Harsh elements such as meat bi-products, fat, grease, and oil make meat processing plants a slippery work environment and a safety hazard for employees. A major meat processing plant contacted one of their local fabricators, a company that provides facility design, concept layout, equipment fabrication, and design to the meat, dairy, beverage, and pharmaceutical companies, to provide them with a slip resistant solution to these dangerous situations.
The fabricator found slip resistant handrails manufactured by SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring were the ideal solution for these meat processing facilities because of their durable slip resistant surface, complete surface coverage and simple installation techniques. Slip Resistant stainless steel handrails would not only ensure safety, but sanitation as well when coming in contact with harsh chemicals and substances. These non-slip handrails are also 100% grit free, the surface will not chip or flake off. SlipNOT® stainless steel handrails are NSF approved for use in the food processing industry.
The fabricator contacted SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring to purchase Grade 2 slip resistant stainless steel handrails, typically in 1-1/2’’ square stainless steel tubes and 20’ lengths. The handrails were coated on all four sides to ensure employees a secure grip. SlipNOT® can provide handrails in either round or square and 10’ or 20’ inch stock lengths.
They received the 20’ lengths of stainless steel handrails and cut them to size to fit a variety of handrail applications for the meat processing plants. SlipNOT® slip resistant handrails are offered in stainless steel, aluminum and steel to provide gripping traction in a variety of industries, not only the food processing facilities.
SlipNOT® handrails have provided a permanent non-slip solution for meat processing plants. The slip resistant stainless steel handrails provide instant relief for the employees and allow them to work without hesitation.
