Stainless Steel Plates Protect Expansion Joints in Honolulu Parking Deck

The Situation:

Honolulu, Hawaii is exposed to many of nature’s different elements. Honolulu’s nickname is “The Gathering Place”, which fits a city in which hundreds of visitors from around the world flock to the numerous beaches and attractions. This constant flow of visitors means safety is a top priority to Honolulu businesses. SlipNOT® was contacted by a fabricator who has been in the contracting business since 1987, to help with a parking deck project for a commercial client. The fabricator wanted to purchase stainless steel slip resistant plates to fit over existing expansion joints in the parking deck.

The Solution:

SlipNOT® provided the client with 1/8” thick 12” x 84” stainless steel plates for their installation. The fabricator waterproofed the expansion joints and then installed the stainless steel plates over them, which allowed for slip resistance as well as protection of the expansion joints. SlipNOT® stainless steel has a file hard surface and is also corrosion resistant, which will stand up to the Hawaiian environment.

The Impact:

SlipNOT® provided the most effective way for the customer to keep the expansion joints protected, while maintaining a slip resistant surface. The stainless steel Grip Plate® has proven to be durable and long lasting in tough and exposed environments. The president of the company stated “The plates are working good. Your product is a great one.”
