Stainless Steel Plate and Stair Treads Installed on Bush Brothers Stairway & Platform

Situation:

Bush Brothers & Company, a family-owned corporation best known for its baked beans and more than forty other related products, contacted a contractor for a slip resistant solution at their food processing facility. The facility needed to add slip resistance to their portable platform and stairway. SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring was contacted for a solution.

Solution:

SlipNOT® provided Bush Brothers with a 3/16” x 25 15/16” x 81” Grade 2 stainless steel plate with (5) five welded kick plates and 3/16” x 4” x 22 1/4” Grade 2 stainless steel stair treads with 1-3/4” nosing. The SlipNOT® stainless steel plates and treads not only exceeded the requirements of the food processing facility, but also provided 100% slip resistance in all directions.

Impact:

Food processing facilities such as Bush Brothers are constantly exposed to slippery elements like processing liquids, caustics and food components. These slick conditions could result in a slip and fall, which is why the SlipNOT® surface was applied. The SlipNOT® material brought reassurance to Bush Brothers employees who utilize the work platform on a daily basis. The platforms non slip and chemical resistant surface became a permanent fixture at the facility.
