Highlight Objects & Hazards with Tenura Daily Living Aids

Tenura’s range of anti-slip and grip enhancing products are designed to create independence around the home. With their excellent anti slip qualities, they make day to day tasks easier and more manageable by increasing grip and comfort.

Additionally, their vivid shades of blue, red and yellow allow Tenura daily living aids to stand out and be more noticeable, particularly in environments with more neutral décor. With this feature they can be used to highlight important objects or potential hazards.

The colours can be beneficial in the following ways:

The lightest colour and in times of low lighting or even when it is dark, yellow is the most visible. Tenura products in yellow would be ideal to use at night, such as coasters for glasses of water and yellow mats for essential items such as glasses or hearing aids.

Red

Corner_Table_Mat_RedThe colour Red commands attention, whether it be for warnings and danger or for something important you didn’t want to miss. Resting pans or dishes that have just come off the stove or out of the oven on a red Tenura mat will help to warn yourselves and others that the pan is still hot, and much like silicone trivets, it will protect the surface while the pan or dish cools. It is safe to do this as Tenura mats are heat resistant up to 250°C.

Blue

Blue is a cool, calming colour and due to this is suitable for use in places of rest such as bedrooms and living rooms. As it can provide contrast to lighter wooden furniture, placing items upon them means that it is easier to spot.

Using Tenura daily living aids to organise your Grip_Roll_20_1_Redprep area, whether it be for organising utensils, prepped food or both, you can create a contrast of colours to help you identify items much quicker. Red mats can also be used to signify sharp knives or electrical items.

The Tenura Grip Strips and Rolls are also ideal kitchen aids. They are available in both blue and red, ideal for adding enhanced grip, but also can be a useful reminder that blue handles are safe, and those that are red could possibly still be hot.
