Light Reflectance Values in Anti Slip Tape

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

Heskins flagship product Safety Grip has recently been tested for its light reflectance values ( LRV ) adding another piece of vital safety information to Heskins anti slip tape. Allowing our customers to be more informed regarding its use.

What are Light Reflectance Values?

light reflectance values on anti slip tapeLRV is the percentage of visible and usable light reflected from a surface illuminated by a light source. This test is available for companies so building and design professionals can predict how light or dark colours appear. This helps then create the best combination for people, visually impaired or not, to discern the difference between features such as stairs, walls and doors. In Heskins case, LRV helps customers to choose anti-slip tape that is visually adjacent to the application surface. This is not a requirement in all cases, however.

We had our entire colour range for Safety Grip tested. While this is not a test to determine the reflective values of colour, but instead of light and dark, different colours will get different results. This is why measuring all colours will give a true indication, helping you to choose the colour based on your needs in this regard.

We have now added LRV values to the pages of all products tested, once again providing you with more information to provide the perfect anti-slip solution for your facility.

For more information on LRV, you can contact the Heskins sales team by phone, live chat or fill out the contact form and one of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

H0402H Green & White Tapeline Now Available

Friday, August 18th, 2017

TapelineA self-adhesive, durable PVC floor tape with a vibrantly coloured surface. This is Tapeline in a nutshell, easy to apply and slightly thicker than most floor marking tapes you can buy to cope with the rigours of industrial life.

Tapeline? I hear you ask. Why haven’t they talked about it before? I also hear you ask. I’m a keen listener.

Well, to put it simply, PermaStripe and PermaRoute are our most popular floor marking tapes, as most people need something thick enough to cope with marking busy aisles, bays and walkways. More often than not with constant forklift traffic flow. Both the aforementioned can really take a pounding and still stand strong. Withstanding scrapes and still marking the area correctly.

H0402 Tapeline is for facilities that don’t require that level of demand, and the associated costs that come with PermaStripe and PermaRoute. For areas that simply require basic marking, albeit to 5S standards, Tapeline will do the job perfectly, with all the quick application benefits of our more resilient marking tape.

Green and White TapelineWe have recently introduced another colour to the current range, or colour combination to be precise. Green & white hazard H0402H.
