The Importance of Safety Warning Tape & The Different Types

safety warning tape

I’m pretty sure that almost all of us at some point in life (if not every day) have seen a colourful tape pointing us that is forbidden to step a foot on the marked area. Usually, these colourful and sometimes shiny tapes can be seen laid down near swimming pools, in warehouses, on construction roads and even on high visibility areas. Even though today’s workplaces are modern and much safer than the early years, hazards of any kind are still a possible thing, thus a safety warning tape can come in handy. In fact, these tapes play an important role in ensuring the security and well-being of everybody. Generally speaking, there are different types of safety tapes and almost all of them have different backing material in order to make them capable of being applied to any surface be it plastic, metal, wood or cloths.

Reflective Tape

Reflective tape is the most commonly used type of safety warning tape these days and as the name itself suggests, it has a shiny reflective sheen that makes it easy to be seen.

Barricade Tape

Barricade warning tapes have one and only purpose and that is to seal off certain dangerous areas after there has been some sort of disaster, for example, a chemical spill or a traffic accident, however, it can also be placed as a warning to watch out for some sort of heavy machinery.

Hazard Tape

Another commonly used type of warning tape is the hazard one and is usually used for covering the floors, handrails, and steps of almost any factory. To be more specific, this type of tape is used to mark off unsafe places while acting as a guide to most people by forming lines in different colours that lead to a specified place.

Non-skid Tape

Coming in different width and length, this type of tape is not used for getting an attention, but the opposite, it is used to cover wet or slick surfaces in order to decrease the chances of anyone slipping.

Phosphorescent Tape

Phosphorescent tapes are similar to the reflective ones as they are used primarily to attract attention with its brightness. Unlike reflective, phosphorescent tapes are designed for poorly lit or dark places because they can glow in the dark.

Simply put, the primary goals of all these types of safety adhesive tapes are to attract the attention of anyone that sees them, in order to warn people about some sort of danger up ahead, as well as an extra measure to reduce the risks of accidents.
