NORPAC contacted SlipNOT® to provide a safe solution to replace several areas of diamond plate at a food processing facility. The diamond plate was not providing adequate slip resistance, especially when wet. After review specifications, SlipNOT® provided (19) 60” x 120” x ¼” thick aluminum plates with SlipNOT® Grade 2 aluminum for slip resistance. The plates were then custom cut and installed throughout the facility, including on raised walkways and work platforms.
The areas were the SlipNOT® aluminum plates were installed see frequent water spills, leading to occasional standing water and dangerous conditions. The conditions were even more dangerous on diamond plate, as it does not meet OSHA regulations when wet. However, SlipNOT® exceeds those regulations, wet or dry, ensuring all NORPAC employees have the necessary slip resistance to keep them safe on the job.
