Hospital Safety Tapes

Hospitals are known for being safe havens; they are a place where people go to work, to get well, have tests or to visit family. Considering hundreds of people are in and out of a hospital all hours of the day, cleanliness and safety should be a top priority. Heskins LLC would love the opportunity to assist hospitals in improving their anti-slip solutions further.

A very pressing matter in hospitals is to keep bacteria rates as low as possible to reduce the risk of infection in patients. All medical areas are cleaned with a Virex type product. This solution is a powerful disinfectant and cleaner that is compliant with OSHA standards for things like blood borne pathogens and many other bacterial hazards that could potentially arise in hospitals. The majority of Heskins materials can be cleaned with these cleaning solutions without worrying about destroying/­deteri­orating the composition of the adhesive or anti slip surface, as well as the equipment used to clean the area. Our materials are designed to be tough and withstand cleaning agents, such as Virex.

If this sounds like a solution to a problem you are currently experiencing please continue to read and see what materials we have to offer and a range of uses for Heskins safety tapes in a hospital.
