Anti Slip Tape: The Three Grades of Safety Grip
|Standard, Coarse and Extra Coarse Safety Grip.|
- Standard: The most widely used anti slip tape grade, and therefore the most popular. This is due to it’s capabilities of being used in a lot of areas. The abrasive coating allows it to be applied in internal and external environments, and areas exposed to moisture of water logging in footwear is used. Heskins standard anti slip tape is graded as 60 grit.
- Coarse: These minerals are slightly larger than the standard, making it a more abrasive material, and more suitable for use in industrial or construction areas. Using this in areas exposed to loose dirt or liquids is ideal. Heskins grade this one as 36 grit.
- X-Coarse: The most abrasive anti slip tape that Heskins manufactures, it’s totally unique. The grit has been produced so it is very large, and when applied creates large valleys in-between, that makes it suitable for heavy industrial application, impervious to certain amounts of mud, clay and snow & ice. It also features a thicker backing plastic carrier and higher grade ( HG ) adhesive than the standard or coarse for further increases in durability, so it can cope with its intended environment. Heskins grade this as 30 grit.
