Tenura self adhesive non slip silicone reels now available!

Tenuras latest addition to the daily living aids range is self-adhesive non-slip silicone reels. This material is our faithful non-slip silicone with an added bonus of a strong self adhesive backing, allowing it to be applied to an area as an effective semi-permanent non-slip surface that will not only provide excellent non-slip properties, but will not damage any items placed upon it.

The adhesive backing was an additional feature people have enquired about online, at meetings and exhibitions. Now Tenura are happy to make this available and supply an inexpensive, self-adhesive non-slip surface.

It can also be applied to handheld objects to increase grip and comfort. Self-adhesive silicone reels decrease the risk of spills and prevent stains from objects resting on its surface. Thanks to the easy peel away backing, this material can be applied quickly and neatly, creating an aesthetically pleasing non-slip surface.

They are highly versatile, due to you being able to cut pieces to size using scissors, making them ideal for when a non-slip surface is required.

The aforementioned cut to size versatility makes it perfect for areas where multiple or specific shape applications may be needed.

Once dry the materials non-slip properties will return, so we recommend allowing the surface to dry properly before using it.

Tenura self-adhesive non-slip reels are 1m x 20cm giving you a large amount of material to work with for your money. They are 0.3mm thick and available in blue.

Tenura self adhesive non-slip reels can be purchased directly through our website, along with the rest of Tenuras range of daily living aids. You can get free shipping on all Tenura products by spending over £50 or more!

Tenura: Postage Cost Change

It comes to that time again were we have had to alter our postage prices, although this time it has pros as well as cons.

Royal Mail have upped their postage costs, causing us to change again!

However, instead of two different charges, we now have one flat rate, meaning you will save a bit on smaller orders under 1kg, unless your orders are over £50, then it will be sent out to you free of charge!

Postage by Royal Mail First Class is now £2.50.

While this may benefit some, we do apologise to others who will be adversely affected.
