Power Generation

Power generation facilities are notorious for slip-and-fall accidents, particularly on ladders. We heard the benefits first-hand from one of our customers about how temporary tapes needed to be replaced two or three times in a five year period. Now they use our products and save a lot of rework time.

“Self-adhesive anti slip tapes used on ladder rungs have a limited life expectancy. On the average, anti-slip tapes have to be replaced two to three times in a five year time period.

The biggest advantage of utilizing Safeguard® Hi-Traction® Ladder Rung Covers is that they are permanent. Once installed, no one will have to scrape and replace worn off material. They can even be repainted (lightcoat) to make them look like new again. This is the best solution for all conditions, interior and exterior.

Thanks to Safeguard, they're saving us a lot of rework.”
