NSF Flooring Installed on Tyson Foods Rolling Stairways

The Situation

Tyson Foods, Inc. is one of the world’s largest processors and marketers of chicken, beef, pork and prepared foods. Tyson was founded in 1935 with their headquarters in Springdale, Arkansas. Tyson prides themselves in quality service to customers throughout the United States and more than 90 countries. There products consist of Any’tizers Snacks, Grilled & Ready Products, Heat and Eat Entrees, To Go Products, Fresh Chicken, Breaded Chicken, Uncooked Frozen Chicken, Beef, Pork, Canned/Pouch Chicken and Cornish Hens.

Tyson’s facility in Wilkesboro, NC often becomes slippery due to wet or greasy areas from cooking oils, fluids and debris. Employees often use portable platforms to reach certain machinery, which is why they needed a slip resistant surface. Tyson contacted SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring for high traction certified NSF flooring.

The Solution

SlipNOT® provided various sizes of (27) 1/8” x 10” x 28” Grade 2 stainless steel stair treads with 1-1/4” nosing’s and risers. The stainless steel treads were installed on Tyson’s rolling stair platforms, providing full traction and chemical and corrosion resistance for employees.

SlipNOT®'s stainless steel products are registered by NSF International and are currently used in processing plants such as meat, dairy, beverage and processed foods. Stainless steel products are low maintenance and can withstand the extreme cold of cryogenics and heat of cookers and steamers, as well as daily wash downs and caustic cleaning agents.

The Impact

The NSF flooring treads brought safety, longevity and durability to the newly renovated rolling platforms. Employees no longer have to worry about slip and fall accidents while working on the platforms.
