The comparison between standard Safety Grip and very thick Safety Grip. Click to zoom.
For many years we have been requested to produce very thick anti slip materials, but achieving this has created many production problems. The thickest plastic films that we can purchase to make our products from are typically no thicker than 1.4mm, the choice of films above 0.5mm becomes very difficult to source and the limited range is terrible, as we cannot specify colours or properties. We have historically resisted trying to produce thick anti slip tapes, as we have tried to source the films we need (the MOQs are huge) and change our production processes to handle the new depth, but a thick product makes slitting almost impossible. In early 2015 we made the decision to produce 2mm thick Safety Grip. The decision was fraught and is quite literally a gamble! We have worked with one of the world’s main film producers and have committed to their ginormous MOQ, and alongside this, we have modified the necessary production machinery as well as invested in a new range of high-volume crush cut blade holders.
A grit grade inbetween standard and coarse.
As of July 2015 we are producing 2mm thick Safety-Grip in one grit grade (in-between standard and coarse) and one colour; black. 2mm anti slip tape (the actual thickness is slightly more due to adhesion applied etc) does have so many uses, it stands proud in a recess (we can make to any plus or minus tolerance as required), provides depth and has high tensile strength properties. It is supplied in rolls or die cut shapes and is due to us buying the base film in such a large quantity it is very economically priced.
