The non-abrasive finish of handrail grip tape ensures that it is comfortable for the user and is easy to clean, ensuring there is no build up of dirt or bacteria for long lengths of time. Its inability to retain water ensures that surface freezing is not possible, helping to comply with regulations.
• Prevents cold temperatures of handrails transferring to user
• Increases grip
Anti-Slip Hand Grip Tape for Handrails
Handrail grip is becoming an essential component of a modern workplace or public environment.
This handrail grip is not harsh to bare hands and also offers an attractive appearance. As the H3418 handrail grip tape is non-abrasive it can be easily cleaned using all available cleaning methods. It has the feel of a rubber product yet being plastic has superior dimensional stability. The plastic film upper works as a fantastic insulator preventing chill from penetrating to the hand of the user, for good measure we also added an under-surface laminated layer of PET.
Handrail grip is becoming an essential component of a modern workplace or public environment, so much so that the UK Building Regulations Act 2000 (part M1 & M2) stipulated that handrails need to be ‘slip-resistant and not cold to the touch’. Heskins has proactively taken this challenge on board and created handrail grips that are unique and possess the solutions to these demanding requirements.
Heskins is known throughout the world as the leading anti slip experts, our specialist knowledge has been built over decades of experience and research, first, we focused on the anti slip aspect. A simple solution would have been to use our safety-grip range, this would have created a solution but an abrasive material would have had negative implications for users not wearing gloves.
Heskins decided that an innovative solution would be a completely new design, something never seen before in anti-slip materials; asymmetrically embossed non-slip surface.
Our H3418 handrail grip tape was born, the symmetrical pattern of H3418 was chosen as it is aesthetically appealing whilst possessing the high levels of coefficient of friction (CoF) required. The dimpled patterned surface offers something different; for an industrial application, it allows certainty that all existing and envisaged requirements for non-slip capabilities will be met, all Heskins products come with independent laboratory CoF figures. For a manager of a public environment, we wanted a handrail grip that would not be harsh to bare hands and would also offer an attractive appearance that would detract from the setting, the symmetrical pattern of H3418 handrail griptape easily achieves this.
To ensure that we achieved the insulating effect of preventing it from being cold to touch we chose a plastic film upper. The plastic film works as a fantastic insulator preventing chill from penetrating to the hand of the user, for good measure we also added an under-surface laminated layer of PET.
As the H3418 handrail grip tape is non-abrasive it can be easily cleaned using all available cleaning methods. It has the feel of a rubber product yet being plastic has superior dimensional stability.
Handrail grip tape can be instantly applied on external handrails as well as internal, this is due to the materials inability to retain water, preventing the surface freezing and causing discomfort for the user. Before application, ensure the surface you are applying the handrail tape to is clean, dry and free from any grit or residue or any other contaminants.
