Safe Way Treads Wear Like Iron!
Verified Purchase

I bought a set of these reflective treads for the new deck I built. They are still in great condition after two years of blistering SoCal summer heat and two winter downpours. We are having our house remodeled now, and workers carrying sacks of cement, drywall, lumber and sand are tromping on the stair treads, and they still hold up fine. We hose off our deck regularly as well and they have not come loose.

The Last Bath Mat You Will Ever Buy!
Verified Purchase

My only regret is not finding out about peel and stick bathtub mats 30 years ago. This mat is thin and sticks directly to the tub, so you can hardly tell it's there. Unlike suction cup mats that are bulky and have a tendency to slide around as well as get mildew underneath. Straightforward and simple installation, non-slip surface, and long length make this product a winner in all aspects. Everyone should own one of these.

Super Reflective - Holds Great!
Verified Purchase

Tape sticks to surface like it’s hanging on for dear life - definitely don’t need to worry about it coming off. The reflectiveness of this product is amazing blends in good with aluminum panels so it doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb but when the light hits it you definitely know it’s there super bright.

Stay Safe on Icy Walkways This Winter

Preparing your home for snow and ice can help prevent the slips and fall that account of 300,000 serious injuries and 20,000 deaths in the United States each year.

Reduce the risk of falls by following some of these simple steps:

Prepping the areas around the entryways of your home to help prevent the chance of a slip or fall during the colder months. You can lower the risk by making some permanent changes to your home:

  • Ensure that there is adequate lighting – both indoors and outdoors.
  • Adhere Safe Way Traction’s deck strips to wooden and concrete surfaces like your porch, walkway, deck or patio. These products are lightweight, easy to apply and can be installed any time of the year.
  • Paint outdoor surfaces with Tuff Coat from Safe Way Traction, a paint-like product containing a non-slip additive that comes in many colors to match or enhance your home’s décor (minimum temperature requirement).
  • Apply traction tape or stair treads to stairways and areas of concern. Safe Way Traction’s tapes and treads are self-adhesive and come with options of color and grit size for most environments (minimum temperature requirement).
  • Indoors, keep floors as dry as possible. Have a floor mat available and check the bottom of your feet each time you enter the home. Clean off accumulated ice, snow or water.
  • Outdoors, shovel and treat pathways with salt of sand immediately after storms. Prevent dangerous ice buildup by clearing sidewalks before snow is compacted by footsteps or melts and re-freezes.
  • Salt lowers the freezing point of water and can be spread on sidewalks or driveway to keep them from getting icy, or to help melt ice that has already formed. Salt works in temperatures above 12 degrees F, but can be touch on grass and shrubs and can eat away at concrete and steel.
  • Sand does not melt ice and is an abrasive material that is applied to icy walkways to provide traction. Sand can be effective, even when it’s too cold for salt to do its job, but if you use too much sand you’ll need to clean up drainage areas when spring rolls around.
  • If you don’t have sand on hand, other abrasive materials such as kitty litter, saw dust and wood ashes can be used to create traction on icy sidewalks. Be advised that these also accumulate and will need to be properly cleaned up come spring.
  • Adjust downspouts to drive water away from pathways. In winter, it doesn’t take long for pooling ware to become icy patches.
