By the nature of their environments, most utility applications have slippery conditions on walking surfaces that create unsuitable environments for pedestrians and personnel. Accidents have a major impact on utilities; they can be not only economically costly, but human pain, suffering, and lower morale can also serve as resulting consequences.
Adding slip resistance to stainless steel plates was an effective solution specified to retrofit into utility vaults. For this instance, SlipNOT® provided 2 pieces of 1/4” 316 stainless steel plate Grade 2 mill finish custom sized to retrofit into vault covers with 4 1½” holes per the customer’s request. The plates were fabricated to retrofit into the lid, with customer supplied drawings, so the plates would provide a slip resistant surface on the vault cover they had specified for this project.
