Pro Tapes® has been making Pro Gaff® gaffers tape since 1977. That's more than 40 years of actively perfecting the highest quality gaff tape available. Pro Tapes has worked closely with the Arts & Entertainment industry over those years, innovating adhesives specific to marking stages, holding lights, concealing wires and covering tripping hazards on sets.
Gaffer tape was traditionally used for the film and theater industries by professional Gaffers. A Gaffer is a lighting tech who uses gaffers tape to secure lights in position and conceal wires across floors, preventing tripping hazards. Brighter color gaffers tape is also applied to stages as spike marks helping performers and stagehands find their marks - even in low lighting.
Gaffers tape is now more widely used as a duct tape replacement. Unlike duct tape, it's highly removable from most surfaces and a better choice most anywhere you would typically reach for duct tape. You'll notice the benefits right away as you tear the first strip off the roll.
