Safeguard now offers six different colors in the Hi-traction Glo Series, including the original Glo White. The latest additions to the line include two new safety colors and three new fluorescent colors:

• Glo Yellow
• Glo Lime
• Glo Orange
• Glo Pink
• Glo Green

The Hi-Traction Glo covers are made with a non-toxic, non-radioactive, photoluminescent pigment that is embedded in the surface and can be charged repeatedly throughout the life of the product. Descriptive markings and PPE (personal protective equipment) symbols can also be illuminated in the dark with Safeguard’s customizable HiGlo safety messages. By using a photoluminescent background, the message is visible after dark and during power outages, providing a safe egress during emergency evacuations.

Safeguard will also promote its new Quick Ship standard inventory program at Safety 2010, which is comprised of Safeguard® Hi-Traction anti-slip step covers in the most popular sizes, grits and colors. Standard inventory step covers can be shipped within 24 hours to help distributors and customers with their immediate anti-slip needs.

Also at the show, Safeguard’s new offering of Safety Track® anti-slip tapes will be on display. Safety Track® tapes offer cost-efficient, quick-fix anti-slip solutions for lower-traffic areas. The durable peel-and-stick backing adheres securely to steps, floors and walkways, making installation easy. Safety Track® anti-slip tapes are certified by the National Flooring Safety Institute and are available in various levels of coarseness and a variety of colors, and include glow-in-the-dark, resilient and conformable designs.
