Anti-Slip Tape Fitters
We have a team of experienced Anti-Slip tape fitters and have worked extensively in a variety of industries. Whilst our core activity was manufacturing self-adhesive products for use in the production of Static and Mobile Caravans, we also supplied and fiited anti-slip surfaces for decking areas around park homes, which quickly expanded into providing non-slip surfaces in other areas of industry:
- Gas processing and chemical storage industry: Our latest challenge was to supply and fit anti-slip tape to the roofs of 4 storage tanks at the Seal Sands gas processing Plant in Teeside. The contract was to provide a 1m wide anti-slip walkway around the periphery of each storage tank and to provide anti-slip access to instrumentation points and PSV’s.
Following various site visits and after the relevant risk assessment, a method statement was drawn up and upon approval, work commenced. Cutting Tools were used to produce 1000mmx900mm bespoke die-cut pieces of anti-slip tape, that would seamlessly fit into each segment of the roof surface. Individual smaller die-cut pieces were then fitted to allow access to the various instrument points and valves on each tank and the whole project was completed in 4 days.
- A more recent job was fitting clear anti-slip tape to the base boom of a £3,000,000 Liebherr mobile crane recently purchased by Ainscough Crane Hire. Careful preparation was required as the anti-slip tape was being applied over a vinyl decal and had to accommodate inspection eyes, drainage channels and raised profiles along with the boom. The anti-slip tape was successfully applied and now provides a safe working platform that is no longer a slip hazard. Hillcroft Northwest Ltd stock a huge range of anti-slip tapes for use in Marine, Leisure, Industrial and Agricultural applications and can supply in a wide variety of slit widths or bespoke die-cut pieces.
