Conformable Anti-Slip Traction Tape

Product code: CON

  • For application on uneven surfaces such as durbar tread
  • Aluminium foil backing has no memory so conforms to surfaces
  • Reduces risk of anti-slip lifting from uneven surfaces
  • 1″ up to 39″ widths available

Heskins conformable traction tape is perfect for applying onto an irregular surface such as diamond treads also known as checker plate or diamond plate.

If you have an irregular surface, you need a product that can cope with the intricacies of this demanding application. Diamond tread can be a very dangerous surface; it is potentially lethal when wet, creating a greater risk of slips. The levels of grip can also be very low; this is measured in Coefficient of Friction or (COF). Applying conventional traction tape does not work successfully, since the peaks and valleys result in stretching of the plastic film. Thus when applied into the valleys it will want to revert to its original flat state, this will then result in the traction tape lifting off the surface and becoming useless. Heskins conformable traction tape has a completely different construction that was designed to work perfectly as diamond plate tape.

When compared the conformable anti slip tape seems very similar to a conventional grip tape, but, instead of a plastic base we use a soft aluminum foil base. This ensures the conformable traction tape conforms to the surface properly. As with all of our tapes, this must also be applied to a clean dry surface. To apply conformable anti slip tape you simply press the tape onto the surface aligning it correctly and with use of a soft rubber mallet (which we can supply), hit the traction tape so it forms into the shape of the diamond tread pattern, reducing the chance of tears and material failure.

The upper surface of conformable anti slip tape is an abrasive mineral coat; the minerals that we apply ensure that the customer receives a product that provides Coefficient of Friction levels far in exceed any State or Federal requirement. Non slip flooring requirements are required on the MIL SPECS MIL-17951, MIL-5044 & MIL-PRF-24667, OSHA and Americans with Disabilities Act 2008.

Conformable Anti Slip Tape Sizes

Rolls of conformable anti slip tape are available in any width from ¾ inches up to 39 inches (black/yellow hazard chevrons is up to 20 inches ). We can produce any length (on request) from 5ft up to 300ft.

We can also produce die cuts, which are suitable for quick application to steps. A wide variety is available, but specific shapes can be produced also. Conformable anti slip tape can be produced in colors and prints matching your specifications. Our custom manufacturing is available dependent on order quantity.
