TOLEDO, OH, August 1, 2018:  Impact is proud to announce the partnership with Banana Products in an exclusive distribution agreement for North America. The new brand, “Banana by Impact”, consists of Tri-Lingual Banana Cones™ and accessories.

The Banana Cone™ was originally inspired by the popular Nintendo 64 game Mario Kart. The patented design has won multiple awards (ISSA Innovation Award and Sanitary Maintenance Distributors Choice Award twice) and has become an industry favorite!
A 2015 perception study evaluating the effectiveness of caution signs and cones demonstrated that the Banana Cone is up to 22 times more noticeable than traditional safety signs. The unique design draws more attention and people often associate banana peels with being slippery.

The OSHA compliant tri-lingual design (English/Spanish/French) is available in cases of three. The Banana Cone unit has two parts, the cone (banana) and the top (stem). Both are included in the case. They stack with or without the tops and are available in 2 foot or 3 foot sizes. The Banana Cones are said to “stand out from the Bunch”.

The iconic banana peel slip dates back to the early 1800’s and was used in the world’s first comedy film made by Charlie Chaplin. Now a popular comedy gag, the banana peel slip is recognized by both children and adults worldwide. Incorporating the banana peel into a safety cone helps deliver the “don’t slip” message while adding a humorous twist.
