  • Overview
  • Colours

Heskins first produced (photoluminescent) glow in the dark antislip tape in 1998. Back then we thought it was novel and would be of limited interest, there was nothing else similar. How wrong we were, it is now a very popular material. To ensure that our glow in the dark grip tape is highly visible and effective it possesses two separate levels of photoluminescent coatings;


• The self-adhesive plastic base is photoluminescent.
• The grit is held onto the film using a flexible resin; the resin is impregnated with photoluminescent, glow in the dark paste.

During the daytime glow in the dark grip tape appears to be a mild green shade, in darkness or any lights out scenario it emits a bright white light. Photoluminescent Safety-Grip can be charged by either natural or artificial light sources. The duration of the light emission varies according to the amount of light received. It is typically released over a period of a few hours. None of the photoluminescent materials produced by Heskins contains any radioactive products, so can be used in many environments.

Ideal for use highlighting critical areas and especially those prone to power failure.

The grit surface on our glow in the dark antislip tape is the Heskins industry-leading Safety Grip mineral coating. The level of grip is far in excess of any existing or proposed anti-slip legislation and requirement; this includes UK, EU, America or Australia. The deep grits help to prevent clogging by dirt or dust which is often present in industrial applications. Heskins tests materials using DIN, Pendulum and ASTM criteria, test certificates and approvals are available by email.
