Heskins Redundant Stock – Sold at Discount!

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

We go through a lot of material here at Heskins, particularly with our post production service. Sometimes post-production is overrun, or miscuts are made, we are partially human in our process after all. We may also discontinue products for one reason or another.

While the items and products may not be suitable for the intended customer for one reason or another, it doesn’t mean they won’t be for others.

For this reason, we have decided to make these available to other customers with significant discounts on our normal prices.

There is nothing wrong with the material or products in question. They are still grade-A and we do not intend to offer anything less than that. We feel that rather than let these be put into storage never to see the light of day again, we want to give other customers the opportunity to make use of them instead.

This is a great opportunity for you to get your hands on some low-cost, high-quality anti-slip or floor marking products.

Heskins are proud to announce our support of Leyland Warriors U9’s rugby team. We have done so in the form of donating two trophies to be presented at the end of every match. One trophy for best play of the match and one for the man of the match.

Michael, one of Heskins most long-standing employees, reached out to ask if we would like to support the team as Ethan, Michaels son, plays for them.

Heskins have duly obliged with a fine pair of trophies that will be presented at the end of each match for the winning players to take home and display proudly for the week.

Heskins love to see kids being active and feel this is a great gesture to help motivate them further.

Heskins wish the Leyland Warriors U9’s and teams for their other age groups the best of luck for the rest of the season.

If you would like to learn more information so you can go and show your support, you can do so right here.

Replacement Anti Slip Inserts for Stair Nosings

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

anti slip stair nosing insertsAnti-slip stair nosings are one of those things that the general public often tend to walk over without a moments notice…. I know I usually don’t, outside of work anyway. However, the difference they make when it comes to reducing slip and fall accidents on steps is incredible.

Many steps in public buildings are made from materials that seem to have been chosen for their aesthetics only. Coincidentally the result is that many of the surfaces have a very low energy, meaning that, surprise surprise, the risk of slips is extremely high. When it’s raining you may as well be walking on ice.

Of course, even surfaces with higher energy surfaces still carry the potential for a loss of grip, due to the grip, or lack of, on a person’s shoes.

This makes anti slip stair nosing incredibly vital to public safety.

Anti Slip Stair Nosing Inserts

application of anti slip inserts for stair nosingsOften stair nosings come in two parts. The metal fixture that is applied to the edge of the stairs themselves and the anti slip inserts. With the main fixture being made of metal, it’s going to take a fair amount of force and more than a lifetimes worth of wear to probably require replacing. It is a fact that the anti slip inserts, however, will definitely require replacing sooner. Particularly in high traffic areas, as poorly maintained anti-slip inserts can be just as dangerous as having no anti slip stair nosings.

Here is a range of Heskins products that make excellent anti-slip stair nosing inserts.

Safety Grip

Heskins flagship material is available in 3 grades; standard, coarse and extra coarse. Standard would be an efficient abrasive to use on indoor applications and some outdoor applications. Coarse and extra coarse would be better suited for outdoor applications exclusively.

Aqua Safe

Aqua Safe is similar to what you see used as anti slip stair nosing inserts on most common applications. The embossed surface makes for excellent anti-slip protection on various indoor or covered areas.


Resilient will perform similarly to Aqua Safe, providing effective slip protection in most general indoor applications. Heskins also produce different variants, with coarse and lean coarse resilient also available. High quality glow in the dark anti slip tape also employs clear coarse resilients anti slip surface. In low light areas this would be perfect for application as anti slip inserts for stair nosings.

Cushion Grip

Cushion grip is rather different to most of Heskins products, but would definitely suit as an anti slip insert for stair nosings. A foamed anti-slip surface is as effective as any for indoor applications.

Heskins can supply any of these in various colours, widths and lengths. Certain post-production custom services to get exactly the size or shape you need can require minimum order quantities.
