    NEC Approved Tape: The Professional Choice.


    If you’re in the professional events or installation industry, then you’ll probably be familiar with the need to properly affix floor coverings to the floors of whatever space you’re working in.

    There are all kinds of tape you can use to do this. However, many tapes aren’t designed for this specific purpose and as a result have downsides such as not having the adequate adhesive strength for the job and, once removed, leaving sticky residue on floors that’s difficult to clean off.

    We provide the ideal solution. Designed specifically for use at events and exhibitions, our NEC-approved double sided tapes are manufactured with two strengths of adhesive. The side meeting the floor is of low-tack or medium-tack strength to provide a good grip on a variety of clean, dry surfaces, while the side that holds the carpet or floor covering is coated with a high-tack permanent adhesive for guaranteed grip. Crucially, the tape is easy to peel and apply and when removed, leaves no residue and therefore requires no additional cleaning.

    And yes, it’s approved by The NEC Birmingham - the UK’s premier venue for trade and consumer shows. The NEC knows precisely what it’s talking about when it comes to exhibition floor tape. It hosts over 140 events each year, which attract an average 2.1 million visitors. This means that an easy, economical way of fixing carpets and floor coverings to the venue’s floors is an essential piece of equipment.

    We provide two types of NEC Approved tape, the NEC Approved Double Sided Tape and the NEC Approved Double Sided PVC Differential Tape. Both come in 50mm x 50m rolls and are available in single rolls or at great bulk-buy prices. They’re versatile, reliable tapes that can be used for more than exhibition spaces, too. These tapes are great for all kinds of event spaces - from dance floors to marquees.
