by Barbara 15. June 2012 10:19

Question about IV Wall Hooks.

Q: "I work in a county hospital where we are working to keep down equipment expenditures while making life easier for patients and staff. I see you sell IV wall hooks. Please provide more information. The current portable IV holders we use are heavy, bulky and expensive as well as obstacles for both patients and staff to deal with. Thanks. Sara."

Answer: The inexpensive  IV Hook from Wall Control mounts on the wall near beds, toilets, ect. By using these wall hooks, health care facilities are safer and have more room both for staff and patients to navigate. There is no need, in most situations, for bulky IV holders or IV stands

Use wall mounted hooks to hold IV drips in areas such as bed side, restrooms and Cancer Treatment Clinics.  An ambulatory patient can carry his or her IV drip bag from one IV wall hook to another without pushing or pulling a bulky, cumbersome IV stand. Fewer accidents occur because medical personnel no longer have to trip and stumble around IV stands that always seem in the way. Simplify your medical facility with the IV Hook.

Chain Fire Ladders or Emergency Ladders for 2nd thru 6th Stories, Made in USA Safety Products

by Barbara 8. June 2012 07:09

Question about Made in USA escape ladders

Q: "I manage a residence for abused women. Our building is 6 stories high. We do have some fire escapes. However, many of the bedrooms are not near the fire escapes. We are looking for ladders that can be kept under a bed or in a closet for emergency escape in case there is a fire. We prefer to Buy American. Which ladders do you suggest we purchase? Thanks. Beth."

Answer: We recommend the Bold Ladders which are made in the USA by Bold Industries. There are 12 foot, 20 foot, 35 foot and 50 foot ladders.

  • Quickescape 12 foot ladders. Weight: about 15 lbs. Choose from a QuickEscape QFL12SL Emergency Ladder With Sleeves, 12FT or a QuickEscape QFL 12 Emergency Chain Ladder, 12FT without plastic sleeve covering. Note: plastic covering helps to reduce the possibility of tangling. The 12 foot ladder is an Emergency Escape Ladder For the 2nd Floor. The QuickEscape® Emergency Escape Ladder hooks over a window sill for quick escape when other exits are blocked. Place the ladder hooks over the window sill and climb down the ladder to safety.  A portable ladder, the Quickescape ladders are tested to support over 1000 lbs.and fit standard windowsill walls up to 10" thick. There are easy to install or remove standoffs for each rung: standoffs give more stability while allowing flexibility to avoid a variety of wall obstructions or hazards. For example, if there is a lower floor window located directly below the designated egress (escape) window and the path of deployed escape ladder will goe along that wall. For this situation, prepare the ladder in advance by removing the standoffs that would hit the window, thus avoiding breaking the glass. The ladder is made from 18 gauge steel with a 2/0 double loop chain in red and gray. There is a life time warranty.
  • Quickescape 20 foot emergency escape ladders. Weight: about 22 lbs. Each ladder is identical in construction to the Quickescape 12 foot ladders. The difference is that this ladder is made for escape from a 3rd story. Choose either the Quickescape with plastic covering of the chains or the Bold QuickEscape Fire Ladder, No Sleeves, 20FT with plain chains.
  • ResQLadder® Emergency Escape Ladder, 35 feet long. Weight is about 24 lbs. This fire ladder is made for escapes from the 4th floor. Red and white in color, the gauge of the ladder is 18 gauge and 20 gauge. Again the ladder supports up to 1000 lbs. total and has removable stand-offs. Choose from a 35 Ft ResQLadder® Emergency Escape Ladder with plastic covering the chains or Bold FL35 Res Q Ladder, No Chain Sleeves, 35 Feet.
  • ResQLadder® Emergency Escape Ladder, 50 feet long. Weight is about 38 lbs.  This ladder is made for escapes from the 5th through 6th floor. Red and white in color, the gauge of the ladder is 18 gauge and 20 gauge. Again the ladder supports up to 1000 lbs. total and has removable stand-offs. Choose from a 50 Ft ResQLadder® Emergency Escape Ladder with no covering the chains or a 50 Ft ResQLadder® Emergency Escape Ladder with plastic on the chains. Plastic sleeves mean less likelihood of the chain tangling during deployment and more comfortable climbing down.

Remember that along with having escape ladders available, you need to have fire exits marked as well as the locations of the ladders marked. Smoke hoods are often recommended for those who are in rooms without windows with direct access to those with fire ladders. Install and regularly test smoke alarms.

Note: Due to Liability Issues This Product is Returnable Only In Event of a Defect Verified by the Manufacturer.

Thank you for your question. We do discount larger quantities of ladders, smoke hoods and most of our products.

Sincerely,

Barbara

 

How to Wash and Dry Snugglewool and Mediwool Baby Blankets, Mattress Pads, Lap Robes, etc.

by Barbara 25. September 2011 12:24

Question about best way to wash and dry Snugglewool products such as mattress pads, baby blankets, wheelchair cushion covers, etc.

Q: "Please let me know how to wash and dry Snugglewool products. I don't want to ruin my new Mediwool queen mattress pad. Thanks Judy.

Answer: We recommend a mild detergent or one specifically for use with wool. Since lambswool is naturally disinfecting, you don't need warm water. or heated drying.  All SnuggleWool and Mediwool products are packed with washing instructions. Machine wash on a gentle cycle in cool water with a mild detergent. Fluff in the dryer on an air setting and then air dry.  Lambswool also resists the development of bacteria and dust mites. We do not recommend washing with items. The friction and agitation of the wool fibers against the other clothing will cause more clumping of the wool which means less "fluffiness."

Thank you for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara

by Barbara 16. July 2011 11:34

Question about the Boing Skin Urethane Foam Corner Strip Slim C Yellow 2/BX

Q: "We have exposed 1 inch poles in our warehouse. Lighting in the warehouse is not the best. Can this be used to cover the poles to keep obvious to our employees and keep both them and the poles from damage? How do we install the strips? Thanks. Mark."

Answer: This product was made especially for uses such as you describe. The interior of the pad is curved like a C so it is easily attached to the pole material with GE Silicone I, II or the new II fast set adhesive. You can also use these strips on any one inch diameter parts of your forklift truck.  Each strip is 72 inches long by 1 inch wide and 5/8 inch thick at the thickest point in the middle of the strip. Skin urethane foam has a dense shock absorbing inner layer covered by a tough outer layer. The outer layer is resistant to UV, abrasion, moisture and bacteria. 

We sell the Slim C, the Slim V, Flat Pads, Wall Guard Pads and other Boing products in quantities to meet your need. The minimum purchase quantity varies from product to product. For example, the smallest number of Slim C urethane foam cushioning available is in this quantity of 2. Colors include, ivory, yellow, black and gray.

Thanks you for your question.

Lambswool Dusters Made in Canada Are Fully Washable and Attract Dust

by Barbara 9. June 2011 08:30

Question about the lambswool dusters, the Lambswool Duster, 10 inch Head, with Standard Handle and the Lambswool Duster w/ Telescope Handle, Assorted Colors

Q: "Are these made in China? I prefer to buy products either Made in USA or Made in Canada. Also are these washable? And are they sturdy enough for a cleaning service? Thanks. Sue."

Answer: These are made in Canada with Canadian wool. Our  primary customers are large hotel and motel chains, cleaning and janitorial services and private companies who have their own cleaning and maintenance personnel. Individuals often purchase these dusters along with our Bona Kemi and Sh-Mop products if they do their own housecleaning.

The standard handle duster has a sturdy plastic handle that is 16 inches long, 26 inches with the 10 inch lambswool dusting head. We buy these in cartons of assorted colors as we do the lambswool duster with telescoping handle. Each has an end loop for hanging or you can thread a cord through for hanging if you choose.

The extended length, telescoping duster has the same 10 inch long lambswool duster head. The handle locks at the length you prefer. The handle extends to 42 inches from 32 inches.

Before using, spin the duster between your hands to open up the wool. Repeat after cleaning to shake out dust after use. When necessary, wash in warm, soapy water. When dry, spin duster handle to regain fullness. Lambswool attracts and retains dust: synthetics often do not.

Thanks for your question.
Sincerely,
Barbara

Grip On Helps Prevent Falls on Smooth Concrete Floors. Not Effective on Epoxy Coated or Polyaspartic Coated Floors.

by Barbara 25. May 2011 07:36

Question about using Grip On® with a epoxy coated concrete floor or polyaspartic flooring coating.

Q: " I need to put an anti-slip coating on epoxy coated concrete flooring or polyaspartic coated flooring I install. Will Grip On® work?" Thanks. Sam

Answer: I contacted the manufacturer for clarification on this interesting question. The answer is no. For an anti-slip floor, Grip On will not work after epoxy or polyaspartic coatings are applied to concret: the coatings fill the pores. What Grip On anti-slip floor solution does is fill in the pores invisibly to increase the resistance to slipping and falling. So Grip On® would not work in your situation. Also if you paint a concrete floor, the same situation occurs as the paint fills the pores.

One solution to your problem is to add a color dye to the concrete and use a water based xylene sealer: you want nothing to seal the pores of the floor as then it cannot be treated with Grip On®. 

Why does Grip On work? All natural materials such as concrete, ceramic, marble, granite, terrazzo, quarry tile, slate, porcelain tile and bathtubs have natural voids in them. The larger the void, the more the surface of that material is slip resistant. This void creates a tread for you to walk on.  Ceramic or glazed tile, as well as porcelain, are coated to create a shiny finished look to a floor or fixture. These coatings fill in the natural voids up to 70%. When you walk on the dry surface, you would not notice that the voids are filled. But, when the surface is wet, the water fills in the remaining 30% of the void and that is why a floor becomes slippery not allowing any space between the water and the bottom of your foot creating a hydroplane effect. Grip On® microscopically treats the surface of your floor or fixture in a way that brings back the natural void via the treads in the surface material. So, when a floor or bathtub is wet, it still allows you to feel surefooted. Grip On® Anti Slip Solution is a clear, chemical treatment that increases the co-efficient of friction and the safety of the surface when wet.

We sell Grip On® in various sizes from 4 oz bottles to drums. Among the sizes are

We also sell Grip On in a pallet of four 55 gallon barrels. With the drums, the lid stays on. What you do is purchase a vacuum or hose pump from your local hardware store. The lid has one 4 inch hole and one 2 inch hole so you can pump the Grip On out into containers you use for your applicators for spreading.

Grip On®'s Simple Application Instructions:
  1. Clean and rinse area.
  2. Pour Grip On™ on surface.
  3. Mop or sponge area liberally.
  4. Let stand for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Rinse off with clean water.
  6. Area is now ready to use.

After treatment, do not wax. Wax fills in the enhanced read created by the Grip On™ treatment. Reapply every 2 years for bath and shower areas. Reapply every year for traffic areas.

Additional Questions and Answers about Grip On®:

Q: How does Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution work?
A: Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution is a process that increases the coefficient of friction on a tile floor or a porcelain bathtub. This is not a coating that can wear off: this is a process that creates a tread design on the mineral surface itself.

Q: Does the treated surface look or feel any different?
A: There is no discernible change in appearance. However, when wet, the feeling is SAFE!

Q: Why is there a need for Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution?
A: Slip/Fall accidents are the nation's #2 accidental killer. Over 9 million disabling injuries every year. Business insurance rates are skyrocketing. Increases of 25% annually are common.

Q: How long is the Grip On® guarantee?
A: 2 years for bathtubs and showers. 1 year for traffic areas.

Q: Is Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution difficult to apply?
A: No, Grip On® is easy to apply. One worker can treat hard surfaces at the rate of 600 square feet per hour, per worker. Bathtubs require less than 10 minutes with no strenuous work.

Q: Does Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution kill germs?
A: The chemical in Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution is known to inhibit bacterial and fungi growth and to kill some bacteria and fungi. Test data is being gathered on germ killing and will be available at a later date.

Q: If my floor is sealed, can I still use Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution?
A: Yes, Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution works through most floor seals and effectively applies the “invisible tread.” Two applications may be required for sealed floors.

Q: What if there is grease on my floor?
A: Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution loosens grease, making it easier to remove any grease on your floor. More than one application may be required. Once again, it may take more than one application. Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution will loosen all hardened grease on your floor.

Q: Can I wax over the Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution?
A: NO. Wax fills in the “invisible tread” that Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution placed on your floor. We recommend a dry buff to bring up the shine.

Q: Is Grip On® Anti-Slip Solution dangerous?
A: The level of danger is similar to household bleach. Similar cautions are on each bottle. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid eye contact. Wear rubber gloves. Use in ventilated area. Can be fatal if swallowed. Do not use on wood, vinyls or plastics

Real Lambswool Wheelchair Cushion Cover and Arm Rest Covers Superior to Synthetic for Comfort

by Barbara 15. May 2011 09:17

Question about the Lambswool Covers for Wheelchair Arm Rests and for Lambswool Wheelchair Covers for Wheelchair Cushions.

Q: "I want my mother's wheelchair to be as comfortable as possible. What is the advantage of real lambswool over synthetic? How large are your Rittenhouse Mediwool lambs wool arm rest covers and cushion covers? Thanks. Sandy.

Answer:  The natural lambswool products we sell are made from a very soft lambswool sliver knit into a polyester backing. That means that the products are machine washable. They can be air dried or dried on delicate in your dryer.  Natural lambswool is absorbent yet keeps arms cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold weather. The lambs wool helps to prevent pressure sores as well as making the surfaces more comfortable for arms and backside. Lambswool is a naturally disinfecting fiber so heat is not needed to disinfect. Plus lambswool resists bacteria and dust mite development. Artificial lambwool does not have these qualities. The lambswool looks and feels like a one inch lamb pelt without the problems associated with that, i.e. no machine washing and a lamb dies to give the pelt.  Mediwool merino wool products by Rittenhouse Industries and Snugglewool are Made in USA.

The cushion cover measures 19 inches by 19 inches so it fits most wheelchair cushions. The arm rest covers measure 18 inches long by 8 inches around and are secured by velcro strieach velcro closure is 4 inches in from the end. The closure strip itself is 3/4 inch wide and about 1 5/8 inches long. The strip attaches to a sewn on strip that is about 1.25 inches long. That means you get the full 8 inches for the wheelchair arm rest.

If you have more questions, please contact Safe Home.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely,

Barbara
