Alameda Naval Station was one of the largest naval air bases in the country. The high traffic air base was utilized by thousands of sailors and aircrafts and required a slip resistant surface installed on slippery tarmacs to ensure the safety of workers completing vital maintenance on jets. The slip resistant solution needed to be able to withstand heavy traffic from jets while keeping workers safe.
Recently, Arnold Machinery Company contacted SlipNOT® for a slip resistant material to be applied to catwalks on United States Air Force trailers. The material needed to be durable for heavy use and also provide drainage for liquids and debris to prevent build-up of materials on the catwalk.
