What is Anti Slip Tape or Anti Skid Tape?
Standard Abrasive Anti-Slip Tape – This is Ideal for general situations without mud. Unlikely to damage bare skin in case of a fall. Grit size approximately 60, or 0.010” average particle. Many colours, widths and specifications available including custom
Coarse Abrasive Anti-Slip Tape – This Anti-slip Tape good for many industrial environments but can be harsh to skin, so not ideal where children or disabled and elderly adults are likely to fall for reasons other than a slip. Grit size approximately 36, or about 0.019” average particle. This is available in many colours and specifications to order
Extra-Coarse Abrasive Anti-Slip Tape – Best choice where mud may be present. Extremely durable because of its extra large grit size. Also, useful where extra strong traction is needed, such as external ramps, sloping driveways, loading docks. Very Aggressive to bare skin in a fall, be careful. Grit size approximately 24, or 0.027” average particle. Available in many colours to order
We always advise you to prepare the surfaces properly with our anti slip surface cleaner and to use Edge Fix to seal the edges for all Safety-Grip anti-slip tape that is frequently exposed to water or heavy foot traffic
The size of the grit is less important than the slip resistance. If the coating is too thick on top of any abrasive destroys its effectiveness by drowning the sharp points that provide wet traction. Our technology and quality control, together with use of tough aluminium oxide
particles (much more durable than silica sand) result in high slip resistance as well as excellent durability in our anti-slip tapes.
Non-Abrasive Anti-Slip Floor/Tub Grip Tapes Water Safe
These tapes are absolutely perfect for areas where the tapes will be submerged in water such as around swimming pools, swimming pool steps, bathrooms, cloak rooms, changing rooms, wet rooms etcx.
Our Standard Aqua-Safe Water Safe non-abrasive anti-slip tape is perfect for barefoot areas and food preparation areas as it is much kinder to bare feet than our Safety Grip abrasive anti-slip tape and is a lot easier to clean! The slip resistance of Aqua-Safe is still very good, but Coarse non-abrasive anti-slip grip tape has phenomenal wet slip resistance!
It’s perfect for boats, ships, vessels, OAP bathtubs, pool decks, and other areas where extra grip on the surface is required. Coarse Resilient will be slightly harder to get perfectly clean than Aqua-Safe, but it’s grip is amazing and is available to order
Spacing of Anti-Slip Tapes
Testing on human subjects shows that a heel slip of three inches is 50 percent likely to result in a fall. Distance between anti-slip tapes in the direction of travel should therefore be no more than 1 1/2 inches. Gaps between anti-slip tapes should be perpendicular to the direction of travel.
On stairs, we recommend you have a a 2 inch wide anti-slip tape contrasting color strip no more than one inch from the nose of each stair tread.
When considering the cost of non-skid tape, consider also the cost of a slip and fall accident. Hip fractures usually require a minimum of a two-week hospital stay plus surgical costs exceeding £65000. Additional damages from falls may include income replacement or death benefit; pain and suffering, and loss of consort by family members; economic losses such as failure to complete contracts, close real estate deals, etc.; decreased quality of life (especially for the elderly); loss of anticipation of future activities, pleasure or comfort (“loss of hope”); and punitive damages
