Heskins Safety Grip Photoluminescent self adhesive anti slip tape is a tough and durable, self-adhesive anti-slip material that glows in the dark. Use it to provide extra grip on a wide range of surfaces, specifically as an anti slip tape for stairs and stair nosings, and as a visual aid on floors and around doors in areas prone to power failure, guiding personnel in lights-out situations. Glow in the dark shair nosing, shapes and boot outlines can be ordered separately. The photoluminescent material charges from both natural and incadescent (artificial) light, making it an ideal choice for warehouses and workshops, and is available in a plain design, a glow line, or in a hazard pattern.

When the lights go out in an emergency, there’s still an obligation to mark exits and hazards. Heskins Glow In The Dark tapes are highly photoluminescent and allow clear marking of exits and hazards when the lights go out.

Ideal for pedestrian traffic or light vehicular traffic, Safety Grip self adhesive anti slip tape is very easy to apply and can be used on most surfaces, making it particularly useful for workplaces. Once applied correctly (following Heskin's procedures), Safety Grip self adhesive anti slip tape provides grip even if oil, water or other contaminants are present.

The Safety Grip range is available in many thicknesses and colours, including Transparent, Fluorescent Yellow, Hazard schemes in red/white and black/yellow, and Glow In The Dark Photoluminescent. The material comes on rolls (from 19mm up to 1168mm) as well as pre-made shapes; more sizes and custom cuts, shapes and colours can be made to order - contact our sales team by email or on 0113 2455450.

How It Works

Glow In The Dark tape is charged by absorbing artificial or natural light. After around 2 hours exposure to a suitable light source the tape emits a photoluminescent glow that can help personnel identify key features along an exit route.

Under normal lighting photoluminescent tapes will appear a mild green and in darkness they will be white.

The Glow In The Dark materials used to manufacture Heskins products are non-toxic, and free from any phosphorous or radioactive material.

Product Details

The material is constructed from a self-adhesive plastic base film.

The adhesive is pressure sensitive and is protected by a siliconised treated release paper.

The upper surface consists of abrasive aluminium oxide particles held in place by a polymer resin. Prior to setting, the granules are charged by static electricity to help point upwards thus increasing grip levels.

The product is photoluminescent, both the film and the resin are treated. The product is charged by either natural or incandescent lighting. None of the components are radioactive.

When applied, Safety Grip will typically last 3 years, and can be incinerated or disposed of through conventional methods; the waste disposal code is 20.01.04.
