Gaffer Tape

If you’re looking for gaffer tape that delivers strong adhesion and durability when you need it most, you’re in the right place.

At No1 Packaging, we stock high-quality gaffer tape options to suit various applications, from securing packages to taping down wires. As one of the leading gaffer tape suppliers in the UK, we give our customers peace of mind that our tapes will deliver a strong and robust taping or strapping solution you can rely on.

Why use gaffer tape?

Let’s start by clearing up a common misconception that gaffer tape and duct tape are the same thing. While they do have some similarities, these strong cloth tapes have subtle differences that can easily be missed by the untrained eye.

Gaffer tape is a powerful sealing tape that has multiple benefits. But, if you’re not sure whether gaffer tape is the right option for you, let us give you the lowdown on this tape’s practical perks:

  • Excellent durability: manufactured from cloth with a rubber adhesive layer, gaffer tape has a robust top layer and strong adhesive bond that can stick to most surfaces, ensuring the tape stays in place
  • Reliable temporary fix: unlike harder duct tape, gaffer tape is designed to deliver a temporary fix or bond rather than a long-term solution. The design of gaffer tape also ensures no sticky residue is left behind on surfaces (such as expensive filming equipment) after use
  • Good heat and moisture resistance: made from fabric, gaffer tape isn’t 100% waterproof so it isn't equipped for long-term outdoor exposure. However, it does offer good resistance to heat and moisture for short-term applications
  • Endless versatility: with so many colours, widths and lengths available, our gaffer tape can be used as a bonding, wrapping and strapping solution for a broad range of uses
  • Easy to apply: our cloth gaffer tape tears easily by hand for quick application without curling, while its pliable material seamlessly bonds and moulds to surfaces for a tight fix

Popular gaffer tape applications

When it comes to gaffer tape, you’ll find it used in a host of different environments and settings. This is all thanks to its endless versatility.

To give you a better idea of where and how gaffer tape could be used in your business, here are some popular scenarios:

  • Film and theatre: black gaffer tape is commonly used in the film and theatre industry for taping up equipment and wires or for securing down on the floor for added safety on set. You may also find white gaffer tape used to help identify hazards on floors or act as a visible floor marker for stage positions or equipment placement on film sets
  • Construction: silver and black gaffer tape are commonly found in construction environments, where they’re used to temporarily fix down wires to prevent tripping. It can also be used to secure items together while waiting for adhesives or glue to set. Bright colours like blue or red gaffer tape can also be used to mark out specific hazards, or to highlight areas during construction work such as utility points
  • Packaging: bonding to most surfaces, gaffer tape’s robust composition and adhesion makes it an ideal option for sealing cardboard boxes and plastic cartons for a stronger, more secure seal
  • Logistics: from warehouses to inside transportation vehicles, gaffer tape often provides a handy solution for marking out specific areas on floors as well as providing a firm binding option that doesn’t leave any sticky residue behind
  • Industrial environments: from taping down machinery wires to binding equipment for storage, gaffer tape is right at home in industrial settings where a heavy-duty tape is an everyday essential
  • Outdoor activities: gaffer tape can be a handy addition for outdoor activities like hiking, cycling and camping. Providing a quick, strong taping solution for on-the-fly fixes like repairing tent rips, securing equipment for transportation, shoe repairs and even emergency plaster and bandage applications, gaffer tape is a valuable addition to every outdoor adventure
