Tenura Grip Rolls

Have you ever been in a situation were having a bit more grip would make something so much more easier?

Tenura grip rolls are made from 100% silicone, with no filler, meaning it is completely non toxic, washable and heat resistant up to 482°F.

The silicone has an adhesive affect, meaning it will stick to anything it is applied to, and upon removal will leave no residue.

The rolls can be cut to size for your preffered use.

Grip Roll Applications

Tenura grip rolls can be used in a variety of applications. Below we have listed and detailed a few day to day uses.


Doors are opened by either a handle or a knob. The former can sometimes have right angle edges that make them very uncomfortable to use, and the latter do not have a large enough surface to aquire a good grip. By wrapping Tenura grip strips around either of those, you can increase comfort and grip, as well as prevent the cold travelling to your hands in the winter months.

Draw Liners

How To Use Tenura Cutlery Grips

Tenura cutlery grips create an enlarged surface area around objects which would otherwise be small and hard to pick up and use. The silicone handle allows objects to be placed inside two slits in the middle of the material, allowing the products to sit around the utensils neatly. The large surface area this product provides helps ease pressure and strain on joints and muscles, allowing day to day tasks to be performed much easier without discomfort or pain.

Dining and Food Preparation

Food preparation can be hard for those who suffer from hand impairments. Grip can be massively affected leaving you struggling to use basic utensils and finding it hard to prepare a basic meal. By applying Tenura cutlery grips, you can increase the surface area of the object and make it easier to grip and hold. This makes jobs such as cutting and mashing food easier and less painful. Cutlery grips can be cleaned simply with hot, soapy water.­ This will allow you to keep a strong standard of hygiene and prevent bacteria from conta­minating anything which comes into contact with it. After food has been prepared, comes the most important part of the meal, eating. However, this can be more work than the preparation, especially for those who suffer from arthritis and other condi­tions. Items like knives and forks can be very difficult to hold and use effectively. This can make meal times take much longer than it would normally or be a very painful process, all of this effort to simply feed yourself can be very tiresome, and make meal times a burden. By using Tenura cutlery grips, you can make utensils like knives and forks much easier to hold and use,­ while re-leaving stress and strain on joints and muscles by grasping a bigger, more comfortable surface area.

Pens & Pencils

Pens and pencils are often used in day to day life. Writing is an essential skill that is needed almost all the time. Unfortunately for those who suffer from arthritis and similar diseases, writing can be a painful and strenuous experience, and is sometimes not worth the effort.

Cutlery grips create a much bigger surface area that is more natural to hold and comfortable to grip. This can make writing easier and will lessen the strain on joints and muscles which could cause discomfort to the person writing.

Tooth Brushes

As we were taught as kids, brushing your teeth is a vital part of day to day life. Without clean teeth, nasty cavities and holes will start to form. This can lead to painful toothache or expensive surgery to get it corrected. However, using a toothbrush requires a precise amount of pressure and movement when in the mouth, without this control, you could start to smack your teeth and gums which could cause you to bleed or damage your mouth, or it will be so painful for you to operate the toothbrush you may not be able to do a thorough job and clean your teeth fully. Those who suffer from ailments like arthritis and Parkinson's can struggle to do this. The need to grip a small object create can create great discomfort in their joints. Cutlery grips allow you to create a much larger surface area which will make a toothbrush easier to hold and use. By creating a bigger surface area, it lessens the strain on joints which will decrease the amount of pain the user will suffer.

Cutlery grips are a great aid to day to day life and allow tasks which need you to grip and use small items much easier and less painful. Take a look at our newest video: How to apply and remove cutlery grips!

Tenura Daily Living Aids in the Office

tenura_daily_living_aids_in_office_usWhile Tenura daily living aids have been previously mentioned as really useful in domestic and clinical environments, they are not restricted to this, as they offer many different application uses in many different environments, anyone can find a use for them.

The office is one such area in which Tenura products can be utilized. In a fast paced office environment, or even a home office, Tenura daily living aids offer a quick-fire anti slip solution to any desk, table or a situation that requires grip enhancement.

Laptops are a particularly prominent item in the workplace, as many people travel a lot during the day, so need to have the ability to take their work wherever they go. Laptops also have the only slight downside of getting hot when left on a flat, unventilated surface; this could cause damage to the surface it’s on. Feet can also catch power leads and, while some laptops have preventive measures in place, some don’t, so that urgent report could be delayed due to your laptop being knocked onto the floor.

Tenura silicone rubber non slip mats and non slip fabric can prevent these, due to their anti slip qualities, which will prevent the item being pulled to the floor, and their heat resistance, will prevent the surface being possibly blemished, and in particular with the non slip fabric, offers a bit more ventilation.

You can fit your whole desk with Tenura daily living aids, with a non slip coaster for your morning cup of coffee, and one to go under your vase of flowers, or a similar item of convenience on your desk.

Tenura anti slip grip strips are also useful for people who struggle to grip pens, as wrapping a grip strip around will increase grip and comfort for the user.

Grip rolls make an excellent draw liner, preventing the regular opening and closing of draw from creating noise and possible damage to items within.

Should you have a foot rest under your desk, then another non slip mat may come in handy, as not all of them have an effective anti slip surface. Many people I know like to take their shoes off while they are sat at their desk, and the mat would insulate better, keeping your feet a lot warmer than the uninviting, cold plastic of a foot rest would normally.

Tenura daily living aids can be integrated effectively in to a working environment, in most cases to increase efficiency in the workplace.

For more information on using Tenura daily living aids in an office environment, you can browse the website or contact us via phone or email, and we will be more than happy to discuss your requirements.

Anti-Slip Bath Stickers : Stick and Stay!

aqua_safe_discs_wet_2In our short time, our anti-slip aqua safe bath stickers have been our most popular product, and it has come without surprise! Their effectiveness through their simplicity is what makes them so popular.

A quick clean of the shower or bath tub (not forgetting to mention it must be an alcohol based cleaner), then once it’s dry, stick the stickers down and you can almost literally hop in to the shower or tub, note to kids of all ages though; please do not try this at home.

After writing about the things for the past two years, a few months ago I found a reason to personally use them. My shower at home is absolutely fine, but my girlfriends on the other hand, was a recipe for disaster…. You simply stood in the shower, and your feet would instantly travel towards the outer edges of the tray. Now before I slipped and gained a nice injury, I decided to use what I had at my disposal to eradicate this problem. They took me about five minutes to get applied, including the cleaning, and once done, I hopped in the shower, and my feet stayed where I put them.
They have been down for months now, and not a one has lifted, and my girlfriend tells me how she doesn’t have to prepare herself for any slips in the shower anymore. Now if that isn’t a good boyfriend, then I don’t know what is.
