Free Wet Umbrella Cover - Canary Wharf

Wet Umbrella Cover
Well, well, well...looks like something has come out of the slip testing they were conducting in reception of One Canada Square earlier on in the year...I've commented before on how terrifyingly treacherous walking can get on some of the highly polished stone walkways after a shower, and now it seems that something has been done to try and combat it...Next to the doorways into the lower ground floor of our office these little dispensing machines have appeared, the idea being that instead of walking along with your wet umbrella dripping water all over the slippery marble floor, you pause, and tuck it into one of these little plastic bags (for free) to save everyone from slipping over in the little trail you have left...

Quite how successful this will be in practice, when there is a queue of busy commuters debating with themselves whether to continue standing patiently in the rain until their turn to wrap their umbrella up arrives, of course, remains to be seen... ;)

The wet floor is one of the main causes of slipping accidents. Slipping
is one of the main causes of major injuries on rainy and snowy days.
Lots of people every year suffer a serious injury as a result of slipping.
Society has become more claim conscious about such problems. The
goods displayed in department stores, shopping centers and other
busy stores may be also damaged by the dropping water from shoppers'
wet umbrellas.

The wet umbrella wrapper prevents the floors from getting wet and slippery
due to water from the customers’ wet umbrellas. On top of it, you can
save the cleaning work and maintenance by the workers.

When you install our wet umbrella wrappers at the entrances of buildings,
such problems can be immediately removed, and then you can relieve the
visiting customers’ afraid and raise your company’s best courtesy service
