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.

In the military sphere, where efficiency and safety are paramount, vehicles’ anti-slip protection plays a pivotal role. Let’s delve deeper into how Heskins’ anti-slip tape solutions offer unparalled assistance in maintaining traction underfoot on military transport.

Handling military vehicles is a herculean task requiring a multitude of strategies to ensure peak operation. Among the many factors that capture our attention, slip protection is an area we devote significant resources to. Why so? Consider the crucial moments during operations when our soldiers need to enter, exit or move within these transport machines. A steady footing in these instances could spell the difference between success and mishap. But where does our anti-slip tape feature in this critical narrative?

Depending on the military vehicle design, the tape can be applied in multiple areas to optimise traction. These could be steps for secure entry and exit, footwells & operation pedals, and even the hull surface to ensure safe movement from one bay to another. Now, you might be asking, “what anti-slip products do we recommend for these purposes?” Let’s explore below.



Safety-Grip, Heskins flagship product, offers abrasive anti-slip material with a legacy dating back to 1997. We’ve seen this material evolve significantly over time, with the base product and its variations undergoing multiple rounds of innovations. The tape is available in three key grades: standard, coarse and extra coarse, each tailored to specific vehicle applications based on the conditions its operators are exposed to.

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.
