Non Slip Fabric
Having older relatives that live alone can be a concern, but Tenura’s products are designed to make daily tasks easier and less hazardous. This blog is all about which of our products can be the most effective and affordable.
Aqua Safe Anti Slip Strips
Aqua safe anti slip strips and have a strong adhesive bond, this non abrasive material is soft on skin yet durable when applied. To ensure there is an effective bond you will need to clean the surface, we recommend an alcohol based cleaner (Heskin’s IPA Cleaner) in comparison to a cream cleaner; this is because cream cleaners leave behind a residue causing the application to fail. This product comes in 2 shaped (discs or strips) these prevent slipping in the bath or shower or for extra support when moving around.
This product can be used;
- On tiled flooring
- Bath and shower trays
Anti Grip slip strips and rolls
Anti slip grip and rolls are available in large rolls or pre cut strips coming in a range of sizes. They can be used all around the house where extra grip is needed. Easy to apply, you simply grab the roll (and cut to size if needed) or strips and then wrap them around the surface then with the silicone grip they hold together for easy application and removal.
You can apply these to;
- Door handles for extra support.

Table and floor mats
Tablemats are made from silicone and create a strong bond to hard surfaces preventing any unwanted movement. The table and floor mats have an adhesive like quality making it easy to apply and remove from hard surfaces without leaving a sticky residue behind. They are easy to clean either with warm soapy water or in the dishwasher, once dried they are ready to use again and again.
These can be used;
- Under a chopping board when preparing your favourite meal preventing slips especially when using a sharp knife

On a side table, for example next to the front door, with the table mats bright colours it makes it easier to find where to put your personal belongings down, for those with visual impairments. Place your keys, phone or wallet on the mat preventing things from falling off.
Anti Microbial Moulded Cup Holders
Moulded cup holders are similar to regular coasters however these fit to the bottom of your cup creating an anti slip base.

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, 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.
The 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
These 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.
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
There 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.
Stiff 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
Kneeling on hard surfaces, while not only extremely uncomfortable to the point of painful, could potentially cause long term damage on your knees. 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.

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.
Recently, 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.
Tenura 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.

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 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.

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.
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).
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!”.
We always love to go on about the versatility of our non slip fabric, it’s grippy, it’s cushiony…. you get the idea, it’s a great material to have around the house, and is extremely effective as rug underlay, so that once, albeit beautiful, but slippy rug, is now just a beautiful rug, and you can enjoy the feel of it under your feet without the fear that you may be going floor surfing.
Tenura non slip fabric offers a durable and effective to solution to the slipping rug problem as non slip rug underlay, just lay it down, throw your rug over the top and it will stay firm.
Right now, our non slip fabric has 25% off the RRP, making it even more cost effective to use as non slip rug underlay.
Are you looking for a soft anti-slip material?
Tenura has created a non-slip fabric designed to be just that, as it is soft, anti-slip and has the added benefit of being waterproof too. Tenura non-slip fabric is excellent when used as a cushioned material to place items on. It can protect the surface as well as the object placed in it. Due to its soft and flexible design, it can be used all around the home.
Tenura non-slip fabric comes in rolls of black, beige or white, which can be cut to size easily to suit the various places around your home or office. Many of our customers have used Tenura non-slip fabric to use as a draw or shelf liner, a non-slip base for a vase or other delicate, expensive ornaments. It helps to keep your belongings safe when you may experience unwanted movement. Such as when you are travelling with a motorhome and you need to keep your crockery intact for the journey.
A great technique to help your crockery arrive safely is by making makeshift placemats. Another great use of Tenura non-slip fabric is as a car drape for a mechanic. The possibilities are virtually endless.
As mentioned, Tenura non-slip fabric is also waterproof, so it can be used on boats as a non-slip surface near water.
Tenura non-slip fabric is machine washable, so if it becomes dirty, it can be cleaned in the washing machine and will come out as good as new.
Tenura non-slip fabric rolls are available in sizes of 50.8cm x 182cm and are available to buy from the Tenura website.
Our non-slip fabric is one of our most popular daily living aids, and with its versatility, it’s no surprise.
Tenura non-slip fabric is made of non-slip foam, bonded onto a polyester mesh, which gives it great non-slip qualities on both sides. The polyester mesh means that the non-slip material is waterproof, which opens up the uses of the fabric and makes it easy to clean. The non-slip fabric does not stretch due to its reinforced skeleton. It can be cut down to any shape and size to suit any object or surface. The anti-slip fabric comes in three colours (black, white and beige).
Tenura Non-slip Fabric Under A Keyboard
At Tenura we use it for all sorts of applications in the office. Many members of staff have the non-slip fabric under their keyboards to stop unwanted movement. The non-slip fabric acts as a rest for wrists as it is a comfortable cushion, which is very welcome after days typing, like blog posting days. Many of us spend a lot of time on computers and Tenura non-slip fabric can be beneficial to all.
Tenura Non-slip Fabric As Carpet/Rug Underlay
Carpet underlay is another excellent use for Tenura anti-slip fabric. Cut down the fabric and place it on the floor. Cover the fabric with the carpet. The anti-slip fabric keeps the rug in place and stops unwanted movement. For those with wooden floors, carpets/rugs with no non-slip fabric underneath can slip from under your feet. A fall to those who are elderly or disabled can have serious repercussions, so it is vital to keep them safe.

We have also seen the Tenura non-slip fabric being used in the following applications:
- Lining for draws, shelves and trays
- On sofas to keep cushions in place
