Anti Slip Tape on Boats and in the Marine Sector


Anti-slip tape on boats is something we are heavily involved in, but we don’t seem to discuss it publicly. This post gives us an opportunity to do just that

Anti-slip tape on boats is something that at Heskins we are heavily involved in, but, we never seem to talk about it! I thought I would take this opportunity to discuss it and what we do for the marine sector.

With its myriad uses, anti-slip tape has become an indispensable tool in many industries, including the marine sector. At Heskins, we’ve been deeply involved in the development and application of anti-slip tape on boats, although we haven’t publicly addressed this niche aspect of our work until now. In this post, we’ll take you on a deeper dive into this topic, answering potential questions you might have, and unveiling the curtain on our marine specific products.

The use of anti-slip tape on boats presents a unique set of challenges. For one, the material should be non-abrasive. After all, boat owners often go barefoot or wear delicate yacht shoes. Moreover, they don’t wish for their prized possessions to resemble a factory floor. With these requirements in mind, we have developed several non-abrasive anti-slip solutions that are perfect for marine applications.

Now, you might be wondering, “Why should I choose Heskins anti-slip tape for my boat?” That’s a very pertinent question. For starters, we offer a range of products such as H3415 Coarse Resilient, H3415 Coarse Resilient Lean, H3408 Resilient, and H3405 Aqua-Safe. All of these materials have been designed to offer an unparalleled blend of aesthetics and functionality without compromising on the luxury feel of your boat.

A common question we receive is, “Has the non-abrasive nature of these products compromised their efficiency?” The answer is a resounding no. Our non-abrasive materials have seen substantial improvements over the years, achieving levels of coefficient of friction (grip) that were inconceivable not too long ago.

For instance, the photo displayed here showcases our blue safety-grip material. It was chosen for a racing yacht because the team sought the highest possible level of grip even in the most challenging weather conditions. This way, we ensured there was no loss of traction, demonstrating the product’s superior performance capabilities.

You might also be curious to know, “What’s next for Heskins in the marine sector?” We are constantly working to innovate and bring new solutions to our customers. Soon, we will be introducing the blue Coarse Resilient Lean, extending our non-abrasive anti-slip tape materials specifically for the marine sector.

Furthermore, our research and development teams are exploring new ways to enhance our product range. Therefore, if you’ve been seeking reliable, effective, and aesthetically pleasing anti-slip solutions for your boat, we suggest you keep an eye on this space.

In conclusion, at Heskins, we understand the unique requirements of the marine sector. We believe that your boat should not only be a safe place but also retain its elegance. So, whether you’re sailing in rough weather or merely enjoying a tranquil day on the water, with our anti-slip tape solutions, you’ll be well-prepared for anything.
