Eldorado National was seeking a solution to slippery steps on their commercial buses and wanted a product that would provide the highest level of slip resistance for passengers while being able to withstand installation in a high volume foot traffic area with minimal maintenance. ElDorado was also seeking a solution that would be light weight so it would not add any additional weight to their buses. Another necessary requirement was a product that could be painted. It was extremely important for ElDorado’s final product to be painted safety yellow so there was a high level of visibility for passengers entering and exiting buses to ensure passengers would be able to safely utilize the buses.
