Anti Slip Tape – Everything you need to know

Safety is a major concern in most environments these days, which is great for keeping us all safe. Putting in precautionary measures in your home, workplaces and places of leisure gives us an extra layer of protection against accidents. One of the most common incidents are trips and falls which can easily be preventable with the right equipment. Anti-slip tapes are a great solution to minimise the risk of somebody injuring themselves. Let’s look at Anti-Slip Tapes in more detail below…

Where to use Anti-Slip Tapes

You can get maximum slip resistance with minimum fuss by using anti-slip tape, it is high-strength and high-tack meaning it is an ideal product for industrial areas and high footfall areas where slipping is a risk. Anti-slip tape comes in a variety of sizes and colours so tailoring to your needs is always possible.

Anti-slip tapes can be used pretty much anywhere if the surface is clean and dry. Self-adhesive tape will bond to materials such as metal, plastic and wood. You can stick it to lots of different surfaces including:

  • Flooring
  • Staircases
  • Vehicles
  • Corridors
  • Ladders
  • Ramps
  • Emergency exits
  • Swimming pools
  • Building Entrances
  • Loading Docks
  • Garages
  • Kitchen/Food Service Area’s
  • Shop Floors

Anti-slip tape alone cannot prevent all slips, trips and falls, workplaces should implement a clear plan for keeping floors cleaned as well as how to deal with spills and displaying temporary safety signs for when extra precaution is necessary.

How to apply Anti-Slip Tape

Anti-slip tape is very simple to apply to your chosen surface.

  • Ensure your surface has been thoroughly cleaned and is completely dry. (It is up to you whether you want to use primer before applying the tape)
  • Remove chipped, cracked or peeled paint. Also remove any loose residue from the surface.
  • Lay your anti-slip tape onto the surface, carefully peel back the protective backing as you apply the tape. Ensure you press firmly and evenly on the tape. Minimise touching the adhesive side of the tape.
