Slip Resistant Steel Stair Treads and Landings at Monterey Bay Fish Grotto

The Situation:

Named Pittsburgh Magazine’s “Best Seafood” of 2016, Monterey Bay Fish Grotto has been serving premier deep-sea dinners for about two decades. The dining room is not only accompanied by highly rated food, but you can enjoy your meal with a stunning 360 degree view of Pittsburgh's skyline. This past winter, the fine-dining favorite underwent a 3 million dollar renovation that included a new color scheme, transformation of the former banquet center into three different entertainment areas, and the new floor to ceiling windows in the main dining room. The kitchen was also included in the renovations, which required a non-slip retrofit solution for various stairwells and landings.

The Solution:

A local steel supply company was hired by Monterey Bay for a product that would increase traction for their employees, accessing the stairwells and landings on a daily basis. After reviewing the project details, SlipNOT® supplied (2) ¼” thick steel plates & (35) ¼” thick steel stair treads that were painted black per job specifications. The steel supply company contacted SlipNOT®, and after reviewing project details, SlipNOT® provided (2) ¼” thick steel plates and (35) ¼” thick steel stair treads in various lengths and widths that were painted black per job specifications.

The Impact:

Monterey Bay and seafood companies alike are in contact with oily and slick products every day. The treads and plates were painted black for aesthetic purposes. In turn, ensuring that the new platforms and staircases, improved with slip-resistant surfaces, will ensure steady footing and increased productivity throughout the kitchen for many years to come. The restaurant was very pleased with the results and is considering SlipNOT® for their next stair nosing project.
