Anti Slip Tape Application to Prevent Illegal Fly Posting


One of our customers got in touch, after getting fed up of people illegally fly posting on his property. Read on how Heskins helped to reduce fly posting.

Here at Heskins, when someone asks us how many applications do our products lend themselves to, we usually answer “How long is a piece of string?” This is simply down to the fact that someone, somewhere is always finding a new application for our products, and this post is regarding one of those.

Fly Posting

Fly posting is a guerilla marketing tactic, that involves placing posters and flyers on walls, windows and various other places in a city, and it can be seen as legal or illegal depending on where the posters are applied. For many, this can be seen as vanda­liza­tion of property, which can be costly for the owners to clean up, or an eyesore if they don’t. When high maintenance is necessary, this can be very frustrating and doesn’t seem to deter fly posters. One of our customers got in touch recently, letting us know they had come up with a pretty nifty idea for the application of our anti-slip tape. Potentially a deterrent for illegal fly posting. They have applied Heskins standard Safety Grip on all the flat surfaces of their waste disposal bins. This will stop posters from sticking when they are pasted on, as the surface is not smooth enough to achieve an effective bond. While sticking something on the surface could be seen as defeating the object, it is infinitely much better than the bins being covered in posters. Over time they will be subject to wear and tear, making them look unsightly.

Heskins offer die cuts of all variants of our anti-slip tape for this very purpose. We do stock many die cuts that will not require much adaptation for application. We can offer bespoke die cuts dependent on order quantity. If you would like to enquire further, or simply place an order, you can do so by getting in touch with our sales team. You can contact Heskins via phone, live chat or complete the contact us form on the website and one of our sales team members will get back to you.
