Aerial work platforms and lift systems are mechanical devices to provide temporary access for people or equipment to unreachable areas. They are powered by hydraulics or pneumatics and generally used for maintenance, construction work or emergency access.
In these situations workers are performing intricate jobs from height, at times in motion, making slip resistance critical for safety. SlipNOT® products are ideal for transforming work platforms into safe walking surfaces, allowing workers to maneuver more easily, and maximizing productivity.
According to www.worksafebc.com; over the past 10 years while falls from height injuries accounted for about 9 percent of all injuries on a yearly basis, on average they represented about 14 percent of days lost and 16 percent of claim costs paid. Fall from height injury claims with time lost from work are on average $14,000 more costly than all other injuries. Demonstrating from a financial perspective, the impact of a fall from height injury.
- Average cost per claim — all injuries: $16,500
- Average cost per claim — falls from a height: $29,800
A SlipNOT® non slip platform is coated with an all metal surface that is more durable and long lasting than any type of tape-on or paint-on products. The patented SlipNOT® process deposits molten metal onto metal substrates, resulting in a file hard surface between 55-63 on the Rockwell “C” scale and a bond strength of at least 4,000 psi. SlipNOT® products have a coefficient of friction that is greater than or equal to 0.85, exceeding all recommendations set by OSHA, ADA, ASTM, and ANSI.
SlipNOT® non slip platforms – lift, aerial, portable and truck are made to your specifications from:
In contrast to new construction, SlipNOT® products can also be easily retrofitted over existing surfaces by bolting or welding, transforming ordinary platforms into secure, durable, and slip resistant work areas.
