Stainless Steel Drain Covers Installed in Cutting and Processing Areas

The Situation:

The Maintenance Planner of Tyson Foods®, the world’s largest processor and marketer of chicken, beef and pork, and the world’s second-largest food production company was looking to coat 1/2 “ x 12” x 12” stainless steel drain covers due to slip hazards in their cutting and processing areas. The slip hazards were due to fat and other slippery substances that are created from cutting and processing meat.

The Solution:

Tyson Foods® sent SlipNOT® two 1/2” thick x 12” wide by 12” long stainless steel drain covers to have coated with SlipNOT® non-slip stainless steel. Tyson® could not pull all of their drain covers at once for coating so SlipNOT® recommended that Tyson® send two of their drain covers at a time.

Tyson Foods® was interested in SlipNOT® products because they are NSF approved and exceed all requirements for coefficient of friction specified by ANSI, ASTM, ADA, NFPA, and OSHA. They also liked the fact that SlipNOT® products are easily cleaned by standard methods such as power washing and brushing. Because SlipNOT® can either coat customer supplied drain covers or provide customers with material that is custom formed in order to meet specific project requirements, they were a perfect fit for this job.

The Impact:

The two non-slip drain covers were re-installed and worked great in the Tyson® facility. SlipNOT® lasts years longer that painted-on, taped-on or other non-skid products, so these. SlipNOT® slip resistant drain covers will keep workers safe and increase productivity by reducing injury and liability for years to come. Tyson has utilized other SlipNOT® non-skid products, including mezzanines, crossovers, platforms, stair treads, and many other applications.
