Highest safety for flange connections with “Tayson KLETT®

The applicable directives and guidelines for safety and accidentprevention (i.e. European Pressure Equipment Directive, national laws for safe operation of plants, BG Chemie M 004, etc.) demand protection against uncontrolled spray-out of dangerous media at flanged connections.

In case of a leakage, the safety tape deflects the spray of media and in doing so reduces the line pressure to atmospheric. For more than 20 years this safety tape is well established in the industry. Now its assembly is even more easy due to a hook-and-loop fastener.


  • Extremely easy and quick assembly
  • Closure allows repeated opening/closing and re-tightening
  • Ideal for explosion-protected areas (electric screw drivers
  • Very long lifetime
  • UV and impact resistant – suitable for outdoor installation

How does it work?

In case of pipe flange failure, the safety tape reduces the pressure of the leaking media and reduces it to atmospheric pressure. An uncontrolled spray-out of the dangerous media over a wide area in the plant will be prevented by the safety tape. The safety tape can be used also for vertical pipe installations: pins on both sides of the tape provide a good fit on the flanges.
