Many people are disabled because of slips and falls in the shower every year, and this also adds to the troubles for their families. Therefore, it is very important to implement non slip bath mat for elderly in the bathroom in the renovation of new houses or the renovation of old houses, and the safety issues faced when taking a bath should get our attention. Since you can wear non-slip slippers in and out of the bathroom unlike the shower, you need to go in and out of the bath with bare feet. When stepping in and out of the bathtub, you need to push hard, which will cause the center of gravity to shift. In addition, it is very easy to slip if you step on a smooth or foamed bathtub wall with bare feet. An ordinary shower pad can’t be supported by the suction cup when it is placed in the bathtub. In order to solve this problem, the development team of the Wolfwood Design Center has been improving the adsorption of the anti-skid pad by designing the suction cup and adjusting the precision of the mold in the past few years. At present, the non-slip pads sold under our brand are very effective, and can meet the requirements of adsorption force in the bathtub.
After years of feedback from hotel and home users, although the suction of the suction cup is great, it is still prone to slippage when getting up after taking a bath. Through these feedbacks, we found that although the previous style has a non-slip texture on the front, it can solve the problems of adsorption and standing showers, but it still cannot solve the problem of getting up and slipping after taking a bath. Because in the process of taking a bath, the water in the bathtub has a lot of buoyancy when a person is lying flat, which is easy to float, and it is difficult for the feet to find a support point when getting up, especially in a long bathtub or a double bathtub. In response to this problem, the development team specially designed a non slip bath mat for elderly with a raised air cushion in early 2017 as a support for getting up, and through the perfect combination of materials and molds, it can not only get up smoothly after taking a bath, but also be soft and non-stinging, so as to achieve The double-sided non slip bath mat for elderly effect of the bathtub mat is achieved.
Physical comfort also includes the environmental protection of materials. Because the anti-slip mat in the bathtub is a product that is in close contact with your skin like underwear Hot water has high requirements on materials. At present, there are many colorful PVC or PU anti-slip mats on the market. An ordinary bathroom mat is also declared as a bathtub mat. The World Health Organization announced the list of carcinogens. , PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is listed as a class 3 carcinogen as early as October 27, 2017. When PVC encounters hot water which above 60ºC, it will accelerate the release of phthalates and other components.
Environmentally friendly bathtub mats are also important for body comfort when taking a bath, so after a lot of tests on material selection, many common materials on the market, such as PVC, PU, polyester fiber, TP, silicone, etc., were finally eliminated. natural rubber.
- PVC (polyvinyl chloride) has low cost and strong plasticity, but it is classified as a class 3 carcinogen. When encountering hot water above 60ºC, the release of phthalates and other components will be accelerated in this environment. And the PVC material is easy to age and has insufficient cold resistance, and it is very easy to harden in the cold in winter, resulting in insufficient suction of the suction cup.
- PU (polyurethane material) is an emerging organic polymer material, known as the “fifth largest plastic”. Good physical properties, resistance to torsion, good softness, and high tensile strength, but because it is a toxic product, it can also be said to be a low-toxic product, and long-term inhalation can still cause harm to the human body. Among them, there are many kinds of isocyanates: O=C=N-R. They are generally liquids with unpleasant odor and are poisonous. Nausea, shortness of breath, and even very few people vomit blood immediately after smelling this smell, and in severe cases, they will pass out on the spot.
- Polyester fiber (commonly known as “polyester”) was invented in 1941 and is currently the largest variety of synthetic fibers. The biggest advantage of polyester fiber is that it has good wrinkle resistance and shape retention, and has high strength and elastic recovery. It is durable, wrinkle-resistant, iron-free, and non-sticky. It is very suitable for personal products in terms of its own material, but the disadvantage of being a bathtub mat is that the fiber weaving is not waterproof and breathable, so that the oil after bathing is very easy to accumulate in the fiber gap, which is very easy to breed bacteria.
- TPE is a thermoplastic elastomer material, which has the characteristics of high strength, high res
