Increase Trailer Side Guard Safety with DOT Tape

Retail and Distributor Products

DOT Tape is a great add-on for side guards on large trucks. Our reflective DOT tapes help alert motorists and pedestrians of the potential dangers of being too close to a semi-truck.

Side guards have been around for a very long time, but most people don’t know the purpose of these metal bars. Here is a great example; Think about the movies ‘The Fast and The Furious’ just for a second; when they are racing down the interstate and decide to drive their car underneath a semi-truck, barely clearing the bottom of the trailer! If those semi-trucks had side guards, nothing would be able to pass underneath their trailers. This is what they are intended for. Keeping pedestrians and other vehicles safe while on the roads. Side guards will keep traffic away from their undercarriages and back tires.

Sometimes additional safety measures are needed to ensure that every possible precaution is taken, in order to keep people safe. That is why Heskins LLC is offering DOT tape as a secondary safety subsidiary to Side Guards. Not only will side guards prevent vehicles from moving under the trucks but adding DOT tape will create a hi-viz warning to keep people alert of the dangers when riding too close to a semi.

Unfortunately, accidents can and do happen. With side guards and our DOTC2 tape, we can help reduce annual accident rates involving large trucks. We are proud to offer several different varieties of DOT tape so that you can meet DOT standards as well as stay within budget.
