Non-Slip Galvanized Grip Grate® Transforms Slippery Hydrolab at Tyco Fire Suppression & Building Product

The Situation:

An engineering technician at Tyco Fire Supression & Building Product contacted SlipNOT® about providing grating for different areas in their Hydrolab building. Tyco Fire Supression & Building Product has dedicated many hours of research and development into setting the standard for the supression of fire in industrial and commercial settings, as well as other special hazards. The flooring in this situation is often slick and covered in foam, with one grate located next to a set of stairs.

The Solution:

SlipNOT® provided Tyco Fire Suppression & Building Product with galvanized grating in sizes 2-1/2” x 3/16” x 25-1/8”x 64-3/4”, 2-1/2” x 3/16” x 25-1/8” x 64”, and 2” x 3/16” x 19-3/16” x 71-3/4” for their installation. The pieces were cut-to-size which allowed Tyco Fire Suppression & Building Product to fit them in the current spaces. The steel was galvanized to prevent corrosion, which can happen when the product is exposed to water and foam, as in this case.

The Impact:

SlipNOT® provided the most effective way for Tyco Fire Suppression & Building Product to keep their employees safe while working in a slick environment. The galvanized steel grating has proved to be durable and long lasting, even in wet environments. The slip resistant coating allows for employees to walk on the grate without worry about it being too slick, while the grating allows for proper drainage from the Hydrolab.
