High traction steel floor plate utilized on new and existing work platforms at Toray Plastics.

The Situation:

Toray Plastics is a subsidiary of Toray Industries Inc., “the world leader in synthetic fibers and textiles, carbon fibers, plastics, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and high-performance films.” Toray Plastics manufactures high quality foam and films which are then utilized in numerous industries including housing, automotive, commercial and food. Their products are turned into food/product packaging, labels, solar control windows, roofing, flooring underlayment, wire/cable, and vehicle interiors among many other applications.
Toray was looking for a slip resistant surface to remedy a few slippery areas in one of their facilities. The platforms needed were of different shapes with various uses. One platform was already in the facility but was slippery as it had a diamond plate surface. The other two platforms were custom designed by Toray Plastics for specific machine access.

The Solution:

A Toray Plastic’s mechanical engineer contacted SlipNOT in order to add a high traction surface to the platforms needed. SlipNOT provided various sized 1/8” thick, Grade 2 (medium course), painted black, steel plates based on the engineers specifications. Toray then installed the plates into their needed spaces creating instant safety.

The Impact:

Toray Plastic was very happy with the SlipNOT solution and the mechanical engineer was able to provide this feedback when asked to describe the platform projects:
“Equipment Platform (New): In this project I designed a new platform to fit around one of our existing pieces of equipment. This platform featured four independent sections, two of which were on wheels, while the other two were stationary. SlipNOT's accuracy in deck plates made it easy to fabricate all of the sections and ensured they would all align correctly.”
“Equipment Platform (Resurface): We had an existing platform similar to the one above on a different piece of equipment, that platform was originally surfaced with aluminum diamond plate. Due to the oily nature of our process the deck surface would often become slick and unsafe for technicians to work. I recreated the drawings for all of the deck plates and had SlipNOT fabricate replacements, the results can be seen below. Overall the SlipNOT product has drastically reduced the slipperiness of the platform and greatly increased worker safety!”
SlipNOT products including plate, grating, perforated plate, expanded metal, and ladder rungs/covers are an excellent choice for both new projects and for refurbishing existing structures. Retrofitting SlipNOT products over existing slippery diamond plate is a common application and has been implemented in numerous companies from different industries.
