WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT US

"Excellent, I must say I have been doing this for almost 20 years and you guys are a pleasure to deal with."

Casey F. New York

"We had an RPZ failure at the school I work at due to recent weather conditions here on Long Island. We have Hot Box wall heaters in our enclosures and the heat was not being distributed evenly. The floor-mounted heat sheet Safe-T-Cover offers would do a much better job."

Waterworks Distributor Midwest

"I’ve dealt with Hot Box and AquaShield in the past and they do not pack enclosures like you do! Safe-T-Cover does a great job. I had an AquaShield a year or so ago that was beat all to hell because of the packing, and the panels bounced around allowing the handles on the doors to dent the panels packed on top. It was an absolute nightmare to try and get fixed. I don’t have that problem with you!"
