Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
This August, Umbrellabagger.com announces the arrival of new Automatic Wet Umbrella Wrappers. The unique umbrella bagging units are already being used in storefronts and hotels throughout the Miami area, keeping entryways and lobby floors safe from rainwater puddles and visitor accidents.
As hurricane season ushers unpredictable weather towards South Florida, businesses are responding by actively preparing for inclement weather. The condition and safety of floor surfaces is a high priority, particularly as businesses maintain normal operating hours while weather becomes stormy and fierce.
When it comes to accident prevention, Miami businesses focus on keeping floor surfaces clean, dry, and safe. Slip and fall accidents are a leading cause for liability, costing American businesses more than $13 billion in 2010 alone, as reported by the Liberty Mutual Workplace Safety Index. The unpredictable wind and rain of hurricane season only heightens the risk of slips and falls, motivating business owners to invest heavily in disaster response training, supplemental maintenance crews, and additional safety products that control liquid accumulation.
Traditionally, business owners have looked to commercial-grade floor mats as a means of preventing liquid accumulation, puddles, and slippery floors. And while floor mats are highly effective in drying shoes and preventing slips, they do little to control the mess created by the most common rainy-day accessory: The umbrella.
Without a place to stow their wet umbrella, guests carry rainwater past the entry-mat “safe zone” and across smooth entry floors. Puddles then form in unlikely places, posing a serious slip-and-fall risk for which businesses can be liable.
South Florida business owners know that rainy days and umbrellas go hand-in-hand, driving many local storefronts and hotels to invest in wet umbrella bag dispensers this summer. Starting in August, Umbrellabagger.com will carry a new generation of umbrella wrappers designed to automatically stow wet umbrellas in one fluid motion.
The company believes “safety products must be convenient and user-friendly,” otherwise visitors do not use them, and they provide no real benefit. By wrapping umbrellas automatically, the new Automatic Wet Umbrella Wrappers promise a high degree of convenience that ultimately leads to greater usage and facility safety.
Businesses are invited to log-on to Umbrellabagger.com to shop Automatic Wet Umbrella Wrappers, now available in single and double dispenser models. For product information and order assistance, call Umbrella Bagger customer services at 1-855-328-8100.
