If so, SlipNOT® can add an aluminum, stainless steel or steel non-slip to your aluminum planking, creating a high traction surface.
An aluminum SlipNOT® surface is available in Grade 1 (Fine) and Grade 2 (Medium). Grade 1 (Fine) is used for light duty applications or areas where minimum surface roughness is desired and Grade 2 (Medium) can be used in nearly every application.
A stainless steel SlipNOT® surface offers a highly durable corrosion and chemical resistance non-slip surface, which withstands the most demanding environments.
Adding a steel SlipNOT® non-slip surface to your aluminum planking not only creates a more durable surface (as aluminum is a softer metal by nature), but is offered in a Grade 3 (Coarse).
Figure out if you need a specific surface or finish
A mill or painted finish may be added to any surface you choose. Mill is the raw material color, with no additives. Painted is offered in safety yellow or black, but must be properly applied so that the slip resistant properties are not compromised.
What are your specific dimensions, such as width, length, thickness and quantity?
Punched and unpunched aluminum planking can be purchased in stock sheets or cut to size and custom formed for specific project requirements.
If you do not have the dimensions, you may want to have an architect, a contractor or a safety professional visit your site.
Research different companies
If your company requires a high quality product, then you may need to do your research to ensure you find exactly what you are looking for. Finding the right company for your application is crucial to employee and pedestrian safety.
Always ask for samples that you could install and test within your facility. This will give you an idea of the quality and surface grade.
Always ask questions regarding pricing, safety and reputability. They should be able to give you a list of references.
Make sure your application meets OSHA and ADA standards
Contacting OSHA and ADA will not only guide you in the right direction, but give you recommendations and standards that need to be met. OSHA and ADA may also have suggestions for reputable companies to contact.
