Heskins®, a leading provider of innovative solutions for safety and visibility, is proud to announce the availability of DOT tape from its UK-based warehouse. This development opens up new possibilities for European businesses, especially those engaged in manufacturing products for North and South American markets or the Middle East, where DOT tape is a regulatory requirement.

DOT (Department of Transportation) tape, also known as conspicuity tape, plays a crucial role in enhancing the visibility and safety of vehicles and trailers. While DOT tape is not certified for the European market, it is a mandatory safety feature for vehicles operating in North and South America, as well as the Middle East. These regions are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), which mandates the use of DOT-compliant conspicuity tape on commercial vehicles.

For European companies involved in manufacturing products for these certified markets, sourcing DOT tape can present logistical challenges and additional costs. Importing DOT tape from manufacturers in America or Asia can be both time-consuming and costly. Recognising this need, Heskins® is making DOT tape readily available from its UK-based warehouse, streamlining the supply chain for European businesses operating in these regulated markets.

Heskins®’ C2 reflective conspicuity DOT tape is fully certified and complies with all relevant regulations. It shares the same construction characteristics as any other DOT tape, ensuring impact resistance, UV stability, and superior visibility. Constructed from a series of prisms, this tape reflects light in all directions it faces, guaranteeing visibility at all times, especially in low-light conditions or adverse weather.

One of the notable features of Heskins®’ DOT tape is its self-adhesive base, which simplifies the application process. This adhesive base adheres securely to various surfaces, including aluminium, steel, fibreglass, and more. The convenience of this self-adhesive base ensures a hassle-free installation process, allowing businesses to maintain their production efficiency.

Heskins® maintains a comprehensive inventory of DOT tape variants in stock, ensuring immediate dispatch for certain roll sizes and kit packs. This availability of DOT tape in various colours and configurations ensures that European businesses can access the specific DOT tape solutions they require without delays. For those with custom requirements or inquiries, Heskins® encourages them to reach out to their dedicated sales team for personalised assistance.

In conclusion, Heskins®’ announcement of the availability of DOT tape from its UK-based warehouse is a testament to the company’s commitment to meeting the diverse needs of its customers. By providing access to DOT tape, Heskins® streamlines the supply chain for European businesses engaged in manufacturing products for certified markets in North and South America and the Middle East.

With fully certified and compliant DOT tape variants readily accessible, European companies can ensure that their products meet the necessary safety regulations and standards, ultimately contributing to enhanced road safety.
