Making Decking/Porches Safer with Anti-Slip Tape and Bolt Down Plates

Anti-Slip Tape

It’s a sunny day, and your friends and family are over for a barbecue. Everyone’s laughing and having a great time – until someone slips on your wooden deck or porch. Unfortunate as it may sound, falls and slips are common accidents that can occur in our home’s outdoor spaces, especially on decking and porches.

Thankfully, preventing these mishaps is easy with Heskins’ anti-slip tapes and bolt-down plates. We’ll answer some frequently asked questions about these products that can guide you through the process of making your deck and porch safer.

What are Heskins anti-slip tapes and bolt-down plates?

Heskins anti-slip tapes are adhesive-backed, grit-surfaced tapes that provide extra friction on surfaces, reducing the likelihood of slips and falls. They are easy to apply, durable, and available in a variety of colors and sizes.

Heskins bolt-down plates, on the other hand, are rigid panels with a high-grip surface. They can be mechanically fixed to uneven surfaces with screws, ensuring a secure and long-lasting non-slip solution.

How do fall and winter conditions affect the safety of my deck or porch?

The cold, wet weather of fall and winter can make your decking or porch slippery and unsafe. Accumulated snow and ice, as well as wet, decaying leaves, can reduce the traction on these surfaces, increasing the risk of slips and falls.

Decking and porches often have uneven surfaces due to the natural wood grain and construction gaps, making them more prone to slips, especially when wet. By applying Heskins anti-slip tape or installing bolt-down plates, you can increase the traction on these surfaces, reducing the risk of slips and falls significantly.

How can Heskins anti-slip tapes and bolt-down plates help?

Heskins anti-slip tapes and bolt-down plates are designed to provide extra grip on surfaces, making them safer to walk on, even when they’re wet or icy. They work by creating a high-friction surface that reduces the risk of slipping, making your deck or porch safer to use throughout fall and winter.

Are Heskins products resistant to harsh weather conditions?

Absolutely! Heskins anti-slip tapes and bolt-down plates are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions. They are water and frost resistant, and they maintain their grip even in low temperatures. This makes them an ideal solution for enhancing safety on your deck or porch during fall and winter.
