3M™ Safety-Walk™ Slip-Resistant Tapes and Treads

Slips can cause accidents that result in serious injuries at industrial work sites and at home. The prevention of slips and falls and the creation of a safe walking surface is a necessity and/or should be considered in the following:

  • Design and construction of buildings and adjacent areas
  • Manufacture of heavy equipment, machinery and trailers as well as in the design of sports and leisure equipment and vehicles
  • In and around wet areas such as showers, bath tubs, locker rooms, pools and hot tubs where barefoot traffic is present

Help address falling risks by taking simple steps to provide slip-resistant surfaces where safety may be a concern. 3M offers a full range of functional, slip-resistant materials designed for the safety of people in the workplace. Standard rolls and pre-cut treads are available in a variety of sizes, colors and textures ranging from fine resilient, medium resilient and general purpose to coarse and conformable material types.



  • Provide traction on slippery surfaces
  • Pressure-sensitive adhesive backing makes it easy to apply tapes and treads without the use of anchoring.
  • Adhere to clean, dry surfaces without wrinkling, curling, tearing, shrinking or lifting
  • Proven durability for long life
