Residential Deliveries

Free Shipping via UPS SurePost is an economy, residential, ground service. This service combines the consistency and reliability of the UPS Ground network with final delivery typically provided by the U.S. Postal Service. If you wish for your order to go through UPS for delivery, select UPS Ground at checkout.

Freight companies could charge an additional fee on top of the original freight charge if delivering to a residence. Each freight carrier has its own definitions for residential delivery.

Freight

BH-USA will make every effort possible to find the most cost-effective freight shipping method for your order. The customer is financially responsible for all shipping and handling charges of their order. BH-USA will select from one of its preferred freight carriers to ship your order unless otherwise specified in writing.

The customer must work with the freight carrier for delivery. Two options; pick up at the terminal or deliver to a location. Freight carriers will not unload and drop freight at the door like UPS or USPS. The freight carrier will make every effort to arrange delivery with the homeowner. If the customer is uncompliant with the freight carrier, the order will be returned to BH-USA. The purchaser will be charged for all freight costs and an additional 20% restock fee.

BH-USA is in no way responsible for any type of issues with the delivery of freight such as gates, neighborhoods that do not allow large trucks, inaccessible roads, homeowner being out of town, or any other issue that might hinder the delivery of the freight.

BH-USA cannot promise any special requests from a customer regarding freight, this must be handled between you and the freight company. If you are concerned that a large truck cannot deliver to your address we suggest not ordering this item until you have made arrangements to have it shipped to a commercial address.

Freight Quotes

We are here to help if you need a freight quote. BH-USA will quote based on information supplied by the customer at the time of the quote.

BH-USA will not be held responsible for this quote if unforeseen charges are applied. Such charges could be a residential delivery charge, drop gate, missed delivery attempts, or other types of charges. If this happens, BH-USA will bill the customer for the additional charges with the payment method used to place the order. BH-USA reserves the right to run the credit card provided again for the additional freight charges.

Due to the fluctuation of fuel costs, all quotes are considered an estimate. Charges could be higher than previously quoted on the order. The customer is responsible for the cost difference.

Receiving a Freight Shipment

Signing the delivery ticket as received is a contractual agreement transferring ownership of the shipment from BH-USA to the signee.

BEFORE you sign the delivery ticket make sure delivery is complete and no visible damages are present. If items are missing or damaged either notate this on the delivery ticket. Have the delivery driver sign the notation or refuse the shipment.

If the shipment is delivered and signed it is complete delivery. Then it is understood by BH-USA that the shipment arrived complete with no damage or issues.

Filing a Claim

BH-USA will help with the claim process. It is the responsibility of the customer to file the claim with the shipping carrier. BH-USA is not responsible for replacing any missing item that was lost in transit and signed as received by the customer. Once a claim is approved by the shipping carrier, BH-USA will send a replacement item.

Please note that most shipping carriers will not approve a claim if the customer has signed received it in full. BH-USA is not responsible if an unauthorized person signed for the shipment with missing or incomplete items.

Incorrect Order Shipped

If BH-USA is at fault for shipping the wrong item or amount, we will reship the item(s) at our own expense. The correction will process like other orders and follow standard BH-USA shipping procedures.

Handrail Grip Tape

The Handrail Grip Tape is an asymmetric-patterned, non-abrasive anti-slip and grip-enhancing material designed to be applied to handrails to increase grip.

Handrail Grip Tape Development

To produce a suitable handrail grip tape. Heskins needed a solution that was not only grip-enhancing but was comfortable to the user. meaning that at the time, new anti-slip material required. Plastic is a material that can be manipulated into either a hard or soft finish. We chose the latter to ensure a rubber-like finish. Added a dimpled effect to increase grip and give it an attractive finish. Certain plastics can be modified to have a rubber feel yet retain better consistency. This provides easier maintenance also, as it is easier to clean than a lot of conventional rubbers.

3418 handrail tapes construction consists of PVC with an embossed, asymmetrical pattern on the surface. A base-layer of PET (polyethene tereph­thalate) added underneath for better insulation during the colder months. Finished with an adhesive coating on the underside. Provides a strong bond after application to ensure great durability.

Handrail Grip Tape Application Variation

For application, ensure the surface you are applying to is clean, dry and free from any grit or residue. There are various ways in which you can apply handrail grip tape. Here are a few suggestions below.

Horizontal application

This will use a strip of handrail grip tape, applied lengthways along a railing and then wrapped around to join neatly around the railing. This application method is particularly suitable for long railings that have little to no support bars joining them through the middle.

Tight Spiral Application

This application requires no pre-cutting a length of material, and although a little more complex, it ensures great coverage. Allows more complex railings covered without stopping and cutting pieces. When done correctly it can be an effective time saver.

Spaced Spiral Application

Spaced spiral application is a more cost-effective application, as you can still achieve an efficient, grip-enhanced surface while making the material go further. Recommended for internal areas, as some of the bare railings will still be visible.

Handrail grip tape is available in rolls.
