Stainless Steel Slip Resistant Products Important for Safety
by Grace Lemieux of SlipNOT®
Stainless steel has been developed to resist a number of corrosive environments. It is an earth friendly alloy, which can be melted down, recycled or made into something new. Stainless steel is extremely versatile and has a significantly longer lifespan than products made of other materials.
Stainless steel is used in many industries such as domestic, architectural, transportation, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, medical, wastewater treatment and food and beverage. As far as food and beverage, stainless steel flooring is the preeminent choice. It is attractive, hygienic and requires minimal care.
SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring provides slip resistant stainless steel flooring products such as ladder rungs, grating, floor plates, stair treads, nosings, among many others. All of these products withstand the extreme cold of cryogenics and heat of cookers, as well as daily washdowns and caustic cleaning agents. SlipNOT®’s stainless steel products are NSF registered for use in food processing facilities and will not contaminate food processing machines or the end product.
According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) a coefficient of friction of 0.5 or higher is necessary for certain work tasks, such as carrying objects, pushing or pulling objects or walking up and down ramps. Integrating slip resistant stainless steel flooring not only provides an aesthetic appeal and corrosion resistance, but it offers durability and 100% traction in all directions.
