Banana Sign

When you walk into a building most of the time, the first thing you notice is the appearance of the floor. Does it shine or is it dull and dirty? If it seems extra shiny it could be that the floor is wet and if so, there should be wet floor signs indicating such.
There are a number of different types of wet floor signs all designed to do one thing; warn of potential hazards due to the floor being wet. The most common type is the sandwich board style which is a two sided sign indicating the message. This is commonly referred to as a "Wet floor sign" Another popular style is the pop up safety sign which looks like a pyramid with the visual warnings on each side. It's commonly referred to as a "Wet floor Cone". It wasn't until 2013 that a new type of safety cone became available, known today as "The Banana Cone".
Wet floor signs are not simply to let you know the floor is wet, rather to give a visual warning that there is the possibility of unstable footing which could cause a person to slip and fall sustaining injury. It's extremely common to associate a slip with a banana peel, even a two year old knows would too. This is why the Banana Cone should be considered the safest wet floor sign on the market. 
The #1 reason why accidents happen is because they IGNORE the signage. They've turned themselves into a commodity and we don't even realize that there's a wet floor sign even there. If people know the floors slippery, they're more likely to NOT slip. If you have a banana cone, people might actually notice it. Banana Products, "Stand out from the Bunch".
