Non Slip Stainless Steel Flooring at Unilever Plant in Missouri

The Situation:

Unilever USA is a home, personal care, and food products company with 400 brands spanning 14 different categories. Recognized brands may include Lipton, Knorr, Dove, Promise, and Suave, but Unilever is constantly developing new products in their five laboratories around the world. The company employs more than 11,000 people in the United States and generates over $8 billion in sales.

Recently, the project lead at Unilever contacted SlipNOT® in regards to slip resistant stainless steel flooring. They was looking for a durable, non slip flooring product to install on one of their deck processing areas, where heavy carts with plastic wheels pass through, weighing upwards of 2,000 lbs.

The Solution:

SlipNOT® provided (51) ¼” x 5’ x 8’ Grade 2 316 stainless steel plates. Once the high traction plates were installed, the project lead said, “we’ve installed stainless steel plate as a long-term non slip flooring solution in an area of our plant where good traction is essential due to spills around the tanks on the deck and the primary cleaning method being spraying the floor down with hoses. The plates were bolted to the existing surface and then seam-welded to ensure that water would not leak under the plates.”

SlipNOT®’s slip resistant 19W4 steel grating treads were installed on a crossover in the Mt. Vernon, IL plant. The new treads provided a high traction surface for the plants employees.

The Impact:

SlipNOT®’s stainless steel flooring is not only aesthetically pleasing, but chemical and corrosion resistant, requires minimal care, and provides full slip resistant coverage in every direction.

Unilever’s Missouri plant was pleased with the final installation and significantly reduced the chance of slip and falls for employees around the tanks.
