Question: I have an uneven surface, but I need to apply anti-slip tape. What do I use?
This is a question that we receive a lot. What tape should be used if you have an uneven surface, like a truck tread plate, and need to apply an anti-slip tape?
While our Premium Grade Gator Grip Tape may look like it would be the best choice, the issue is how the tape will conform. The Premium Grade is intended for a smooth surface and does not conform well to an uneven surface like a truck tread plate.
The best choice for this type of application is our Gator Grip: Foil-Backed Anti-Slip Tape. The foil backing conforms to the grooves and curves of an uneven surface and adheres just as well as our Premium Grade Tape. Even surfaces such as uneven concrete or stair nosing would be ideal places to use Foil-Backed Tape.
Along with being able to adhere and conform to uneven surfaces, our Foil-Backed Tape is available in multiple widths, standard black or hazard yellow black color and meets or exceeds OSHA 1910.24, 1910.26 and ANSI B101.1
