H3418 Anti Slip Handrail Grip Tape


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;

With the regulations for handrails becoming more strict, we understand the importance of providing a handrail grip tape that meets all the necessary criteria. Gone are the days when non-slip coverings were only required for extreme situations. Nowadays, even a normal external staircase needs to adhere to the UK handrail stipulations (Building regulations 2000, M1 & M2) that demand non-slip surfaces that are not cold to touch. That’s why Heskins has developed a specific product to cater to these requirements – our revolutionary H3418 Anti Slip Handrail Grip Tape.

Now, you may be wondering, what makes H3418 stand out from the rest? Well, let me tell you. As a fan of this material myself (especially since we recently enhanced its adhesive system), I can confidently say that it is our most attractive non-slip tape yet, if such a thing can be considered attractive. We have dedicated a whole page on our website to highlight the unique benefits it offers. Let’s delve into some of them:

  1. Non-slip surface: H3418 boasts an exceptional non-slip surface that ensures optimal grip and stability. With this tape on your handrail, you can rest assured that accidents caused by slipping will be greatly reduced, if not eliminated entirely.
  2. Attractive symmetrical appearance: We understand that aesthetics matter, even when it comes to safety products. H3418 features an eye-catching symmetrical design that adds a touch of style to your handrails, without compromising on functionality.
  3. Insulating PVC upper with PET base: Nobody wants to touch a freezing cold handrail, especially during chilly British winters. That’s why H3418 is specially engineered with an insulating PVC upper layer and a PET base. This unique combination prevents the tape from becoming uncomfortably cold, providing a pleasant and comfortable experience for users.
  4. New high-strength adhesion: We have recently upgraded the adhesive system of H3418, making it even more reliable and long-lasting. This high-strength adhesion ensures that the tape stays securely in place, withstanding the test of time and heavy usage.
