Improving Efficiency with Template Application of Heskins Non-Slip Tape: A Customer Success Story

At Heskins, we are always pleased to hear success stories from our valued customers. Recently, we received an email showcasing one customer’s innovative approach to applying Heskins non-slip tape, and they requested that we share their experience with others. In this particular job, the customer was tasked with applying 180 pieces of die-cut non-slip tape, which presented a considerable challenge in terms of time and effort. However, their resourcefulness and ingenuity led them to discover a time-saving solution—a template! Let’s delve into the details of their application method and how it yielded fantastic results.

The customer recognised that applying such a large number of non-slip tape pieces individually would be a daunting and time-consuming task. To overcome this hurdle, they devised a clever plan. They created a template made from PVC, designed to match the dimensions of each application area. The template had precisely cut sections that corresponded to the size and shape of each Safety-Grip™ die-cut tape piece. This ingenious solution served multiple purposes. Firstly, it allowed them to mark out the exact area for application, ensuring precise placement and alignment. Secondly, it facilitated the application of surface primer, Heskins’ recommended solution for sealing porous surfaces, in a controlled and tidy manner, preventing any unwanted overspill.

The advantages of using the template were manifold. Not only did it streamline the application process, but it also ensured consistency and accuracy throughout the job. Each concrete slab comprising the steps required five strips of Safety-Grip™ non-slip tape, and the template made it effortless to achieve a clean and professional finish. As shown in the accompanying picture, the template method resulted in a visually appealing application with the surface effectively sealed and the adhesive of Safety-Grip™ tape protected from moisture degradation. The customer was able to complete the job efficiently and with remarkable speed, thanks to this simple yet innovative approach.

Based on this customer’s success, we highly recommend utilising templates for large-scale non-slip tape application projects. The provided images serve as evidence of the exceptional finish that can be achieved using this straightforward tool. By incorporating a template into your workflow, you can enhance efficiency, save valuable time, and attain a flawless end result.
