Stuyvesant High School is a New York City public high school located in Battery Park, NY. Stuyvesant High School has an enrollment of nearly 3,000 students and specializes in mathematics and science studies. In 1992, Stuyvesant High School moved from a building on East 15th Street in New York City to a new construction building in Battery Park, NY. Battery Park is a 25-acre public park located on the Southern point of Manhattan Island in New York City. The new building offers students an innovative learning environment and includes state of the art classrooms, athletics and a sky lit cafeteria. However, a concern for school officials was the dangerous walk for students at the intersection of West Street and Chambers Street where the school is located. The intersection is a high volume traffic area and is extremely dangerous to students going to and from school. The school district decided to invest in a $10 million dollar project to build the Tribeca Bridge that would provide students with safe access to the school. The school district was looking for a material that would be slip resistant against outside elements to provide a safe walking area, long lasting and require minimal maintenance.
Stuyvesant High School contacted SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring for a material that would meet their requirements for the Tribeca Bridge. SlipNOT® provided the school with slip resistant stainless steel steps and platforms. Stainless steel was the optimal choice for the project because it is corrosion resistant. Therefore, the stainless steel steps and platforms are extremely durable and will remain slip resistant for years which is ideal for the high volume traffic area. Slip resistant stainless steel is also easily cleaned and requires minimal maintenance in the outside environment. The stainless steel also was an aesthetically pleasing choice and was easily incorporated into the designs of the new high school to create a cohesive look.
SlipNOT® slip resistant stainless steel custom metal steps and platforms have provided Stuyvesant High School with the safety needed for students, teachers and pedestrians. The slip resistant stainless steel stair steps and platforms are long lasting and easily cleaned. The steps and platforms remain slip resistant against outside elements and have provided Stuyvesant High School students, faculty and parents with safe access to and from the school.
