Since launching the Handi-Treads product in the United States during the late 1980’s, non slip treads have become somewhat of a necessity for preventing slips and falls anywhere (home, business, industrial area) anytime (hot summer days, winter storms, etc). Hundreds of thousands of these treads have been sold to home and business owners alike, trying to reduce unnecessary injury.

As sales began to pick up and refinements were made, people who bought them began to slowly spread the word about the product and how it’s helped them in daily life. Again more refinements and design changes were made to configure the tread to what it is today.

Sales began to really pick up in the last decade when multiple size and color choices were offered as a stock product (and not custom), removing any limits set to customers who couldn’t use the standard size. Not long after, potential customers outside the United States began to take notice of our product via online searches, specifically Canada.

Sadly, high shipping costs deter many customers who can utilize the non slip treads which forces them to look elsewhere.

Until now.

Through a partnership with Amazon Canada, non slip treads will be sold in kits of 5-and-10 packs via Amazon’s FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) program. What does this mean? Simply put, it will allow Canadian customers to finally purchase the aluminum non slip treads without paying an arm and a leg for shipping. Amazon will stock this product in a warehouse of their choosing, which opens the door for a 2 day shipping average anywhere in Canada. This partnership will now cut down both the shipping cost and transit time – the two biggest factors when making a purchase.

Our non slip treads will be sold as kits compromising 3 or 5 treads, screws, and instructions to make installing the treads a breeze. Those north of the border no longer have to worry about high costs or long waits.

The Hand-Ramp FBA program is slated to launch near the end of November. For more information, please call 847-247-2351.
