Marine Anti-Slip Tape in Prison

Anti-Slip Tape

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.

Heskins marine anti-slip tape has been developed with the marine sector in mind, offering exceptional salt resistance, ease of cleaning, and non-abrasive properties that ensure safe traction. However, its applications extend beyond the marine industry, making it a versatile choice for various environments. In this blog post, we will explore an interesting and unique use of Heskins marine anti-slip tape in a prison setting.

At Heskins, our primary goal is to prevent slip and fall accidents, and this particular case presents an intriguing scenario. We recently discovered that our marine anti-slip tape was utilized in a prison facility to address safety concerns and minimize the risk of accidents. Allow us to delve into the details of this exceptional application.

In this specific instance, a confrontation unfolded within the prison, prompting officers to intervene and diffuse the situation. As part of their response, pepper spray was deployed to gain control. However, an unexpected consequence occurred when the pepper spray residue came into contact with the floor surface. Unfortunately, an inmate slipped and fell due to the lack of traction, resulting in an accident and subsequent injury. Consequently, the inmate has initiated legal action against the prison system, seeking compensation for the damages suffered.

This incident serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of using anti-slip tape effectively within any workplace. The primary objectives are twofold: firstly, to minimize the risk of accidents and injuries, and secondly, to prevent financial losses incurred through such incidents. By employing appropriate anti-slip solutions, businesses and institutions can proactively address safety concerns and protect both their employees and themselves from potential legal consequences.

Upon careful consideration and consultation with our experienced sales team, it was determined that Heskins marine anti-slip tape was the most suitable material for this prison application. The key factor influencing this choice was the tape’s superior grip properties. Additionally, the non-abrasive nature of the marine tape ensured that in the event of direct contact with bare skin, it would not cause any harm or abrasions as standard abrasive anti-slip tapes might. This feature is particularly crucial in environments where physical contact with the floor surface is more likely to occur, such as during altercations or confrontations.

Moreover, Heskins marine anti-slip tape offers the advantage of easy maintenance. With a simple mop, the tape can be effectively cleaned, ensuring optimal performance and prolonging its lifespan. This attribute sets it apart from our standard Safety-Grip tape, which may require additional cleaning procedures.

Now, you may be wondering how Heskins marine anti-slip tape achieves its exceptional qualities. The tape is meticulously engineered using advanced materials and manufacturing processes. It is specifically designed to withstand harsh marine conditions, including exposure to saltwater, heavy moisture, and fluctuating temperatures. These features make it an ideal choice not only for marine applications but also for demanding environments such as prisons, where safety and durability are paramount.

In conclusion, Heskins marine anti-slip tape proves its versatility by demonstrating its effectiveness in a prison setting. By selecting the right anti-slip solution, institutions can mitigate the risks associated with slip and fall accidents, safeguard their personnel, and protect themselves from potential legal liabilities. With its unique combination of salt resistance, easy maintenance, and non-abrasive characteristics, Heskins marine anti-slip tape offers a reliable and effective solution for various industries and environments, ensuring safety remains a top priority.
