Once again, I have to say, the month is moving fast but we have achieved so much!
Testing was the next item on the agenda. We can check that off. Well, not so fast. We've finally gotten the product to the independent verifier for testing longevity of SoftSlam and the force that SoftSlam can with stand.
As it turns out, we can't get SoftSlam certified because it is so new and so unique. There are no standards that cover it. If there are no standards, there is no certification. As much as that is a blow to my ego, it proves what we have been telling you for three months. There is nothing in the world like SoftSlam. We will set the standard by which all up and coming copies adhere to.
In a day and age when it seems that everything has been invented and most new things are only adjustments or improvements of old things, it is truly remarkable to be on the cutting edge of technology with something so new, so innovative that it will change homes and hotels forever. It will improve safety with door operation that no one ever dreamed could be achieved.
We have used SoftSlam in our house for 2 years without fail. We have had people come and test SoftSlam with what I would consider an abusive slam. We, ourselves, trying to establish the limits of SoftSlam have abused our doors. We are fortunate that 1. Nick is a joiner-carpenter and could fix any damage if we'd done any and 2. We have solid hardwood doors and jambs that have not even noticed the abusive nature of the slams. Nick has even put a SoftSlam in a vice or two to see just how much pressure it can withstand.
Even without the results of the independent testing laboratory, we offer a 100% replacement policy if any part of your SoftSlam fails.
