Reflective tape is a simple, self-adhesive, hi vis tape, suitable for marking out potentially hazardous or dangerous areas. It can be effectively used in any environment and takes literally minutes to apply.
Formerly just a constituent to some of our other materials, reflective marking tape is now available in self-adhesive rolls.
Reflective safety tape is perfect for application in many areas:
Reflective marking tape is great for marking out vital routes to be used either at all times, or routes to follow in an emergency. All colours are suitable to use for floor marking, however, you can refer to our colour reference guide for advice on which colour to use for your requirements.
Stairways can be marked either as a specific or important way through for access or egress to or from a building or room. Stairways can also be marked to highlight them and remind people to take caution when ascending or descending them.
Marked so workers or guests will be notified to use caution when working or near ledges.
Low hanging objects
Certain parts of structures can be at head height for some, therefore they are required to be marked to prevent injury. By adding reflective marking tape, particularly reflective hazard tape to areas that could cause injury, you can reduce or prevent injuries completely.
Colours & Sizes
Available in plain colour and hazard in widths anywhere from 15mm to 1240mm and up to 10m in length, but as always, dependant on quantity, we can cater to your requirements. All the colours mentioned above are stocked in large quantities, so can be shipped immediately, and samples are available on request.
Left and Right-Hand Variants
We can offer these in all the different sizes that we offer our reflective hazard tapes.
For resellers we can offer a host of options, due to our production conversion machines we can offer shorter rolls of reflective tape, bespoke retail packs, specific core sizes and any other specifics you would like.
Reflective safety tape can also be printed on, so 610mm rolls can be produced to accommodate most machines in the industry sector. Samples are again available to show the quality of the print on our reflective safety tape.
(Please note: Enquire for MOQ’s and printing is not done in-house so please allow extended lead times for this.)
Reflective marking tape is coated with a permanent adhesive coat, which allows for a long term bond, and with it not being water-based, it will not break down under testing environmental conditions. A paper backing liner is applied to protect the PSA ( pressure sensitive adhesive ) prior to application.
Heskins is proud to offer reflective tapes such as H6601 that are RA1 approved, adhering to the high standards of reflectivity and visibility once classified as Class 2 under BS873. While the BS873 standard is now considered redundant, it is still widely recognised and referred to in the industry. Our RA1 approved tape meets rigorous requirements for reflectivity and durability, ensuring top-quality safety and visibility solutions for our customers.
