Hazard tape eh? All the same, isn’t it? Well…. no! Below we explain our different variations on our black/yellow hazard anti-slip tapes.
You might think all hazard tapes are created equal, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! Not only do we have a variety of black/yellow hazard anti-slip tapes to choose from, but they’re also far from uniform. Each tape is designed with unique properties and aesthetic features in mind, ensuring that there’s something to cater to all your safety needs, no matter the circumstance or environment.
Popular colours and grades indeed shift with the changing of the seasons. Weather and light levels play a significant role in this trend. Currently, as we’re entering the darker mornings of September here in Europe, our black/yellow chevron hazards are experiencing a surge in popularity. This contrast is particularly effective during these dimmer conditions, whereas plain colours tend to dominate during the brighter periods.
A common question we get asked is, “Do the colours on hazard tapes matter?” The answer is yes, they absolutely do! The different colours aren’t just about making your space look appealing; they’re primarily about visibility and safety. So, let’s delve into the specifics of our three variations of black/yellow hazard anti-slip tapes.
H3401D (Standard)/H3402D (Coarse) Double Print Hazard Safety-Grip is our bestseller. But what makes it so special? Its unique and distinctive differentiation in colours. A jet-black combined with a bright, solid yellow provides a stark contrast, boosting visibility to the maximum. This differentiation results from printing before and after production, which assures the highest levels of contrast.
Now, you might ask, “What if I prefer something less stark?” That’s where the H3433D Vivid Hazard Safety-Grip comes into play. This hazard material is known for its lighter colours. It stands out for its bright and visible nature but is a bit more subdued than our double print variant.
For those seeking a cost-effective solution without compromising on visibility, our H3434D Shaded Hazard Safety-Grip is the perfect choice. This variant is base printed and then top coated with aluminium oxide. It gives us an excellent value anti-slip tape material with high levels of visibility while remaining competitively priced.
“Heskins’ hazard anti-slip tapes are available in many different roll sizes and die cuts off the shelf, but what if I require a custom solution?” Well, fret not! We are always ready to discuss custom anti-slip solutions, contingent on the order quantity.

What are the advantages of using black/yellow hazard anti-slip tape?
The black/yellow hazard anti-slip tape serves two primary purposes. Firstly, the vibrant colour contrast improves visibility, drawing attention to hazardous areas or objects. Secondly, the anti-slip feature enhances safety, reducing the risk of slips and falls.
How does weather affect the performance of Heskins’ hazard anti-slip tapes?
Our tapes are designed to withstand various weather conditions. However, in darker conditions, such as those in the autumn and winter months, the high-contrast black/yellow tape is especially effective due to its visibility.
Are Heskins’ hazard anti-slip tapes suitable for both indoor and outdoor use?
Yes, our anti-slip tapes are designed to perform in both indoor and outdoor environments. They are made from durable materials to withstand high foot traffic and weather conditions.
Is the H3434D Shaded Hazard Safety-Grip less effective because it is cheaper?
Not at all. The H3434D Shaded Hazard Safety-Grip is our most competitively priced product, but this does not compromise its effectiveness. It’s base printed and then top coated with aluminium oxide, allowing for high visibility and excellent anti-slip properties.
What should I consider when choosing the right hazard anti-slip tape?
Consider the area where the tape will be applied, the amount of foot traffic it receives, and the environmental conditions. Also, consider the visibility needs – the black/yellow tapes provide a high level of contrast and are thus excellent for highlighting hazards.
Can I order a custom size of the hazard anti-slip tape?
Absolutely! At Heskins, we offer a variety of roll sizes and die cuts. If you need a more custom solution, we’re more than happy to discuss these depending on the order quantity.
