The mat has an anti-slip surface for increased safety.
Skokie, IL (PRWEB) February 23, 2016
NAPCO, a Skokie, Illinois based supplier of materials and equipment to bath, tile and counter resurfacers, is pleased to announce their anti-slip mat will be sold in Lowe’s home improvement stores. For use in bathtubs, the mats provide a fix for cosmetic damage while at the same time creating a slip-resistant surface. The mats should be in-store by the beginning of 2nd quarter, 2016.
The mats are currently sold through NAPCO’s customers; bathtub, tile, countertop resurfacers. Resurfacers, also called refinishers, turn damaged and ugly fixtures into like-new condition. The process is significantly less expensive than replacement. The mat is one of NAPCO’s more popular items. Now it will be available to the retail customer directly.
The mats to be sold in Lowe’s will provide retail customers an inexpensive fix for cosmetic defects on a bathtub floor. Bathtubs can get chipped or scratched through daily use. This frequently looks bad and can sometimes lead to further damage. The NAPCO mat will cover up these imperfections resulting in a more appealing fixture.
The mat is self-adhesive and therefore easy to apply. According to NAPCO owner, Steve Coven, “The mat is fairly rigid and therefore easy to apply. The aggressive adhesive we use means the mat should remain in place for many years to come.”
Coven went on, “The mat has an anti-slip surface for increased safety.” According to a 2008 study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 234,094 nonfatal injuries occur in U.S. bathrooms each year. Of those, two-thirds occur in the shower or bath. Again, according to Steve Coven, “The mat certainly won’t prevent all injuries, but should cut down on them.”
The product will initially be available in approximately 600 Lowe’s stores. The hope is it will eventually be for sale in all 1,840 U.S. Lowe’s home improvement stores. The mats are made in the USA at NAPCO’s plant in Skokie, IL.
