ADDISON, IL, August 20, 2008 — According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 15 percent of incidental workplace deaths are caused by slips, trips and falls, second only to traffic accident fatalities. Slips, trips and falls account for 15 to 20 percent of all workers’ compensation costs.
Pres-On is combating this problem with its Shur-Step line of non-skid tape designed to provide maximum skid resistance on a wide variety of floor types and surfaces. Rugged enough for industrial, marine, warehouse and other heavy-duty environments, Shur-Step is the ideal safety solution when applied to steps, ramps, loading docks, ladders, around machinery, or anywhere slippery conditions exist.
Low profile, extremely strong, and water resistant, Shur-Step tape features a selfadhesive backing that applies in seconds and adheres to any smooth, clean, dry surface, including the powder coated paint finishes found on lawnmowers, truck beds, and snowmobiles. Finely ground abrasive particulates provide a sturdy footing, indoors or outdoors, preventing accidents, reducing downtime and creating a more productive workplace.
Unlike lesser quality tapes, Shur-Step stands up to aggressive chemicals, detergents, alcohols, solvents and heavy vehicular traffic without tearing or peeling up. Shur-Step is available in 60′ long rolls in several widths. Shur-Step can also be ordered in specialized die-cuts to present an attractive, customized look
