FireKeepers Casino Utilizes Slip Resistant Stainless Steel Stairs for Safety and Aesthetics

The Situation:

FireKeepers Casino, a recently constructed casino located in Battle Creek, MI, contacted a local fabricator for their reputation for quality and dedication to excellence. The fabricator specializes in custom manufacturing and installing staircases for industries ranging from residential to health care, educational facilities to corporations and museums to casinos, among many others. FireKeepers Casino wanted to ensure that their patrons could safely maneuver throughout the casino without risk of falling down their stairwells.

The Solution:

The fabricator knew that safety and aesthetics were vital components for the staircase being fabricated for FireKeepers Casino. They contacted a sales representative from SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring and worked directly with them to determine what would be the best solution for the requirements of the staircases at the East entrances and the glass monumental stairway.

SlipNOT® applied their unprecedented stainless steel slip resistant Grade 2 coating to custom fabricated stair nosings supplied by the fabricator. They also supplied customized templates to SlipNOT® which were adhered to the nosings for the stainless steel stairs before the slip resistant SlipNOT® coating was applied. Once the coating process was complete, the template was peeled off leaving the customized pattern required. The pattern chosen for this application, which appropriately reemphasized their theme, were flames.

After much consideration and debate, the fabricator opted for a solid slip resistant coating, covering the entire walking surface. Although the SlipNOT® slip resistant coating created an aesthetically pleasing appearance, complete safety was more critical.

The Impact:

Choosing safety over appearance has proven to be the right choice. The customized nosings for the stainless steel stairs are not only visually aesthetically pleasing, but also provide a safe, durable and reliable solution for their stainless steel stair application.
