Marking Tape for Social Distancing


During this difficult time, marking tapes for social distancing in essential places are important. Read about Heskins marking tapes for social distancing here.

While the first rule of this is to stay at home (please do if you can), there are still some essential services operating. For the majority of the general public, your most likely contact with other people will be supermarkets. While supermarkets are putting every safety measure in place, sometimes telling people what the rules are is not enough.

A fundamental rule to follow when in a public area is social distancing. The government has recommended that there is a 2-metre gap between yourself and the next person, drastically reducing the risk of the coronavirus passing from one person to another.

For this, it is as easy as applying a visual guide in various places to ensure people can be safe in the knowledge they are at least the recommended distance of 2-metres from another person.

Heskins produce a wide range of marking tape for social distancing that is easy to apply to a clean, dry surface to help a business easily promote social distancing.
