Anti-Slip Tape – The Facts, The Benefits, and The Uses

These days, more than ever at any point in history, safety is a prime concern. Legislation regularly passes through Parliament; warnings are found on the streets, in shops, and even on take-out coffee cups.

Of course, there's nothing wrong with taking solid safety precautions. After all, no-one wants to find themselves involved in a easily preventable accident. A trip or a fall is all it takes to put someone out of action for weeks – but there are ways to limit such occurrences. We think one of the best ways is using anti-slip tape.

You may not realise it, but there are a whole range of anti-slip tapes. So let's take a little look at the various types there are, and why you could benefit from them.

Better still, it's waterproof and weatherproof, so even an ice age couldn't put an end to the Everbuild anti-slip tape. Probably. The silicon grip-based tape has a strong self-adhesive, meaning it'll stick to almost every common surface you can think of.
