Tenura CupCaps: How to use them

tenura cupcapsWe understand that no one is a fan of spills and stains, and the potential danger that can occur from those spills. When a liquid hits any smooth surface, there is an instant possibility for an accident that can cause serious injury. Spills of cold liquids are one thing, but spills of hot liquids can be even more hazardous as spilling them can cause harm to your own skin or others around you.

Many individuals suffer from impairments such as Parkinson’s, Arthritis and several others that can disrupt daily living. Often times these disabilities can lead to spills that hinder the flow of everyday life. Tenura has constructed a range of CupCaps that will help to prevent those potentially hazardous spills. These caps will seal over the tops of cups, mugs and cans which helps to eliminate spillage or leaking of any kind. 

Tenura CupCaps are available in packs of two – each of which are of different sizes. Ones measures to be 2.3” in diameter and the other 3.1” in diameter.

Tenuras’ 3.1” CupCaps are designed to fit over most cups and mugs to create a seal over top, eliminating any liquids from leaking out of the container. This allows you to now drink from your cup or mug without the worry or hassle of spills. This cup cap is constructed from a flexible material that allows you to stretch and mold it over nearly any cup or mug of average size which makes them perfect for use on the go. Tenuras’ CupCaps are constructed with a small, anti-spill, valve in the center of the cap which allows for a straw to be placed through. The straw valve is ideal for children who cannot yet sip from a cup. CupCaps also aid in keeping your beverage fresher for a longer period of time. Tenura CupCaps are created to not let bacteria or fungi grow on them as they are constructed with an anti-microbial material. Cleaning Tenura CupCaps are as simple as applying a small amount of soap and water and giving it a good scrub to ensure that it stays clean and hygenic.

The only problem with cans is that they are not created to be resealed, which can lead to the spillage of those fizzy drinks. This can cause quite the sticky mess on your desk, equipment, or even paperwork. Spills can be triggered by those who suffer from unfortunate conditions such as Parkinson’s or Arthritis, or even from those who suffer from daily life impairments. Fortunately, Tenuras’ 2.3” CupCaps offers an ideal solution! Tenura CupCaps have been constructed to fit on nearly all cans of average size. They provide a seal unlike any other helping to eliminate those sticky spills that can damage your belongings. Tenuras’ stretchy CupCaps will easily flex to conform around the top of the can. Once your beverage is finished, the cap can easily be removed and cleaned with soap and water for future use.

Tenura CupCaps offer preventative action when it comes to spillage from liquids that can cause stains, harm to skin or damage to property. They allow for a smoother day to day life to those who may have physical disabilities while allowing the environment around them to stay cleaner and safer.

Tenura self adhesive non slip silicone reels are now available

Tenuras latest addition to the daily living aids range is self-adhesive non-slip silicone reels. This material is our faithful non-slip silicone with an added bonus of a strong self adhesive backing, allowing it to be applied to an area as an effective semi-permanent non-slip surface. This will not only provide excellent non-slip properties, but will not damage any items placed upon it.

The adhesive backing was an additional feature people have enquired about online, at meetings and exhibitions. Now we at Tenura are happy to make this available and supply an inexpensive, self-adhesive non-slip surface.

This material can be used in many domestic and industrial applications such as in tool boxes, workbenches, breakfast bars or side tables, both at home or desks in the office. It can also be applied to handheld objects to increase grip and comfort. Self-adhesive silicone reels decrease the risk of spills and prevent stains from objects resting on its surface. Thanks to the easy peel away backing, this material can be applied quickly and neatly, creating an aesthetically pleasing non-slip surface.

They are highly versatile. This is due to the ability of being able to cut pieces to specific sizes using scissors, making them ideal for when a non-slip surface is required.

The aforementioned cut-to-size versatility makes it perfect for areas where multiple or specific shape applications may be needed.

Like most of Tenura silicone non-slip and grip aids, Tenura self adhesive non-slip reels can be cleaned with a simple combination of hot water and soap, but will lose all non-slip properties whilst wet. Once dry the materials non-slip properties will return, so we recommend allowing the surface to dry properly before using it.

Tenura self-adhesive non-slip reels are 3.2ft x 7.8” giving you a large amount of material to work with for your money. They are 0.011” thick and available in blue.

Tenura self adhesive non-slip reels can be purchased directly through our website, along with the rest of Tenuras range of daily living aids. You can get free shipping on all Tenura products by spending over $40 or more!

Grip Aids for Tools During Maintenance and Repair Work

Good Afternoon folks and a happy new year to you all!

With the coming of the new year, we thought about how our products are used and the possibilities of where we could expand them too. There are areas in working or personal life where a strong anti slip surface or grip is needed and this is something we have never discussed in detail before, so we thought this was a good opportunity to do so.

Grips Aids for Tools for General maintenance and Repair Work

There are tons of tasks in the workplace and home which require the use of spanners, wrenches, screwdrivers and many other tools to effectively tighten or loosen parts and a strong grip can often be required. These tasks can become pretty difficult for those with physical impairments, or when a particularly stiff bolt, nut or screw doesn’t want to budge. We think Tenura anti slip grip strips and rolls would work perfectly for these kinds of tasks. By using grip strips, or cutting strips from a roll and wrapping these around the handles of tools such as spanners, screwdrivers and pliers, you can dramatically increase the grip and comfort you have on them. This makes them much easier to twist, turn or lever to get tight or rusted nuts, bolts or screws loose and allow you to continue the maintenance of any machinery or appliance.

Stiff oil caps can also be a nightmare when trying to do routine maintenance on the car at home or in a garage. Without the use of a tool or protective layer, these can be hard to get off by hand. However, we thought about how this cap would fit nicely in our jar openers! By using Tenura jar openers on stiff caps and tops, you can effectively screw them open or closed without any pain or discomfort. Tenura jar openers are also very resistant to heat, allowing them to withstand temperatures of up to 482°F, making them ideal for use on warm or hot car parts.

Tenura Non Slip Fabric for Kneeling

Kneeling on hard surfaces, while not only extremely uncomfortable to the point of painful, could potentially cause long term damage on your knees. Tenura non slip fabric is an ideal way to prevent this. By doubling over this Tenura non slip fabric, it will provide a comfortable cushion for you to work on without the worry of potential long term damage to your knees. This material is not only comfortable but non slip, so it will not move when you do in most cases and will keep your tools in position until you need them. It also raises them from the floor and keeps them away from all but deep puddles of water, oil or any other liquids. This material is also perfect when lying on the floor during maintenance to increase comfort and help extend the time you can spend working in a horizontal position. Tenura non slip fabric in most cases is also easily washed, meaning it can be used again and again without the danger of contamination.

By using Tenuras range of daily living aids, you can make tasks in all areas of life much easier, and prevent potential damage and injury at the same time.

Welcoming into our range, Children’s Utensil grips!

Utensil grips are a handy addition to day to day life by providing an enhanced surface area around knives, forks, pens, pencils, toothbrushes and many other items, making them easier for daily use. Utensil Grips are perfect for those who suffer from impairments to grip. By increasing the surface area on the utensil, you can decrease the amount of grip required, helping to decrease strain on muscles when trying to grip small objects. However, these products are sized for adult hands, which may prove difficult for children to use.

This presented us with a dilemma. How good is a daily living aid if it can’t cater to everybody’s needs? This brought us to the product we are mentioning for the first time, Tenura children’s Utensil grips!

Tenura children’s utensil grips, like their bigger counterpart, also provide an enhanced surface area allowing children with impairments to be able to use utensils easier without having to accommodate a large Utensil grip. Children’s Utensil grips are 98mm in size and weigh 45g per sheaf. This is a lot lighter than our adult versions. Utensil grips are made from a strong antimicrobial silicone, designed to be durable and prevent the harboring and spread of bacteria.

Utensil grips are easily applied and can be washed by hand or via dishwasher. These are perfect for big industries like charities or organisations who may have a large turnaround of people and don’t have time necessary to clean them all by hand.

Tenura Children’s Utensil Grips come in three vibrant colours options, red, blue and grey. Utensil grips can be purchased directly through our website and come in packs of two. By spending $40 on our website and we will ship your order free of charge. For further queries, please use the contact form or live chat on our site!
