Handrail Grip Tape
Handrail Grip Tape

This self-adhesive Handrail Grip Tape, which is made of a non-abrasive anti-slip, rubber-like, dimpled plastic is reportedly easy to clean (so no buildup of dirt or bacteria) and does not retain water (so no surface freezing). Methods of application include: horizontal (particularly suitable for long railings that have little to no support bars through the middle; tight-spiral (no pre-cutting a length of material, provides 360º coverage), and space-spiral (uses less tape while still achieving a grippable surface). Available in rolls, sheets, and custom die-cuts. (Can also be used on tool handles.)
