Small business owners and restauranteurs are wise to invest in umbrella stands for a variety of reasons. Most obvious is the benefit such stands provide to patrons. After all, who wants to eat dinner aside a sopping wet umbrella? Invest in a stand, and allow guests to easily hang-dry their umbrellas on stormy afternoons and evenings. Wet umbrella stands provide another less obvious benefit, however. In providing a space for umbrellas to hang dry, these racks help to prevent the formation of dangerous puddles at the restaurant entryway.
What type of umbrella safety product is best for your place of business? A can? A rack? Or, perhaps a new auto-wrapping unit? Wet umbrellas are a big factor when it comes to slip and fall accidents, as they often contribute to puddles and slick spots on the floor. A simple product, like an umbrella can, can prevent costly accidents by reminding guests to leave wet umbrellas at the door, before they have a chance to cause a slip and fall accident.
