Redbacks Kneeler Stands Out in Travis Perkins Award Stakes
Following the international success of the SATRA award winning, non-foam or gel Redbacks Kneepads, which after just 4 years in production now sell in over 22 countries, manufacturers Redbacks Cushioning Limited have been shortlisted for a new product, ‘The Redbacks Kneeler’ to win another innovation award, this time from one of the most established names in the building and home improvement markets – Travis Perkins plc.
Using the same patented technology principals drawn from its kneepad predecessor, The Redbacks Kneeler is a cushion pad designed for maximum skeletal comfort and knee protection whilst kneeling for any length of time on harsh or unyielding surfaces.
Comprised of two parts, the inner cushion is made from a rubberised plastic consisting of multiple leaf-springs within an open matrix which gently suspends and cushions the knees, and a breathable, water resistant, removable and washable cover; this has a non-slip and penetration-resistant bottom layer and a soft-stretch top that allows kneeling with bare knees without irritation. The product is designed to appeal to many trades and industries where kneeling is vital in work situations as well as having many practical uses for the consumer.
Travis Perkins plc are well known experts in the building and home improvement markets and have been supplying the building and construction trades for more than 200 years, The Tr avis Perkins Innovation Awards scheme has been formed to be in line with the company’s ambition to always be at the forefront of providing innovative solutions to the ever changing needs of their customers. Winners will have their products trialed in selected Group locations throughout the UK.
