Tenura Daily Living Aids on the Go

With summer coming up we can’t help but get out for the day and enjoy the sun! However while many of us are constantly on the go all year round for various reasons, some of us find seemingly simple tasks more challenging than others do. If these simple tasks become much more difficult than previous they can have a major detrimental impact on your fun or duties. With this blog post we are going to try and explain a few ways on how Tenura products can help make these everyday tasks easier.

The ranges of select Tenura products below are designed to make various simple tasks on the go feel like a breeze once again.

Tenura Cutlery Grips

Tenura cutlery grips Tenura cutlery grips, like the majority of Tenura products are produced from silicone. The main benefits of silicone is how well it grips and the comfort experienced whilst holding it. These features mean that you can take them anywhere with you. For example, if you’re going out for an expensive meal or just want to stop off somewhere for a spot of lunch they are perfect for popping on to your cutlery quickly and easily. If Tenura cutlery grips get dirty they can be easily washed with hot, soapy water or by popping them in the dishwasher and once dry they are then ready to use again. Cutlery grips are not exclusive for use with cutlery as you can also put them on pens and pencils, with a larger surface area to hold, it will become easier to write and draw, reducing if not eradicating discomfort.

Tenura cutlery grips are available in adult sizes and children sizes.

Non-Slip Fabric

Tenura non slip fabricThe Tenura Non-Slip Fabric is also beneficial when on the go. Made out of non-slip foam applied to a polyester mesh, this makes it a stable yet comfortable and cushioned non-slip material. This fabric is easy to cut making it easier to carry as you can then only take as much as you need. It has multiple purposes when on the go, it can be used as additional comfort when sitting on a bench whilst relaxing or having a picnic. Due to non-slip fabrics flexibility, it is easy to fold and carry in your bag. You could also find its benefits when having a picnic by using it on the table surface to place your food and drinks on for either a cleaner surface or to make everything less prone to slips. It is also suitable for resting your arms and elbows on to increase comfort.

Tenura non slip fabric is available in 3 colours.

Moulded Cup Holders

Tenura cup holderThese cup holders are made from silicone and work exactly as a coaster would but are designed to hold onto the base of your cup and create a portable anti-slip surface. Tenura moulded cup holders fit onto the bottom of your cup indiscreetly and with minimal effort. This makes it easier to place cups down without marking any surfaces and will prevent accidents if the surface is overly slippery. Silicone also has a high tolerance to heat so these anti-slip cup holders prevent any spillages created by unwanted movement and preventing marks and stains on table surfaces that could be caused by hot mugs and cups. These will be very useful at the family picnic or at the office for those busy workers who are always on the go! Once placed down Tenura moulded cup holders will ensure your drink does not spill, but are also easy to remove and wash ready for next time!

Tenura moulded cup holders are available to buy from the website in 3 colours.

Grip Aids for Tools During Maintenance and Repair Work

Good Afternoon folks and a happy new year to you all!

With the coming of the new year, we thought about how our products are used and the possibilities of where we could expand them too. One area in particular in working or personal life is full of areas where a strong anti slip surface or grip is needed is something we have never discussed in detail before, so we thought this was a good opportunity to do so.

Grips Aids for Tools for General maintenance and Repair Work

wrench copyThere are tonnes of tasks in the workplace and home which require the use of spanners, wrenches, screwdrivers and many other tools, to effectively tighten or loosen parts and a strong grip can often be required. These tasks can become pretty difficult for those with physical impairments, or when a particularly stiff bolt, nut or screw doesn’t want to budge. We think Tenura anti slip grip strips and rolls would work perfectly for as grip aids for tools. By using grip strips, or cutting strips from a roll and wrapping these around the handles of tools such as spanners, screwdrivers and pliers, you can dramatically increase the grip and comfort you have on them. This makes them much easier to twist, turn or lever to get tight or rusted nuts, bolts or screws loose and allow you to continue the maintenance of any machinery or appliance.

screwdriver in suti 2Stiff oil caps can also be a nightmare when trying to do routine maintenance on the car at home or in a garage. Without the use of a tool or protective layer, these can be hard to get off by hand. However, we thought about how this cap would fit nicely in our jar openers! By using Tenura jar openers on stiff caps and tops, you can effectively screw them open or closed without any pain or discomfort. Tenura jar openers are also very resistant to heat, allowing them to withstand temperatures of up to 250°C, making them ideal for use on warm or hot car parts.

Tenura Non Slip Fabric for Kneeling

Tenura non slip fabric is an ideal way to prevent this. By doubling over this Tenura non slip fabric, it will provide a comfortable cushion for you to work on without the worry of potential long term damage to your knees. This material is not only comfortable but non slip, so it will not move when you do in most cases and will keep your tools in position until you need them. It also raises them from the floor and keeps them away from all but deep puddles of water, oil or any other liquids. This material is also perfect when lying on the floor during maintenance to increase comfort and help extend the time you can spend working in a horizontal position. Tenura non slip fabric in most cases is also easily washed, meaning it can be used again and again without the danger of contamination.

By using Tenuras range of daily living aids, you can make tasks in all areas of life much easier, and prevent potential damage and injury at the same time.

Non Slip Fabric can be Used in Car Boots!

Non-Slip-Fabric-Rolls-with-

Tenura non slip fabric offers a comfortable and soft anti slip surface which can be used in many areas around the home such as on kitchen worktops, the dinner table and under rugs and carpet to prevent movement. Electricians, mechanics, daring DIY experts and any other professional tradesmen or women who require specialist tools but don’t want them moving around, potentially becoming damaged or lost, can also benefit from the use of non slip fabric.

 

boot empty copyRecently, a very clever lady who works alongside us at Tenura came up with a brilliant idea. When driving in general, unless your boot is very small or pretty full, things will always slip, slide and bang around which can not only cause damage and spillages and be very distracting and startling when you are trying to concentrate on the road and other drivers. Tenura Non slip fabric will help to prevent this  by allowing objects to sink into the material slightly, helping the material to form a non slip grip around the bottom and base of the material, helping to prevent objects from sliding around the boot or bumping into others causing possible damage.

boot3Tenura non slip fabric is a strong and durable material that possesses strong non slip properties and can be cut to size with just a pair of scissors. It can also be washed with ease and is completely waterproof, meaning any spills and stains with food, drink and many other liquids will not damage the material. allowing it to be used again and again. This makes this material very useful for areas exposed to water.

Tenura non slip fabric is available in 50.8cmx182cm rolls and in the following colours.

  • White
  • Black
  • Beige

Have a Sound Sleep with Tenura Non Slip Fabric!

Some mattresses seem to slide off bed bases, which can be a major inconvenience when getting in and out of bed, or changing the bed sheets, as this requires the mattress to be pushed or pulled back into place. Many mattresses are large and heavy, making them hard or impossible to manoeuvre.

For this issue, we have the answer.

Tenura non slip fabric can be placed underneath as a non slip mattress mat to help stop it sliding, by creating a non slip surface to prevent unwanted movement, helping enormously when trying to make the bed, as the mattress will stay still allowing you to work around it and without the hassle of it sliding from one side of the bed to the other.

Tenura-Non-Slip-Fabric-Rug-Underlay

Tenura non slip fabric is a soft and comfortable material. Commonly used in draws, cupboards or even as carpet underlay, this material allows objects to sink in slightly, creating a strong non slip grip around the object, making it a perfect fit for underneath a mattress. This material will help to stop all unwanted movement, and leave you with a comfy mattress and no problems, day or night!

We have non slip fabric in 3 neutral colours, beige, black and white. This will help you get the material which best suits you and will not stand out from the colours of your mattress/bed base, making the non slip material unnoticeable, while providing you with peace of mind.

Thousands of elderly people left struggling!

A new analysis conducted by the IAC (Independent Age Charity) and SSC (Strategic Society centre) has indicated that of the 2 million elderly people in England have difficulties with everyday tasks such as bathing, cooking and eating.

This is a major problem as these simple tasks are a necessity for many people. Many of Tenura’s products exist to tackle these exact problems. We created our cutlery grips and non abrasive anti slip bathroom stickers with these problems in mind, to help elderly, disabled or average people with everyday tasks making some tasks, which become harder with age less strenuous and stressful.

Tenura Bathroom Stickers applied to bath 

Slips and falls in a bath tub are a nightmare for any age group, but for those who are elderly and live on their own, it can be a real problem. Other solutions like bath mats can cause more problems than they solve, the mat can coil or lift, creating a lip that you could trip on, and this puts you in a position where a fall is a big possibility. Tenura thought about this problem for a long time, and decided that the best form of slip prevention in a bath or shower was one which would be stuck down permanently, with minimal raised edges, and could be cleaned easily. That way you don’t have the worry of the material becoming a trip hazard, and the issue of having to remove a mat every now and again to clean it, which can be a tedious task. This material is perfect for bare skin applications, as it is non-abrasive, meaning it will not damage bare skin, and will be comfortable underfoot.

Eating and cooking can be a real problem when you get older, as tasks which used to be simple can become a lot harder, such as opening jars and bottles. Even young and able-bodied people struggle to open jars and bottles. The pressure can sometimes be very high, so the lid or bottle cap is very tight. This makes opening the jar/bottle much harder, especially if you suffer from hand impairments such as arthritis or Parkinson’s disease.

This can be a big problem when this happens a large proportion of the time, as people cannot physically open something they may need to eat or drink. We understand the severity of this problem, and that’s why we created our grip enhancing bottle and jar openers, as they allow a better grip on the lids of jars and bottle tops, without having to exert too much force with your hands.

The elderly and people with hand impairments can find day to day tasks very difficult, and without the proper care or tools, they will continue to struggle. Tenura products offer a simple and cost effective solution to some of these problems, and we hope that they can help as much as possible,(source http://­www.­bbc.­co.­uk/­news/­health-30209059).

Tenura: Non Slip Fabric as Rug Underlay

Tenura Non Slip Fabric Rug Underlay

Wooden floors, they look amazing don’t they? I know most of you reading this now will have them somewhere in your homes, so do I, and I love it, but there is one problem, aside from things being dropped on it, is that it’s surface friction isn’t great when it comes in to contact with soft fibres, like socks, and, more importantly for the purpose of this post, rugs.

While kids love skidding about on wooden floors in their socks ( to be fair, so do I, even now at 29 ), people stood on rugs don’t, I don’t think at anytime while sliding on a rug, i’ve thought “hey, I feel like Aladdin!”.

Tenura: Non Slip Fabric

Tenura Non Slip Fabric

Our non slip fabric is one of our most popular items, and with it’s versatility, it’s no surprise.

Tenura non slip fabric is a non slip foam, bonded on to a polyester mesh, which gives it great non slip qualities on both sides, but won’t stretch due to the reinforced skeleton it has been applied to, yet it can be cut how you like to suit any object or surface.

We use it for all sorts of applications in the office, I currently have it under my keyboard to stop slippage and to give my wrists something comfortable to rest on, which is very welcome after a days typing. ( or typing out a blog post… )
