Spike Tape on Marley Floors
« on: Aug 03, 2007, 11:34 am »
At the Theatre I am currently working at, all the rehearsal rooms have Black Marley Floors.  We are finding that after we pull up a taped out set that the tape is leaving a mark on the floor, almost as if it is pulling color out of the Marley.  We have tried both cloth spike tape and electrical tape and are still getting the same results.  Anyone have any suggestions?

I have always used electrical tape on Marley and it has worked well. It was recommended to me that I not use spike tape as it can damage the floor.

What kind of marks does your tape leave? I know that after taping out, the floor under the tape is protected from wear and usually looks cleaner when the tape is removed.

You most likely aren't pulling color out, just keeping it in under the tape.
