For decades, diamond plate has been a default safety plate for many designers. Today’s applications have shown this material to be inadequate in creating productive work environments. Once the raised pattern becomes wet, it could become hazardous.
Customers are able to ship previously purchased diamond plate to SlipNOT® for coating, although SlipNOT® prefers to apply its coating to smooth floor plate due to superior performance and longevity. SlipNOT® does not supply or recommend using diamond plate, but offers this option for customers when replacement is not an option.
An excellent alternative to diamond plate is SlipNOT® slip resistant aluminum plates which are ideal for lightweight applications where corrosion resistance and durability are required. SlipNOT®’s high traction aluminum surface is three times harder than the substrate, making it economical based on its long lasting characteristics. SlipNOT® aluminum plates can be coated with a non-slip steel, stainless steel, or aluminum surface, giving it greater versatility. The plates can meet specific specifications by being cut-to-size or fabricated into products such as stair treads or nosings.
SlipNOT® aluminum plate applications consist of the following:
- Vault covers
