- TECHNICAL INFORMATION
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.
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.
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.
