Slip resistant steel grates increase safety on Nissan enter & exit ramps

  • The Situation

    Nissan of Canton was the first automotive plant to open in Mississippi. Since opening in 2003, the Canton manufacturer has produced more than 4 million vehicles, created 6,500 jobs locally, and a notable 25,000 jobs statewide. The 4.7 million square foot facility produces the Altima, Frontier, Murano, NV Cargo, NV Passenger, Titan, and the Titan XD.

    In addition to philanthropic & community contributions, the Nissan assembly plant also places value on the wellbeing of their workforce. SLIPNOT was contacted for a slippery flooring solution for enter/exit ramps from their conveyor and racking areas of 6000 ton presses that were compromised due to very oily conditions.

  • The Solution

    Previously, Nissan had ordered a sheet of SLIPNOT to test in a high traffic zone within their plant. After a successful trial, the automotive plant contacted SLIPNOT and reviewed the project specifications for the new area needing slip resistance. They were provided with (12) 1” x 3/16” x 35-13/16” x various sized Grade 2, 19-4 steel grating that were painted black. SLIPNOT is a long-lasting, high quality product. The longevity of the coating depends on the environment, traffic demand, and proper care-and-cleaning practices.

  • The Impact

    The non-slip grating ramps located around the manufacturing machinery is preforming well in the consistently high traffic and oily environment. SLIPNOT has been utilized in other US Nissan facilities, contributing to the mission of safe walking surfaces. SLIPNOT will provide workers with a peace of mind and sure footing, positively resulting in an increase in productivity.
