Green Conformable Anti Slip Tape Applied at a Power Plant


Green conformable anti slip tape was recently applied at a local power plant. Find out why conformable anti slip tape was used for this application.

Heskins green conformable anti-slip tape has recently been applied throughout the site of a local power plant. Most of the site has benefitted from the application of conformable anti slip tape to increase safety around the site, without introducing any potential hazards. Conformable antislip tape is a unique product within the Heskins range.

Most of Heskins anti-slip materials have a gritted top surface applied to a plastic backing. This was not an option for the decision-makers of the power plant, as the presence of plastics, in the event of a fire, would create a lot of smoke and noxious odours. Conformable antislip tape is backed by a very soft aluminium foil. The aluminium foil will not handle a flame, therefore will not burn, making it impervious to combustion.

The foil backing which gives conformable anti slip tape its name, as the aluminium backing helps it conform to irregular surfaces, and with aluminium having no inherent memory, it will remain in shape without lifting.­ This gives conformable more benefits for the power plant, aside from its anti-slip surface and flame retardancy (tested and certified to CAA FAA specifi­cation), as many of the walking surfaces are metal plate, which can become slippy in wet weather. By applying conformable to these walking surfaces, this also removes this hazard from a working day.

Heskins stock colours of conformable anti slip tape available for immediate dispatch are black, yellow, orange and black/yellow hazard. The power plant purchased green conformable anti-slip tape, making use of Heskins ability to create custom anti-slip products.

Dependent on order quantity, Heskins can create virtually all of their products in colours matching Pantone and RAL references, as well as giving customers the options to receive products in specific shapes and sizes also.
