Anti Slip Die Cuts on C-17 Trainer

Retail and Distributor Products

We recently supplied a large kit pack of anti-slip die cuts for use on a C-17 training aircraft. Read about what we supplied them with here.

HeskinsĀ® LLC recently supplied large anti-slip die-cut kit packs for a Boeing C-17 Globemaster III training aircraft. Using anti-slip die cuts on aircraft floors is a cost-effective and efficient solution, providing excellent non-slip properties while covering a significant surface area. This project required meticulous planning to ensure the order was produced precisely and delivered within the shortest possible time frame.


Why did our customer choose black aircraft tape for the training plane?

We utilized our black standard Safety-Grip tape as the base material to produce these anti-slip die cuts. This material offers the anti-slip properties necessary for the demanding training environment. The choice of black color was also deliberate, as it helps prevent trainees from getting distracted during their training programs, ensuring their focus remains on the task at hand.

Collaboration with the training squadron engineers was crucial in completing this project. We worked closely with them, listening to their valuable insights and information to advise on the material selection and application layout. This collaboration ensured maximum efficiency in the utilization of the anti-slip die cuts.

The application of these anti-slip solutions is not limited to simulation or training environments alone. The goal is implementing the same effective anti-slip measures in full-service vehicles, extending safety from the training centers to real-life operational situations. Doing so enhances safety and minimizes the risk of slips and falls in critical situations.


Why did our customer choose a die cut aircraft tape solution?

Die-cutting allows for precise customization of the anti-slip solution to fit the specific contours and dimensions of the aircraft surfaces, ensuring a seamless and tailored fit, maximizing coverage, and minimizing any potential hazards caused by ill-fitting materials.

Die cuts can cover large surface areas efficiently, providing comprehensive slip resistance across critical sections of the aircraft floors, which is especially important in high-traffic areas where the risk of slips and falls is higher.

Die-cut solutions offer consistent shapes and sizes, ensuring uniformity throughout the installation. This uniformity enhances the aesthetics and provides a standardized level of slip resistance, promoting familiarity and predictability for the personnel using the aircraft. Die-cutting minimizes waste, making it a cost-effective solution for large-scale applications.

Heskins pre-cut shapes eliminate the need for on-site trimming, simplifying the installation process and reducing potential errors.


Can you customize Heskins anti-slip tape for aircraft purposes?

At HeskinsĀ® LLC, we take pride in our range of custom services catering to our customer’s needs. Our tailor-made anti-slip product manufacturing enables us to provide materials that meet exact specifications. We can manufacture Heskins base materials in any color, matching Pantone or RAL references. Furthermore, we can adjust the grit surface and adhesive properties to suit the intended application environment.


What die cut shapes and sizes can Heskins produce for aviation?

We have a fleet of post-production machines capable of creating virtually any size, shape, or form of anti-slip roll or die-cut to accommodate diverse requirements. This flexibility allows us to deliver cost-effective products that maximize material performance while keeping costs low, meeting both practical and budgetary considerations.
