Included within the renovation, SlipNOT® was asked to provide 1-1/4’’ slip resistant road plates to be used as temporary bridge decking for the US-50 bridge over Weems Creek. These plates were installed down the middle of the bridge, which allowed the width they needed. The SlipNOT® plates were installed once the old concrete was taken out. The steel road plates were removed after a couple years, and re-used on another side. Due to high traffic, the bridge needed the strongest alloy possible. SlipNOT® steel has a file hard surface between 55 - 63 on the Rockwell “C” scale and has a bond strength of at least 4,000 psi, which provides a long lasting and durable surface. This became the most optimal choice for Weems Creek Bridge because all SlipNOT® slip resistant products can be easily bolted and welded down to any bridge structure.
SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring is an approved vendor for several departments of transportation such as Michigan DOT, FDOT, Texas DOT, Caltrans and several more, making them the right choice for the Ridgely Avenue Bridge.
