Mop Friendly Anti Slip Tape

Monday, June 29th, 2015

mop friendly anti slip tapeMarine anti slip slip tape is one of our more recent introductions. As Heskins first marine specific anti slip product, it is now a flagship material which a lot of our future products will evolve from.

While it feels abrasive, it is a different beast to our regular Safety Grip™, featuring S2 rather than aluminium oxide. S2 are small, round glass beads, making it comfortable to walk on, yet still providing adequate slip prevention, even in the most demanding of environments.

One benefit we have discovered recently, is that it is completely mop friendly! And aside from our non abrasives, this is the first abrasive material that can confidently be classed as a mop friendly anti slip tape. It can be easily cleaned with a mop, without the beads causing damage and shortening the mops life span.

mop friendly anti slipOur abrasive anti slip tapes, in particular our Safety Grip™ range, will never be mop friendly, simply due to the construction. The aluminium oxide grit is a sharp edged granule that when applied, is passed through a static bar to ensure the sharpest points are pointing up. To attempt to mop this material would not only end up with a damaged mop, but a lot of fibers caught in the anti slip tape, resulting in, if you are aesthetically inclined, time consuming removal.

The round glass beads on marine anti slip tape allow the mop to go over without any sharp edges catching the fibers, or damaging the mop, ensuring easy cleaning.

If you require a mop friendly anti slip tape, then please get in touch to enquire or order. We can offer samples of marine anti slip tape for you to see the quality of the product first hand. Custom options are also an option, as dependent on order quantity we can create our products in a range of colours matching Pantone or RAL references.

You can contact us by phone, email, live chat or the contact us form on the site. We would love to hear from you.



Red and White Resilient Tape Now Available

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

red resilient tapeResilient tape was a milestone for us when we first created it, because it was the first non abrasive anti slip tape that could achieve levels of grip only previously obtainable with abrasive non slip products.

Resilient tapes non abrasive finish means it is kind to bare skin, so is great to use in areas where bare feet are exposed or minimal clothing is worn, such as boats or swimming pools, while still offering fantastic slip prevention to prevent injuries or increase foothold.

Recently, we have created two more colours to add to the range. Previous to this, resilient tape was available in black, yellow and green, but now we have not only added white, but we have added red to the range too, increasing the colour options for our customers straight from the shelf, helping to reduce lead times further. This is due to the amount of requests made for these two colours in our bespoke services.

We feel that offering bespoke services allow us to not only serve our customers better, but also help us to stand out from the rest.

We can offer samples of our products, so if you would like to see the quality of our red and white resilient anti slip tape first hand, you can do so by getting in touch with us. We offer samples of our entire range of products; such is our confidence with them.

Printed Safety Grip™ used for Baku 2015

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

printed safety gripWe were recently contacted about creating a printed Safety Grip™ that will be used on the start ramp and podium for the BMX races at the Baku 2015 European Games.

The Baku 1st European Games are to be held in Baku, Azerbaijan, from the 12th until the 28th of June. An inaugural multi-sport event for athletes representing the National Olympic Committees of Europe. The BMX events are scheduled for the last 2 days, Men going through 4 rounds and Women 3 to reach high-octane rounds to reach the final.

We used our standard white anti slip tape to achieve the results, printing full colour to ensure the colour was exactly as they specified. This process ensured that the print would match the colour code they provided, and reduce the risk of any delays in the production process.
As with all past jobs for bmx ramps, our ubiquitous Safety Grip™ is used to provide excellent levels of grip and traction to help the athletes achieve the best possible start.
We can print full colour to any material, but also white onto black, ensuring that we can meet clients needs whenever necessary.

For large format jobs, we create a plan, which is printed onto sheets of anti slip tape, and then pieced together during application. This method makes printing onto a large format effortless.

Our process has become more and more optimised over the years to allow us to meet shorter deadlines.
