Gaffers Tape

Popular in theaters and for photography, gaffers tape is a non-reflective cloth tape. Use it to hold down wires to reduce trip risks, for labeling cameras and accessories, or for temporary repairs. Create a DIY photography light box with gaffers tape and foam board to get higher quality pictures for your company's website, catalog, or brochures.

Gaffers Tape Is Sturdy for Temporary Use
This Industrial grade tape comes in thickness from 10.2 mils to 12 mils. It's both water and abrasion-resistant, so you can use it to secure cables in areas where people will be walking on it or where water or other liquids might be spilled. Because of its non-reflective properties, this tape is ideal for keeping stage cables out of the audience's sight. Or you can mark actors' spots or spotlight targets for lighting crews. With a tensile strength as high as 45 pounds per inch of the tape width, you can rest assured it will hold to the end of your event.

Gaffers Tape Is Easy to Use
Unlike other adhesive bindings, gaffers tape is easy to tear by hand, making on-the-fly work simple and quick. Not only is it easy to tear across the width, you can readily tear it into narrower strips without needing scissors or other cutting implements. It's conformable but doesn't stretch or curl, so you can apply it tightly to be sure that cables are completely secured. The strips are removable and leave no residue behind once detached from a surface. Purchasing multiple-roll packs means you always have tape on hand ready to grab out of the stock cupboard.

Gaffers Tape Is Versatile
While most applications for this adhesive tape are best served with the black matte style, it is available in other colors, including red, white, yellow, and several fluorescent colors. Use the brighter shades to help employees or visitors avoid potential trips or to blend into colored carpets, rugs, or other flooring.

What Is the Difference Between Gaffers Tape and Duct Tape?
Gaffers tape is intended for temporary use, unlike duct tape, which has longer-lasting qualities. Because of this characteristic, duct tape leaves tacky residue once it's removed, which gaffers tape does not do. It's typically vinyl-coated cloth with a matte finish, whereas duct tape is coated with polyethylene, making it more reflective.

Can Gaffers Tape Be Used Outdoors?
As long as you make sure the surface to which the tape is applied is clean and dry, it is suitable for outdoor use. Once in place, the tape is relatively water-resistant. Some types can even hold up to high temperatures, so they're suitable for securing props used in photography shoots with bright, hot lights.

Is Gaffers Tape Reusable?
If you apply the tape and need to move it, you can reuse it. However, it may not work so well if the original placement was on carpet or a surface covered in dust or fibers. You do get a cleaner, smoother look if you use a fresh piece of tape. Staples carries a wide selection of office supplies and tape materials for your convenience.
