Marine anti-slip tape has been produced for the marine sector. This does not mean it cannot be used elsewhere. Read how marine anti-slip tape is used in prison.

After discussing with our sales team, marine anti-slip tape was the material of choice. The main reason for this, aside from its grip qualities, was its lack of abrasion, which means should an instance occur where bare skin would make contact, it would not cause any damage as standard abrasive anti-slip tape would. Marine anti-slip tape is also straightforward to clean with a mop, which is not possible with our standard Safety-Grip.
