Non Slip Aluminum Stair Nosing Utilized by Costco Wholesale for Diamond Plate

The Situation

Costco Wholesale is an international chain membership warehouse carrying brand name products at lower prices. Costco Wholesale Packaging produces innovative packing for products appearing in Costco stores worldwide from food products to printer cartridges. Costco was in need of a permanent slip resistant solution for steps that originally had a diamond plate that was failing to provide a safe non slip surface for employees.

The Solution:

Costco contacted SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring for a permanent solution. After speaking with a sales representative Costco purchased 50 pieces of 2” x 2” x 3/16” x 30” Grade 2 aluminum on aluminum angle nosings to retrofit over steel diamond plate. SlipNOT® nosings can be welded directly to current treads and stringers or bolted in place. Costco purchased the nosings without pre-drilled holes, instead countersunk holes were fabricated in the field for the installation. Costco cleaned off the old taped-on product from the steel diamond plate and installed the SlipNOT® angle nosings.

The Impact:

SlipNOT® slip resistant angle nosings installed on the diamond plate surface instantly reduced the potential for slip and fall injuries in the workplace. After the product was installed, Costco Wholesale Packaging purchased an additional 50 pieces of angle nosing for more steps in their facility.
