Tips for maximizing the strength of magnetic strips

Are you tired of weak magnetic strips that can't handle heavier loads or keep slipping? Fear not, we have some tips and tricks to help you maximize the strength of your magnetic strips:

Stack up for strength

If you want to increase the holding power of your magnetic strips, stack them up! Using multiple strips on top of each other increases the surface area and creates a stronger grip. For example, you can stack two or three strips to hold up heavier tools in your workshop.

Cleanliness is key

Ensure the surface you're attaching your magnetic strip to is clean and free of debris or dirt. This way, you'll get a stronger bond between the surface and the magnetic strip, preventing any slipping or sliding.

Thickness matters

When it comes to magnetic strips, thicker is usually better. Thicker strips generally provide a stronger hold and can handle heavier objects with ease. So, if you're planning to attach heavy items, consider using thicker magnetic strips for added strength.

Choose the right adhesive

Not all adhesive types are created equal. If you're attaching heavy objects or working in a high-stress environment, choose magnetic strips with strong adhesive. This will ensure that the strip stays in place and provides a strong hold.

With these tips and tricks, you can maximize the strength of your magnetic strips and use them for all kinds of tasks. So, let your imagination run wild and get creative with your magnetic strips!

Magnetic Self Adhesive Strips Stacked


In conclusion, magnetic self-adhesive strips can tackle many DIY and organisation challenges with their strength and versatility. Whether you're a neat freak looking to organise every corner of your home or a DIY enthusiast searching for new ways to flex your creative muscles, magnetic strips are the perfect solution.

Industrial magnetic strip tape buying guide

Magnetic Tapes, Strips & Accessories are a must-have for many workplaces as a versatile and easy-to-change labelling and communication system. However, our industrial magnetic strip tape buying guide shows you new ways to use them.

For easy-to-update workplace labelling systems – and other communication tasks in warehouses – where would we be without magnets? Industrial magnetic strip tape, in particular, is undoubtedly one of the most versatile products you can buy.

As this is so widely used in many commercial and educational premises, manufacturers of the best magnetic tapes have also developed a growing range of accessories, such as magnetic paper! Making this an even more adaptable way to label, signpost and display information on racking, noticeboards, filing cabinets and a wide range of other surfaces.

Stick around, while we unravel just some of the ways to use rolls of industrial magnetic strip tape to match your labelling needs.

Types of industrial magnetic strip tape

It is worth mentioning that investing in top-quality industrial magnetic strip tape is important if you want to re-use it multiple times, and have 100% faith in its reliability.

Beyond that, when buying magnetic tape for workplaces you have two main categories to choose from.

One is unfinished magnetic strips. When you fix sections of this tape to an appropriate surface, it magnetises it. Magnetic self adhesive strips are the ideal way to create memo boards or a handy background to post document holders in plain view. Avoiding the need to drill holes or construct intrusive noticeboards.

The alternative is finished magnetic strips such as the heavy duty magnetic easy wipe racking strip. These are coated in a robust and hard-wearing surface. That coating then enables them to be an easy-wipe-clean surface, when you use dry markers for labelling, for instance. Or, you can add removable labels to this sort of industrial magnetic strip and replace the labels as often as you need to.

More insights on magnetic strip options

Unfinished tape examples and uses

You may have particular labelling and signposting needs in your workplace and locations that make it important to decide how to fix industrial magnetic strip tape in place.

This leads to another set of choices.

You could find a supplier of magnetic self adhesive strips. As the name indicates, you can stick down the tape and create a magnetic surface in minutes. It comes in various widths, to make your life even easier.

Finished magnetic tape examples and uses

The various coated or moulded magnetic tape rolls you can buy have a multitude of purposes. However, here are some of the main ways workplaces use them for identification, information posting and directions.

One option is to buy a roll of magnetic label holders. You can purchase rolls in the width that fits best for your location, cut a strip of the length that meets your needs, then instantly create a system to hold white labels.

Similarly, rolls of magnetic easy wipe racking tape have a gloss surface, so you can fix labels to them in a temporary way for a constantly updating identification system in your storeroom or warehouse.

These come in multiple dimensions and colours too, for a creative way to support colour-coded labelling systems.

Lastly, there are times and places when a heavy duty magnetic easy wipe racking strip is the best solution.

What does ‘heavy duty’ mean in this context? This industrial magnetic strip tape is 0.8mm thick. Ensuring it creates a strong bond with the surface and stands up to considerable wear and tear.

That makes this type of magnetic tape – available in 12 different widths – perfect for warehouse racking, and for when you need to re-use this durable labelling surface repeatedly.

Getting the best magnetic tape and accessories

This is only an overview of the ways to use strong magnetic strips & accessories in workplaces.

It can be equally useful to have other office essentials that possess magnetic capabilities. Other magnetic items we think are office essentials include magnetic document holders. Their magnetic strip allows practical, easy organisation, and makes creating office displays or reminders easy and clear, all whilst keeping documents clean like any other document holder. Some of our favourites are the Clear Magnetic Document Pockets, Magnetic frames4docs and Coloured Magnetic Pockets.

As you will see from our range of items, the possibilities are endless.

4 Uses Of Magnetic Strips In Your Office

Magnetic forces may be scientific and complex, but the advantages of using magnetic strips in your office are really easy to understand. In fact, they can be an ‘attractive’ option for multiple purposes in the office.

Where would we be without magnets? Such an ingenious invention that we now take largely for granted. Even modern technology hasn’t replaced their role in workplaces and homes, including magnetic strips commonly used in offices and schools.

Warehouse magnetic strips are certainly a standard feature, as they help companies to create strategic and clear racking identification systems.

Who invented magnets?

Way back in 1600, a British physician – William Gilbert – concluded that the Earth is a magnet, and you can replicate its gravitational pull by using pieces of iron. However, the discovery of the principle of magnetic force dates back even further, including Roman science experiments and ancient Chinese compasses!

Fast forward to today, and innovative manufacturers have found ways to use magnets in a strip form, to improve workplace efficiency, safety and sustainability.

Including the four uses for magnetic strips in your office we outline below, and lots of other creative uses in stockrooms and warehouse operations.

What are magnetic strips?

First, it would be worth exploring what we mean by ‘magnetic strips’ and the different types of office magnetic strips and accessories available from the best workplace solutions companies.

You will no doubt be familiar with magnetic rack labels and magnetic frames4docs document holders to use on metal surfaces.

However, it is also possible to buy rolls of magnetic tape, in various colours and sizes and with different properties.

The main benefit of these highly cost-effective tapes is that you can use magnetic strips in a multitude of places and for many purposes. All without damaging your product or the surface beneath!

The most obvious application is to provide locational information on warehousing shelving. However, magnetic strips for racking systems can also be a great option for stock rooms, storage areas and even school libraries.

What about innovative office uses for humble but effective magnetic tape rolls?

Uses for magnetic strips in your office

Hanging signs, notices and locational information

One of the reasons this is such a versatile labelling product is that it includes self-adhesive tape that acts like a magnet, enabling you to stick it down on non-metal surfaces and then fix things to it.

Magnetic self-adhesive tape is available in a choice of sizes, and is manufactured to adhere firmly to various surfaces, making it a reliable option. You won’t have to worry about it peeling off easily when used to hold clear magnetic document holders and memo magnets, for example.

Hanging photos and wall art in offices

You’ve no doubt seen all the contemporary research on how a ‘happy’ office is a productive office. Though making your office area a pleasant working environment is actually basic common sense.

So, why not use magnet strips to create an array of visual decorations. This could include providing staff with ways to display photos at their workstation or mounting prints and other artwork around your offices, in a way that can be quickly changed and updated.

No need to drill holes in walls, when you can use magnetic tape!

Easy to change labelling

Keep in mind that it’s possible to find suppliers of magnetic easy wipe shelving strips. That means to make your office organisation system clearer, you could simply cut sections of tape to the length you need, add them to your shelves, racking or filing cabinets, then write information on with a suitable wet wipe marker pen.

You can buy this wipe-clean magnetic tape in a choice of colours and sizes, which can help you to colour code your office storage system, for example.

The cost is low, but this is also a labelling system that is durable and versatile for offices.

Versatile messaging system

As you can buy magnetic tape to write on – then wipe clean to reuse an infinite number of times – you could also develop a handy office messaging system.

For example, wipe-clean magnetic tape on places like your staff room fridge, filing cabinets and doors, can be used to post temporary and constantly updated information.

Wipe clean magnetic tape can also help with stock rotation information if you have fridges or other metal food storage systems.

What’s more, it’s more sustainable than using up lots of paper post-it notes!
