Handrail Grip Tape H3418
The Handrail Grip Tape H3418 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.
The dimpled patterned surface offers something different. The industrial application 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 grip tape 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. Prevents chill from penetrating the hand of the user. For good measure, we also added an under-surface laminated layer of PET.
Non-abrasive. Easily cleaned using all available cleaning methods. It has the feel of a rubber product yet being plastic has superior dimensional stability.
Instantly applied to external handrails. It does not retain water. Also, prevents the surface from 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 contaminants.
