Top 10 Other Things to Do with Bedliner - #7 Will Shock You
by Ben Kornbluth
While we’ve been able to show you some practical uses for Durabak, there might be some things you haven’t thought of. In fact, we have the top 10 other things to do with bedliner. Hold on to your seats, some of these might shock you.
1. Refinish Your Bicycle
Especially if you have children, you know how the bikes get scratched and dinged. You barely get the new bike home and it looks like it’s been through a war zone. Refinish the bike with scratchproof bedliner and enjoy the durable protection. Durabak is also salt resistant, so you have corrosion protection if you live near the ocean.
2. Coat the Tool Box
You try hard to keep your tools in the best shape possible, that’s why you have a toolbox. Most of them are made from metal and prone to scratching or rusting. Rust preventatives only do so much and won’t protect your box from wear. Instead, use Durabak to stand up against the heavy-duty abuse and for its anti-corrosive properties.
3. Lawn Furniture
If you want to protect your lawn furniture from the elements, spray on some bedliner. Durabak is useful for all materials, including fiberglass or aluminum. It stands up to the heavy wear and is UV resistant. You can have your lawn furniture out in the sun for years and the colors won’t fade. Durabak is trusted by the US Navy for it's non slip properties which means it's a great way to prevent slips and falls on your deck.
4. Doors on Your Home
If your home has a fiberglass or metal exterior door, it might be susceptible to damage with all the traffic. With bedliner, you receive some extra protection from the abuse and debris. Just imagine how it withstands the abuse from rocks and stones on a truck. It’s just as effective on doors that get slammed and kicked around.
Sure, you can pull dents out of fenders with special tools, but what if you could prevent them in the first place? Every time you head to the grocery store, you wouldn’t have to worry about runaway carts again. Protect your fender with the impact protection of a quality bedliner like Durabak.
6. Extend the Life of Your Shoes
Not everyone wants to spray bedliner onto their shoes, but there’s a good purpose behind it. Not only does bedliner affix well to rubber surfaces, but it’s highly protective. You can extend the life of your soles with this protection and add some anti-skid properties to your shoes as well.
7. Bomb-Proof Your Home
Okay, maybe that’s a little extreme. However, the folks at Mythbusters found that bedliner more than doubled the blast resistance of a cinder-block wall when applied on one surface. Imagine how well it would do from all sides.
8. Fire Escapes
The last thing you want to worry about when running down a fire escape is whether or not you are going to slip. With the non-slip properties of Durabak, especially when wet, you won’t have to concern yourself with this. You can use it on any slippery staircase.
Which brings us to our next option – handrails. When you grab onto a handrail, you want to know that it’s got your back. If you have stairs near the beach, you need something resistance to salt and anti-corrosive. If you deal with an outdoor handrail, you need something that can stand up to the elements as well. Either way, bedliner provides the protection required and offers some additional safety.
10. Kids Playroom
