The Swiss manufacturer of the steel spiral tubing has been hit with an advertising ban by the Italian media outlet Sportmediatore.
The steel spiral is a tube made from a thin layer of steel with the tubes’ ends attached to a plastic shell.
This makes it possible to make a tube that can withstand the force of a large collision and also provides a way to prevent children from slipping.
“We are investigating the complaint filed against us by the Sportsmediatores in connection with our Steel Spiral tube,” the company told the paper.
“It is our hope that the matter will be resolved as soon as possible.”Severin Böck, the chief executive of Sportmediatenore, told the newspaper the tube was the first product to be banned from the market in Italy because of safety concerns.
“Our product is not a toy.
It’s designed for adults to be played with in a safe environment, with a good chance of survival,” he said.”
This is also true for children, who cannot stand the danger and must be supervised by adults when they play.”
Italia has a long history of banning toys from the country.
It banned children’s toys in 2009 after the deaths of two children, one aged 12 and the other 15, in an accident involving a steel tube.
