Charleston, SC (PRWEB) July 12, 2006
Skamper-Ramp®, dba Skamper Industries, LLC was selected as one of the Top 50 Products of 2006 by readers of Pool & Spa News magazine.
The patented, polypropylene water rescue device for pets and animals prevents drowning by allowing them to exit the water on their own. It is available in two sizes, Skamper-Ramp for animals up to 45 lbs., and Skamper-Ramp Big Dog™, for pets up to 90 lbs. or for use with most boats and docks.
Pool & Spa News is recognized as one of the leading pool industry trade magazines with over 16,000 paid subscribers across the United States. Each year the publication selects the 50 products receiving the highest number of product information requests to be featured in a special “Readers Choice” showcase. Skamper-Ramp was first honored with this selection in 2004 and now again in 2006.
Skamper-Ramp has also received national product recognition in articles and features in newspapers across the country and on such nationally televised programs as Good Morning America, The Early Show, and Animal Planet. It was selected as one of the Top 10 Innovations of 2005 by the Charleston Regional Business Journal. The combined effect of these elements was significant in building consumer and retail awareness and credibility in the pool and pet industries.
Pool owners make strong Skamper-Ramp candidates since the product prevents animal drowning deaths in general, regardless of whether or not the owner has a pet. This eliminates the unpleasant surprise of finding dead frogs, possums, etc, in their pools.
