International Design Exhibition in Saint Etienne, France
Securitas is proud to announce that Natascha Drabbe, Curator of the RE-F-USE Sustainable Product Design International Design Exhibition, has selected Securitas’ NO-SHANK® toothbrush to be in its 2002 catalog and become part of its traveling European exhibition in Saint Etienne, France this fall. The traveling exhibition was in Stuttgart and Breda in 1997, The Hague and Ghent in 1998, Barcelona in 1999, Lisbon, Oporto and Paris in 2000 and Copenhagen, Arnhem and Utrecht in 2001. Other products featured by the International Design Exhibition can be seen on its web site www.re-f-use.com.
Sales of the NSTB-1002 NO-SHANK® toothbrush to correctional facilities have exceeded 1.5 million with no reports of a weapon being made from one. No other toothbrush manufacturer can make this claim. The United State Marine Corps uses this product exclusively for the detainees at Camp X-Ray, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. It is the world’s safest toothbrush. We have designed it for high security areas such as administrative segregation and suicide watch in correctional facilities. In addition, local facilities in many states use this product exclusively and one or more facilities in more than 50% of the Department of Corrections currently use it.
Securitas sells the reusable, one-size-fits-all fingertip toothbrush into many different markets under different trademarks. Under the trademark ULTRALIGHT-SPORTS ™, Securitas sells the toothbrush to the camping and backpacking market, via the Internet and retail outlets such as REI, a 54 store national chain. Securitas markets the toothbrush to the military market, the business travel market and the youth market under this trademark.
