Marine Anti Slip Tape in Kitchens

Thursday, June 22nd, 2017

marine anti slip tape on kitchen floorMarine anti slip tape is not only one of the most recent product additions in the Heskins range, but is the first truly marine specific anti-slip products.

While we naturally expect it to be primarily used in marine based applications, it also lends itself to various other anti-slip applications further inland.

In this case, a customer of ours applied it to the floor of their hotel kitchen, as its mop friendly yet abrasive surface was perfect for increasing safety in their small, yet fast paced environment. This helped to eradicate slip and fall injuries in the workplace, allowing the staff to work at the pace they are used to without risk of slip accidents.

They applied 50mm wide grey marine anti slip tape in parallel lines across the floor leaving the same approximately sized gaps in between. This meant a more cost-effective application as they covered enough surface area for effective slip prevention. Any more would essentially be no more effective, yet more expensive. Supplying Heskins anti slip tape in various roll widths allows our customers to receive a truly cost-effective solution.

While marine anti slip tape is abrasive, the grit used is silicone carbide, which are small glass beads, rather than the aluminium oxide shards used on Heskins Safety Grip. These allow for an abrasive surface that is easily cleaned and doesn’t damage cleaning equipment. You can read more on that here.

Marine anti slip tape is just another product to be added alongside the anti slip tapes Heskins produces and supplies that can be used in kitchen areas. Many of the Heskins non-abrasive anti slip range are also used in many kitchens across the world.

Marine anti slip tape is available for immediate dispatch in various colours, shapes and sizes. Custom options are available dependent on minimum order quantities.

Anti Slip Tape Sheeting: Custom Anti-Slip Production

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Anti Slip Tape SheeterNot all of our customers want roll based anti slip tape. Some require large sheets or strips to specific lengths and widths in bulk. While this would be possible for the customer do, it would be more time consuming for them than for us to do it. With our large anti slip tape sheeters, controlled using fully computerised PLC ( Programmable Logic Controller ) systems that make it very easy for us to cut our products to specific tolerances for our customers. This allows them to receive the product ready for immediate use if necessary.

Much like our crush cutters, Heskins anti-slip sheeters cut products with the same blade, but only one compared to multiple on the crush cutters at one time.

This means that one blade will cut twice every few seconds, rather than long runs cutting large lengths of abrasive tape like the crush cutter. The blade lasts a lot longer, and is much more cost effective to run. However, being for a slightly different purpose means that the two machines and services are incomparable, as they both serve their different purpose as efficiently as possible.

Heskins anti-slip sheeters have been fine-tuned so they cut all Heskins products cleanly and do so to an accuracy of within 2mm. From Heskins marking tape to the thickest, most abrasive material, you can be guaranteed that you will receive a cleanly cut product ready to apply onto any clean, dry surface.

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.
