SlipNOT® Transforms Safety Standards Within the Food Processing Industry

June 1, 2006

SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring stainless steel products are transforming safety standards in the food processing industry. In the past stainless steel diamond products and smooth plate have proven inadequate in meeting the growing safety demands among the industry. These options are less effective in preventing slip and fall accidents because the coefficient of friction is significantly compromised in oily or wet conditions. Today old technology has given way to a more advanced and dependable safety solution; SlipNOT®. Worker safety and productivity begins with SlipNOT® non-slip products. SlipNOT® provides the food processing industry with the most technologically advanced stainless steel slip resistant flooring available.

Companies such as: Campbell Soup, Tyson Foods, Cargill, Nestle, Tropicana, Kraft, and Fresh Express among many others use SlipNOT® stainless steel products in their processing facilities to increase productivity and worker safety while reducing injury and liability. Unlike epoxies, tapes and paints which can harbor unsanitary bacteria causing an unhealthy production environment; SlipNOT® stainless steel products help to create a sterile environment suitable for the production of food and beverage products.

NSF approved, SlipNOT® non-slip products are 100% grit free and will not contaminate the food processing machines nor the end product. The patented SlipNOT® process deposits a molten metal plasma stream deposition onto a stainless steel substrate.  The product hardens to the substrate with a bond strength of over a 4,000 psi; unlike any other slip resistant flooring alternative. Without the risk of flaking or chipping, food processing facilities are able to save time and money with fewer costly shut downs due to contamination and decreased sanitation time. SlipNOT® stainless steel flooring products exceed OSHA and UL recommended coefficient of friction and provide maximum traction even in the wet and oily environments found in refrigeration, packaging and preparation areas.

SlipNOT®stainless steel products can be fabricated to meet any project specifications and requirements; stair treads, nosings, mezzanines, and catwalks are all fabricated from SlipNOT® stainless steel products. SlipNOT® products can replace slippery flooring, be retrofitted over existing areas to prevent production down time, or the slip resistant metal coating can be applied to existing structures at SlipNOT® Detroit, MI facility. SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring is the one time answer for your facility safety and productivity needs.
