Slip Protection on Military Vehicles


Slip-protection on military vehicles is one of the many key aspects of optimal operation. Read about the anti-slip tape we offer for army transport below.

Working with vehicles in the military is no mean feat, and every advantage must be taken to ensure optimal operation. What interests us most is, of course, slip protection. A sure footing during operations, as well as general entry and exit of these vehicles is vital much of the time.

Dependent on the military vehicle, anti-slip tape can be employed in a variety of ways. Either on steps for secure entry and exit, foot wells & operation pedals and even so far as the hull surface for safe traversal from one bay to another.

You can find a selection of our recommended anti-slip products for use as anti-slip on military vehicles below.



Heskins flagship material. Since 1997, our abrasive anti-slip material has gone through extensive innovations, both in the base product and many variations coming from it. Heskins Safety-Grip is primarily available in 3 grades: standard, coarse and extra coarse. All lending themselves to different applications on a vehicle which is decided dependent on the conditions its operators are exposed to. More details on each Safety-Grip variant can be learned by visiting their respective product pages. Variants such as chemical resistant and thick Safety-Grip are also available.


Coarse Resilient

More suited for army transport interiors, coarse resilient anti slip tape is a non-abrasive safety tape, that possesses high levels of CoF (Coefficient of Friction). It is kind to bare skin and clothing while providing exceptional grip. Passenger bays would benefit greatly from the use of coarse resilient anti slip tape, due to it’s non-abrasive, easy to clean surface. Many variants are available, including thinner and thicker versions.


Marine-Anti Slip Tape

Manufactured for the marine industry, Heskins marine anti-slip tape can also lend itself to other areas, such as army transport. It’s grip enhancing S2 glass bead surface provides exceptional grip while not being abrasive, making it suitable for many areas on a vehicle. It’s ability to be used on all surfaces is not only for it’s great slip-protection, but it is also very easy to clean. So much so, you can easily clean it with a map. Something not possible on standard abrasive, as the surface will destroy any cleaning equipment such as that.



Another non-abrasive from our line up of safety tapes. Chosen due to its ability to be applied around extreme angles. The reason this is possible as FlowGrip is very thin, while remaining durable, with a uniquely designed adhesive to guarantee exceptional hold.

As many military vehicles feature angular surfaces, FlowGrip is a great option as slip-protection for internal and some external surfaces, such as handles.
