If it looks like a duck

and walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, chances are it’s probably a duck. Ever hear that one? Sure you have.

Basically, it means that if it appears to be something and has all the characteristics of that something, then the logical conclusion is that it is what it appears to be. Aha. The operative words here for me are “what it appears to be.” Why? Things are not always what they appear to be.

Ever buy a “similar” product because it was less expensive and you thought you were saving money? In the long run did you really save? Did it really do what you wanted it to do? How long did it last? What was your reason for buying it? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not making any judgments. In fact, there are times when purchasing a similar less expensive product can adequately serve the purpose.

Not with safety products.

Sentry products are safety products; built to protect people, equipment and facilities from damages caused by impact from industrial equipment and vehicles.  There are other products that look like ours; the same color, the same height; at a visual glance they look the same. But peel away the outside layer and you definitely recognize the difference. The way they are designed, manufactured, the materials used, the testing they undergo all factor in to making one of the highest quality, toughest, most reliable safety products you can buy. Are they more expensive? Yes, they are. I’m proud to say that because you get what you pay for and safety products are not where you should be looking for bargains. The consequences can be dire.

Safety is serious business. When you purchase safety products to protect your people, equipment and facilities, look below the surface, get past the exterior and make sure that what you see is indeed what you get.
