Anti-slip tape

Floor where the anti-slip tape has become worn

Anti-slip tapes can be an effective way to increase the slip resistance of an area of flooring.

Tapes won't physically change or damage a floor permanently. They can be a quick and easy way to improve the slip resistance, but as with all surface treatments there needs to be regular monitoring and maintenance.

If tape is used to increase slip resistance, care must be taken not to leave large gaps between strips. If there are wide sections of exposed floor between the strips it is likely that someone will be able to slip.

Tape needs to be securely fixed to ensure that it does not lift and become a trip hazard.
