With regulations for handrails becoming more strict, we decided we would ensure there was a handrail grip tape on the market that ticked all the boxes…
Requirements for non-slip handrails are becoming more regulated, a long time ago it was only the really harsh situations that would require a non-slip covering on a handrail, now it could just be one for a normal external staircase. With the stipulation that UK handrails (Building regulations 2000, M1 & M2) should be non slip and not cold to touch Heskins created a specific product for this application, our H3418. I am a great fan of this material (especially since we recently changed the adhesive system on it). I think it is our most attractive material yet if ever non-slip tapes ever can be considered attractive. I have recently created a page on our site highlighting its unique benefits, such as;
1. Non-slip surface.
2. Attractive symmetrical appearance.
3. Insulating PVC upper with PET base to help prevent it being cold to the touch.
4. New high strength adhesion.
