purchased less than a week before. On a chilly, yet dry January afternoon DIGG’s crew installed all 19 non slip treads placed roughly 8” apart.
The family’s unique problems were solved and DIGG had another satisfied client.
