As weather experts have been stating for a day now, the calendar may have turned to October, but winter storms are already heating up. The Northern Plains, especially west of Casper WY could be socked with 12-18” of snow between now and Friday, with anywhere from 3” to 12” within a 100 mile radius of Casper.

Let’s face it: most of the country is used to snow. Chicagoans remember 2011 when 22” fell in just 12 hours, the blizzard of 1888 when up to 58” of snow fell, and the Storm of the Century in 1993 among others.

But what happens when just a little bit of that “s” word begins to affect everyday life, and furthermore causes injury? Snow can be a beautiful weather phenomenon, but when it begins to stick on sidewalks and pavement, causing ice to form it can be dangerous.

As luck would have it, a company in a Chicago suburb has successfully designed and manufactured an inexpensive product that works to prevent persons(s) from slips and falls while walking on snow and ice.

Named Handi-Treads, they are made from 100% aluminum preventing the tread from rusting in harsh weather conditions and standing up to whatever is thrown at it. Unlike non slip grit tape or grip paint, treads require little maintenance and last three times as long, saving you annual replacement monies and giving you peace of mind. Installed in just seconds, treads are available in seven stock sizes with custom sizes available.
