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. Most of our materials used as anti slip flooring for boats is non-abrasive, if one thinks of the use of pleasure craft people might be barefoot, they might have yacht shoes and they certainly don’t want their beautiful investment turned into an industrial looking utilitarian piece of equipment. Our H3415 Coarse Resilient, H3415 Coarse Resilient Lean, H3408 Resilient and H3405 aqua-safe are perfect materials for non-abrasive marine applications. Some of our non-abrasive materials now possess levels of coefficient of friction (grip) that was not possible just a few years ago.
The photo shown is our blue safety-grip, this material was utilised on the racing yacht as the team wanted the highest possible level of grip in even the most demanding weather conditions ensuring no loss of traction.
We will soon be offering blue Coarse Resilient Lean and are looking to expand our non-abrasive anti slip tape materials specifically for the marine sector; watch this space!
