Printed Anti Slip Tape
Heskins are pleased to offer a custom printing service for the safety tape we manufacture. Read more about Heskins custom printed safety tape service here.
Heskins has always offered printed safety tapes, but previously, we have always sub-contracted the printing process to specialist companies. The reason for this is that the machinery required to print onto anti-slip tapes, both abrasive and non-abrasive, as well under-surface printing for our heavy-duty floor marking materials was very complex and expensive. I always said that for these reasons we would never print our own. However, with changes in circumstances, we’re happy to say that we have changed our mind!
In early 2020 we started the project to print onto our own materials. Our objectives were to print full-width and full-colour to our own safety tapes with a durable print finish that even included white prints, which is very rare for printers.
Launching a new production capability during the strict COVID lockdowns was not easy! By late 2020, we had put the machinery together and began the process of modifying it to work with our safety tapes. This was completed about 2 months before publication of this post!
We are happy to say that Heskins now has in in-house custom safety tape printing service that prints in high-quality to Heskins anti-slip and marking tapes ready to meet your requirements. The past year has been a massive learning curve perfecting the print process on our different materials, but all effort has been worthwhile. We’re happy with the amazing, durable and high-definition print quality, it is amazing!
The printer has been heavily modified so it winds the material with 100% accuracy, this is vital to allow us to slit it after printing. You can choose any of our Safety-Grip and non-abrasive range fully printed and slit to any width (minimum design and/or width restrictions apply between materials). We can print full colour onto any of our materials, the printing especially looks great on our deep industrial coarse materials, the valleys give it a 3D appearance. We now produce H3402W white coarse safety-grip and this materials looks amazing when printed!
Die cutting abrasive anti slip materials is never easy but when printed it adds an even more complicated problem! We have a solution which means that you receive the printed material, accurately printed and cut to the exact shape. For non-abrasive we have a different cutting process but it is still 100% accurate.
Our tolerances for die cutting are 0.1mm
Heavy-duty Floor Marking Tapes
Our unique range of heavy-duty floor marking tapes are available printed to your design. Our floor marking tapes are the most durable and thickest in the world, our thinnest floor marking is still 0,5mm thick (around 10 times thicker than most floor marking tapes). We can under-surface print to make them incredibly durable.
