Heskins Instructional Videos

Heskins has prepared the videos to inform and advise of best practice when installing our safety products, we strongly believe that seeing and hearing the methods is a certain way to ensuring the installer achieves an effective application.

We are pro-active in our creation of instruc­tional videos, however, if there is a video you would like us to create, please contact us to enquire. If we haven’t planned to make it already, then we will definitely consider it.

How To Clean Anti Slip Tape

Properly cleaning anti-slip tape is essential for maintaining the non-slip properties of Heskins tape. Accumulated mud and contaminants can clog the grit granules, compromising the tape's effectiveness in preventing slips (especially for lower grit level tapes like Extra Coarse, recommended for areas prone to dirt). Mud can also impact the reflectivity or photoluminescent qualities of the tape. Watch our instructional video to learn how to clean Heskins non-slip tape effectively.

How to Fix Anti Slip Tape and Perma Family Tape

In this video, we demonstrate effectively and correctly fixing our tapes in the rare event that an issue occurs. Our tapes are made from strong materials and are designed to be highly durable, so severe damage is uncommon. However, we have created this video as a helpful resource on those rare occasions when it may be needed.

How To Apply Glow in the Dark Tape

Suitable for many areas, Heskins glow in the dark tape can help improve safety during all times of the day, this tape uses photoluminescent powder to provide a strong glow in dark areas. It's designed to give a visible safety solution in darkness, such as a power cut. Our photoluminescent tape works by charging in natural or artificial light sources, so there is no need to worry when the lights are out.

Internal and non-porous applications

The video is suitable for applications that are either internal non-porous applications (conven­tional internal staircases) or external applications that do not need priming (flat metal, pre-sealed wood).

If you have any doubts about the suitability of the surface or if porous we strongly recommend sealing with H3506 surface primer prior to application, for instructions concerning this please see the relevant video.

Porous surfaces

All porous surfaces (wood, concrete or stone etc) need priming prior to application, this can be effectively done with our H3506 Primer.

Watch the video for advice on the best method to seal a porous surface.

Chequer plate, five bar tread, durbar plate, diamond tread etc.

For adhering conformable anti slip tape onto irregular surfaces such as chequer plate. Conformable is specially made for this application, as the aluminium backing carries no memory, allowing to adhere to the patterned surface effectively.
