Printed Barrier Tape

Barricade tape is made with durable tear resistant plastic materials such as nylon, polyethylene or polypropylene.

What is Printed Barrier Tape?

    What are the sizes of Barrier Tape?

    The standard reference when it comes to barrier tape sizes is width and length. In thickness, all tape sizes match. When buying barrier tape, you must consider the size of the area that you want to cordon off.

    Larger perimeters will certainly require longer tapes. If you make a mistake and order shorter tapes, you will end up joining several tapes at the terminals to cover the perimeter. On a standard scale, the barrier tape size is 75 mm x 250 m.

    However, with customisation, you can have variations in both width and length. The barrier tape used by police to fence off accident and crime scenes measures 50 mm x 250 m on average. Depending on your specifications, you can have tapes measuring 70 mm in width by 500 m in length.

      What material is Barrier Tape made from?

      Our Barrier tapes are produced from high strength non adhesive polyethylene (LDPE) in various widths but our most common variations are 75 mm x 250 meters long and 50 mm x 250.

      We can produce custom printed barrier tapes in up to 3 colours on a number of coloured backgrounds, our most popular colours for standard runs are White, Red, Green, Blue Orange, Yellow and Black however we are not limited to just those colours and can print truly bespoke jobs.

      (LDPE) This is a very strong material, that also finishes extremely well.

        What is Barrier Tape?

        Barricade tape is usually a brightly coloured tape that is most commonly used where there is a danger, hazard or to create a divider. For example the police use Blue on White for their barrier tape in England. It creates a barrier hence the name Barrier Tape.

        The printing can also be tailored for the event or purpose for which it is required. For instance, barrier tape for accident scenes may be printed ‘Crime Scene Do Not Cross’ while tapes for construction sites may be printed ‘Road Works Ahead Do Not Cross’.

        Part of the functionality of the barrier tape is in its strength. Most of these tapes are made using high strength polythene or polypropylene material. These are plastic materials that are durable and tear-resistant.

        These barrier tapes serve the same purpose as the printed barrier tapes only that they are either monochromatic or poly-chromatic. For instance, you may come across standard barrier tapes with black and yellow or white and read hazard warnings.

        These barrier tapes are usually pre printed because there is no customisation needed. If you want to block off dangerous areas within your facility to prevent accidents, standard, as opposed to printed barrier tapes, are recommended.

        The lack of customisation in these tapes makes them slightly cheaper than the customised varieties. The only messages, if any, are general just to catch people’s attention and enhance the visibility of hazards.

        The materials used in making standard barrier tapes are like those used in printed barrier tapes. This means you enjoy equivalent strength, tear resistance, and durability.
