Safety First: Don’t Slip Up!

One of the most dangerous circumstances in any space is a wet, slippery floor. Slipping and falling is a very common accident in the workplace. A slippery floor can cause many issues and problems, ranging from mild to serious. In any environment, the safety of the people working or passing through the area is of the utmost importance. Even a minor fall can cause long-lasting damage. A wet floor can also cause machinery or equipment to slide, which can be costly and dangerous. Luckily, Rubber Online supplies certain products that can help to prevent these things from happening. As always when it comes to safety, if you fail to prepare, you are preparing to fail. Therefore, please read on to find out how you can prepare to protect yourself and others from slippery situations.

What are Anti-Slip Tapes?

An anti-slip tape is exactly what its name suggests: it is an adhesive tape with an anti-slip surface. This means that you can apply this tape to surfaces or places that are usually slippery and it will aid in reducing the risk of individuals sliding around in these spaces and either injuring themselves or others. These tapes are particularly suitable for workplace environments; however, they can be used within private applications. Our tapes are offered in a range of different lengths, widths, and colours. One fantastic option that we offer is a glow in the dark tape which is a great choice when the tape needs to be visible in areas during the night-time. You can choose whichever tape best suits your application and needs.

What are the benefits of Anti-Slip Tape?

Of course, the main benefit of these tapes is that they increase the safety aspect of any area that tends to be wet by supplying a non-slip material that provides grip for people operating within that area. Another benefit of using tape instead of a mat for example, is that the tape is quite thin so when placed onto a surface there is no chance of a person tripping over the ends. These tapes are easy to apply and can be used both indoors and outdoors. It can be used on either rough or smooth surfaces, such as concrete, metal or wood, just stick it on!

Where can Anti-Slip Tape be used?

Anti-slip tape can be used in a variety of places. If there is a need to protect people from slipping, the tape will come in handy. However, there are certain environments where these tapes are especially useful, such as schools, hospitals, warehouses, garages, stores, and the list goes on. There are also certain applications where these tapes are extremely helpful, if not necessary. These applications include stairs, ladders, ramps, building entrances, and loading areas. Thinking ahead about the possible causes of falls and slips can potentially prevent a lot of accidents and stressful situations from occurring in the future.

 

What is a Wet Floor A-Frame?

A Wet Floor A-Frame is a product that is useful for applications where people need to be warned and cautioned that a certain part of the floor or surface is wet and therefore slippery. It is important to warn people about wet floors because this is a hazardous environment and can cause potential injury or damage. These A-frames are especially convenient when used in public areas that tend to have a lot of foot traffic, such as malls or office spaces. They can be moved around quickly and easily as they are light-weight and are designed to be easy to carry. The bright colour on these frames also ensure that they are very noticeable and therefore able to warn people effectively about the potential danger of slipping on the wet floor.
