Get Your Home or Business Holiday Ready

With the holidays around the corner, we want to remind you to plan for an increase in activity around your home or business. With people coming and going, not to mention wet and slushy fall weather, accidents are more likely. We want to make sure that everyone has a happy and healthy holiday season, so we put together some Koffler tips!

Get your home or business holiday ready with Koffler Sales

all weather floor mats The weather outside may not be so delightful – here in Chicago, the weather by December can be downright frightful! Prevent slips or falls as well as dirty slush from entering your home or office with an All-Weather Mat. An all-weather mat is specifically designed for wet conditions and freezing temperatures, and it will help provide a better surface when it is slick out.

It will also catch leaves before your guests or customers drag them inside with them. The holidays are very busy for everyone, so having to sweep less often by your entrance is a good thing!

During the holiday season, most people cook large meals more often or are entertaining. Give your aching joints a break with a padded mat designed for standing for long periods of time. Your knees will thank you.

Steps can be very dangerous this time of year because surfaces are slippery, and with stairs there is less surface area to help someone catch their balance. We highly recommend installing Anti Slip Stair Nosing to any outdoor steps and entrance or foyer steps you may have.

  • Turkey design with reflective feathers on a pumpkin

Preventing accidents in all weather using non slip tape from Koffler Sales

One clever way pet lovers are using our non slip tape, is by applying it on their stair treads so aging pets can get up and down stairs easily. It can be heartbreaking when your pet wants to spend time with you upstairs or downstairs, but due to old age or injury, they can slip or fall trying to be close to you.

Exactly what the dog was looking for. She’s 13.4 years old and needed something to grip coming up the front porch stairs. Excellent adhesion. Might try filing my fingernails on this stuff.

One female customer came up with the ultimate trick for her closet:

I have a handmade 50 pair shoe rack constructed of dowels. The shoes kept slipping on the dowels. I covered them with this product and no more slipping. Thanks.

Many of our customers with handicap accessible ramps use anti slip grip tape to ensure their ramps stay safe in all weather:

Thank you. I purchased KSC tape for less than half the cost of 3M tape available at my local hardware store. Free shipping, arrived quickly. Have a new TREX ramp leading to deck…was concerned about rain blowing in then freezing on ramp, making it a hazard. Washed surface, then used 70% rubbing alcohol to clean where strips would be laid. Used hand-held rollers to seal them to ramp. It’s only been down for 2 days, but am delighted with it. Will be interested to see how it holds up through the winter.

And our non slip tape will look beautiful in a variety of high-traffic spaces, including a historic chapel:

We purchased KSC super grip non-slip tape for the the steps at St. Peter’s Chapel on Mare Island, the oldest naval chapel in the United States. Not only has it made the chapel more safe for the many who come to visit, it also has g helped to improve the appearance of the front of the chapel. We were extremely pleased with how quickly the tape arrived and how easy it was to install. So pleased , in fact, we placed a second order so we could do additional steps on the sides of the chapel.
