LHR Marine is proud to distribute the innovative and renowned SAFEGUARD® Technology Anti-Slip products.  Since SAFEGUARD® Technology’s founding by Merv Litzow in 1992, they have been dedicated to the design, development and manufacture of superior safety products for the prevention of slips and falls.  Litzow, who has an extensive background in the chemical industry, has translated his unique knowledge and experience into the development of a top-notch safety product line.

Throughout the years, SAFEGUARD® Technology has consistently been on the cutting edge of anti-slip technology: from its industry-leading Hi-Traction Step & Walkway Covers, to its innovative Hi-Traction Glo Series in five new photoluminescent colours.  SAFEGUARD® Technology’s initial product line utilized either an 18-gauge stainless steel base or an 18-gauge G90 galvanized steel base, for which it was awarded two patents.  In an effort to provide a low-cost, light-weight alternative to steel products, SAFEGUARD® Technology introduced Pultruded FRP (Fiberglass) in 1998, followed by vinyl with self-adhesive backing in 2002.

SAFEGUARD® Technology Hi-Traction Step & Walkway Covers are designed to outperform all other products in the industry with their overall effectiveness, ease of installation and lifetime durability.  In 1996, a major product development program culminated in the introduction of Hi-Traction Step & Walkway Covers that provide an additional safety feature — “glow-in-the-dark” properties.  The Hi-Traction Glo Covers, with five new colours introduced in 2010, illuminate the edges of walkways and stairs, providing a safe egress during power outages and emergency evacuations.  SAFEGUARD® Technology’s other industry-leading product innovations include Hi-Traction Pipe & Cable Covers and Descriptive Markings or Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) symbols that are available on SAFEGUARD® Technology’s entire product line.

In 2010, SAFEGUARD® Technology highlighted its Direct Gritting capabilities to customer-supplied prefabricated parts, and introduced Safety Track® Anti-Slip Tape in a variety of grit levels and colours.  Also in 2010, SAFEGUARD® Technology started its Quick Ship standard inventory program, which is comprised of SAFEGUARD® Technology Hi-Traction Step Covers in the most popular sizes, grits and colours. Quick Ship standard inventory can be shipped within 48 hours to help distributors and consumers with immediate Anti-Slip Solutions.  SAFEGUARD® Technology Covers are utilized worldwide and have been considered to be the first choice for application in the offshore oil and gas industry.

In addition to supplying Anti-Slip Solutions, LHR Marine’s reputation for selling Mooring Equipment is well known internationally and they also represent top quality manufacturers of: Working at Height Equipment, Marine Safety Products, Lifting & Handling Equipment, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Workwear and Industrial Supplies.  LHR Marine’s recent successes include global agreements with major subsea shipping companies and international mooring companies which have been established from their service provision for over the last ten years from Aberdeen, Scotland and Perth, Australia.
