Approved Anti-Slip Tape for Aircraft


Since 1998, Heskins have produced approved anti-slip tape for aircraft. Read about where our anti-slip tapes are approved for aircraft use and the certification that comes with them.

Since 1998, Heskins have been approved and certified to supply anti-slip materials for aircraft interiors. We have anti-slip tapes approved for use inside cockpits, passenger interiors and cargo holds. All relevant materials have been certified by FAA and CAA approved testing labora­tories. We hold certi­fica­tion to;

  1. FAR25853 b 5 horizontal burn test.
  2. CAA/FAA specifi­cation number 8, vertical test, issue

Cockpit Area

All materials within the cockpit require a guarantee to not hold a flame. Cockpits are usually barren areas with contents being kept to a minimum and one of the reasons for this is to ensure fire risk is virtually non-existent. For non-slip requ­ire­ments, H3406 conformable is certified for use within the cockpit, as the aluminium backing will not hold a flame.

Rest of the Aircraft

H3401 Safety Grip is approved for use in all other areas of an aircraft. Standard Safety Grip provides exceptional slip protection in all general appli­cations, indoor and outdoor and it is used for slip prevention on aircraft steps and within thresholds and cargo holds.

At no additional cost, we can send Certificates of Conformity on request with every delivery to provide assurance that suppliers to the aviation industry have up to date, accurate docum­en­ta­tion. All anti-slip materials produced by Heskins are produced in either our European or US factories, both of which are approved to ISO9000.
