Heskins Anti Slip Tape at the Rio 2016 Olympics


Heskins have once again been asked to provide anti-slip tape for the Rio 2016 Olympics. Find out where Heskins products were used at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Heskins, once again, proudly announces its involvement in the Rio 2016 Olympics. For the third consecutive Olympic event, Heskins has been chosen to supply anti-slip tape, demonstrating the trust and recognition the company has earned in the industry. This time, our products were specifically selected for the BMX course start ramp, a crucial component of the Olympic Games.

To meet the requirements of the event, we were tasked with supplying a 10-meter by 20-meter anti-slip surface using our H3401W standard Safety Grip anti-slip tape. This particular material has been successfully used in the last two Olympic Games, and for the Rio 2016 Olympics, we provided it in a stunning shade of green to align with the colour theme of the event. The anti-slip tape was shipped in rolls of sectioned tiles, which were meticulously pieced together during the application process, resulting in an impressive and visually striking surface.

The BMX event, scheduled to start on the 17th of August, holds great excitement for us, and we eagerly anticipate the remarkable performances of the athletes. As proud supporters of Team GB, we are crossing our fingers for their success and hope to see them bring home the gold medal. Knowing that our anti-slip products are contributing to the safety and performance of the athletes gives us immense pride and satisfaction.

Being chosen as a supplier for such a prestigious and globally recognised event as the Olympics is a testament to the quality and reliability of Heskins’ products. Year after year, our materials have consistently met the high standards demanded by Olympic organisers. This consistency of use demonstrates our commitment to producing top-notch anti-slip solutions that deliver exceptional performance in demanding environments.
