Reaching out to SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring, the Safety Education Training Coordinator obtained a quote for cut to size aluminum plate that would span the 12’ of flooring they needed to cover between the Machining Center and product racks. These plates would be installed over the existing concrete in the area, creating a safer walking surface for the operators of these machines. Meridian Magnesium chose to order 1/8” x 60” x 84” plates with a Grade 2 aluminum coating. The plates were cut to the required sizes and shipped to the customer wrapped in plastic to protect the aluminum plates and surface during transit.
Once the material arrived to the customer, they were able to cut out the angles and notches that were needed for installation. SlipNOT® can fabricate the material with angles, holes and cut outs but Magnesium Products of America chose to fabricate in house to cut down on lead time. Once they were finished, the plates were fastened to the concrete flooring already in place in the Machining Center.
