The Ice Winters seem to have intensified over the last couple of years

 

Don’t allow climate conditions to limit your winter activities. Go out and play with your kids. Don’t wait days to grab something from the supermarket. Let’s worry less about a lawsuit because one of your employees or students was injured on the company or school property. Build your confidence and enjoy the outdoors in the winter.

The purpose of this product is to eliminate individuals suffering slip and fall injuries on the snow and ice during winter. These slip and falls can lead to injuries ranging from fractures, neck and back injuries, to traumatic brain injuries. All from black ice, frozen snow, or snow covered ice.
