Trimtape’s grout line tapes, which range in width from 1/4 inch to 1 inch, are laced with strands of fiberglass for strength. Layout marker lines appear every four inches of tape. “It’s a huge help in laying out patterns, such as tile patterns,” says Trimtape co-owner Mark White.

The company’s scoring tape is 1⁄2-inch wide, fiberglass-reinforced tape with a black line printed down its center and breaks every 4 inches. It works as a guide for diamond-blade saw cuts. When using the tape, cutters will be able to follow a line that won’t be easily obscured or disturbed by dust. What’s more, the tape keeps dust from cuts off the surrounding surface. “Even if you’re on a warehouse floor cutting an expansion joint, it helps you make a fast, quick line that won’t go away,” White says. “It’s easy to see.”
