Friday, January 29th, 2016

heskins non slip materialHeskins non slip fabric is very popular amongst customers. It’s a soft, non slip material with fantastic anti slip properties which is great for using on production lines, to not only prevent products from slipping off during production, but also prevents any unnecessary damage. It is useful around the home for similar reasons, to help protect your most treasured belongings.

Non slip material can be easily cut to size too, allowing it to be applied and used virtually anywhere!

Non Slip Material for Furniture

Non slip fabric can also be used on furniture, preventing unwanted movement without causing any damage.


While most hold pretty well, there are many beds that have bases made from laminated wood, on which the mattresses rest. While the surround of this base usually have a lip that mattresses rest in, this does not always prevent movement, thus when getting in to bed, the mattresses can shift, causing you to get off again and re-adjust before attempting to successfully enter your bed again. By placing non slip fabric on the base inbetween the mattress, you can eradicate movement and the only movement you need to worry about is getting yourself comfortable.


non slip material on sofaWe all love to sprawl comfortably on a sofa, unless that’s just me. However, many sofa cushions don’t always stay in their rightful place, either sliding out while you are seated or moving out of position when you are sitting down or standing up from them. These are problems that are usually more apparent on leather sofas. Placing non slip fabric underneath the sofa cushions helps hold them in position, preventing them from moving out of place, at the very least as much as they used to. Non slip fabric is a cost effective solution to the problem, and can change your opinion on a once unfavourable sofa, to one that makes you want to become a couch potato!

As well as loosely placing it under cushions, mattresses or any other furniture, non slip fabric can be stitched in for a better hold, if required. The material is durable, but soft enough to allow it to be sewn to any other fabrics with ease. If you are constantly dealing with slipping cushions or mattresses, this would be a good option.

Non slip fabric is perfect as a non slip material on furniture. It is available in adhesive and non adhesive variants in white, and non adhesive in red and blue in commercial logs measuring 1.5m in width and 25m in length. Tenura non slip fabric is available in white, black and beige in the same sizes, aside from beige which is available in a length of 30m. All Tenura non slip fabric is available in retail packs for immediate resale in sizes of 508mm x 1.83m. Tenura non slip fabric can be ordered individually from the Tenura website.

Custom options are also available dependent on order quantity.

Slip and Fall Accidents Cause More Concussions Than Sports?

Thursday, January 14th, 2016

concussion in sportsIt is not a mistake to assume that sports injuries would be one of the leading causes of concussion and other brain injuries. However, it is in fact slip and fall injuries that is a leading cause, accounting for 40% of concussion and other brain related injuries nationwide.

As the snow and ice seems quite imminent on our shores, having already appeared in Scotland, and no doubt soon to make it’s way to England, combining this with the dark nights makes for an increase in risk of slip and fall injuries.

Protecting yourself from injuries due to slip and falls is important all year round, as it’s not only snow and ice than cause these types of injuries. Water, dirt build up and poor footwear can all attribute to a fall.

We produce and supply a wide range of anti slip tapes, perfect for protecting against slip and fall injuries on all but the loosest of surfaces.

Standard Anti Slip Tape

standard, coarse and extra coarse safety gripUsed for standard application, as the name suggest, standard anti slip tape is great for general purpose slip protection, providing great grip on virtually all surfaces.

Coarse Anti Slip Tape

Coarse anti slip tape has large grit granules applied to the surface. This creates wide valleys, inbetween the peaks. This prevents ice and dirt from clogging the valleys and rendering the anti slip surface ineffective.

HG-Extra Coarse Anti Slip tape

This is our extreme, industry grade anti slip tape, using large grit granules to create very harsh, abrasive surfaces to prevent slips in all but the most unfathomable conditions.

Bolt Down Anti Slip Plates

By using bolt down anti slip plates, you can have an anti slip surface which can only be used when needed also, as the plates are fixed down with screws or nails.

Heskins stock a range of non abrasive anti slip tapes, as well as our abrasive range, for use in many environments. Many colours and sizes are available, with custom options available dependent on order quantity.

Non Slip Tape for Forklifts

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

non slip tape on forkliftsForklifts are an integral part of most workplaces, helping to move large quantities of goods and machinery around with ease. Not only this, but most forklifts have the ability for large amounts of goods stacked on pallets to be stored in high-tiered racking.

While forklifts are an invaluable part of any workplace and business, they are still prone to mishaps. With most forks on forklifts simply being bare metal, sometimes the grip on them isn’t the greatest, and as the choice of pallets are wood, or plastic, the latter of which have a low energy surface, combining this with bare metal forks, with the possible addition of contaminants in the workplace, such as water or oil and grease, equates to the possibilities of a slip.

Non Slip Tape for Forklifts

A customer of ours has recently been in touch, showing their simple application of non slip tape onto the forks of their forklift.

The application of non slip tape to forklift forks can allow for a better grip to be achieved on pallets, preventing accidents in the workplace due to moving heavy goods around the workplace.

non slip tape for forkliftsThe application of non slip tape for forklifts is simple. By cleaning the surface with an alcohol based cleaner, and allowing the forks to dry before applying non slip tape, you can achieve exceptional slip protection when managing pallets.

We offer a wide range of abrasive and non abrasive non slip tapes which would be perfect for using as slip protection on forklifts, with the footplates also benefiting from a non slip surface, as well as the forks. Heskins stock a range of non slip tapes in various grit grades, finishes, colours, shapes and sizes. Custom options are also available dependent on order quantity.
