It’s that time of year in colder climates that you often find ice covered parking lots and surfaces. Most of those who have braved winters have found that firm footing is not always easy to come by and slipping and falling is a very common occurrence. According to injuryhelpline.com it has been estimated that each year just under 1 million people arrive at the hospital and 17,000 people die due to injuries related to slipping on ice covered surfaces. In addition, it is one of the leaders in traumatic brain injuries. Some of these falls happen while walking on the sidewalk, on steps leading in and out of buildings, and climbing in and out of your car or truck. Often when a fall occurs by your car it is because you are losing balance due to overstepping your physical reach. For example, those who are under six feet tall struggle climbing into trucks at times due to the large gap from the ground to the truck floor. One solution to this problem is to grow taller or another solution is equipping your truck with Running Boards and Nerf Bars. With these you’ll have easy access in and out of your cab and increase the safety for you and your passengers. We have many options with varying materials, finishes, lengths, and styles of nerf bars. Also, we know each truck is different, so we have made sure we have the right application for you if you specify your make, model, and sub-model during the order process.
