One of our customers recently got in touch with one of their new products, with some of our clear grip tape on it…. it looks awesome!
Heskins Clear grip tape is a versatile and innovative product that has gained popularity in various industries beyond skateboarding. Its unique blend of transparency and grip has opened doors to creative applications that are not only visually appealing but also highly functional.
One of the standout features of clear grip tape is its transparency. Unlike traditional grip tapes that use aluminium oxide, a naturally opaque material, our clear grip tape utilises a specially designed abrasive material that maintains its see-through quality. This transparency is a game-changer, allowing it to be seamlessly integrated into designs and surfaces where aesthetics matter.
The skateboard industry was one of the first to recognise the potential of clear grip tape. Skateboarders have always had a keen eye for style, and the combination of a transparent grip tape with LED lighting systems on skateboards has created a visually stunning effect. Illuminated skateboards featuring our clear grip tape not only provide exceptional grip for riders but also turn heads and grab attention with their eye-catching aesthetics.
Beyond skateboarding, clear grip tape has found applications in various industries, including architecture, interior design, and automotive customisation. Let’s explore some of these creative uses:
- Architectural Applications: In architectural and interior design, clear grip tape can be used on glass staircases, walkways, or floors. This not only adds an element of safety by providing traction but also maintains the clean and modern look of the glass surfaces.
- Automotive Customization: Car enthusiasts and customisers have embraced clear grip tape to create unique interior and exterior effects. It can be applied to accentuate specific areas of a vehicle’s interior, such as the dashboard or trim, while providing an anti-slip surface. Externally, it can be used on rims, spoilers, or body panels for a sleek, transparent finish.
- Marine Applications: Clear grip tape is ideal for boats and watercraft, where aesthetics and safety are paramount. It can be used on decks, swim platforms, and boarding areas to prevent slips without obstructing the view of the water.
- Retail and Exhibits: Retailers and exhibit designers have used clear grip tape to enhance displays and walkways. It ensures safety for shoppers and visitors while allowing the focus to remain on the products or exhibits.
- Home Improvement: Clear grip tape can be applied to household surfaces like stairs, bathtubs, or entryways, combining safety with a modern aesthetic.
What sets clear grip tape apart is its durability and longevity. It maintains its transparency and grip performance over time, making it a cost-effective choice for long-term applications. Unlike cheaper, low-quality tapes and signs that fade or disintegrate quickly, our clear grip tape retains its integrity, saving both time and money in the long run.
At Heskins, we take pride in offering high-quality products that cater to diverse industries and creative applications. Our clear grip tape is a shining example of how innovation and quality can come together to unlock new possibilities.
