One car manufacturer has been using SlipNOT® slip resistant metal products for decades. From stair treads and nosings to conveyor plates and floor plates, SlipNOT® continues to provide safety to employees. The company needed a new press built and installed in one of their manufacturing facilities. In order to ensure the safety of their press operators, the contractor contacted SlipNOT® with a specific product already in mind: Grade 2 (medium grip), steel plate, painted black. These plates needed to be easily seen within the manufacturing facility and needed to provide sure footing to the employees in the press operations. They decided to order 32 pieces of ½” steel plate, specifically fabricated to various lengths and widths, in order to meet their needs. SlipNOT® had the metal plate pieces cut to size, coated them with the all metal non slip surface, and then painted the surface black in order to ensure visibility. These plates were then welded to a steel structure for stability and installed with the press machine.
