RANGESAFE KEEPS FAMILIES SAFE The RangeSafe knob's patented design provides homeowners and landlords with peace of mind RangeSafe LLC, based in Bracey, VA, launched its patented RangeSafe™ kitchen range knobs in November 2018. These innovative after-market enhancements to a modern kitchen serve as both an attractive addition to stoves as well as an added safety measure in the home. The key to RangeSafe Knobs is the patented pinch, push, and turn design. By creating an intentional way to turn on the stove, the risk of accidentally turning on a burner is minimized. Traditional knobs used throughout the market today only require a user to push and twist. The addition of the pinch feature helps to ensure intentional stove use. Available in two different configurations–one for pro-series residential kitchen ranges, and one for entry and mid-price-point residential ranges–the RangeSafe Knobs can be easily installed after-purchase on most commercially available ranges. According to the International Fire Chiefs Association, a child or small pet inadvertently turning on a burner causes 11% of injuries that originate on the stovetop. With that statistic in mind, RangeSafe designed a safety knob for stoves that is both attractive and functional. Unlike other solutions on the market, such as plastic caps, RangeSafe knobs are designed to blend seamlessly into kitchens. An added benefit of the design is that children, normally drawn to colorful plastic caps, won't mistake these knobs for toys. Additionally, RangeSafe knobs are easy to install after-market in place of manufacturer-issued knobs. With two versions available– stainless steel brushed metal for pro-series ranges, and durable plastic for entry and mid-price point ranges–and with over 200 RAL finish options for the metal knob, you're guaranteed to find a knob that fits your range.
