Food Processing Facility Utilizes Non-Slip Stainless Steel Stair Treads to Improve Safety

The Situation:

Food processing plants must use specific materials that provide safety for food and workers. A food processing world leader that manufactures frozen food products, infant foods and beverages, prepared salads and processed fruits was looking for a material to replace slippery stairs and platforms that become wet during production times within one of their facilities. The facility specializes in manufacturing frozen potato products and the material utilized needed to be slip resistant in the wettest conditions, durable and also be appropriate for use in a food processing plant.

The Solution:

The company decided the best solution for their slippery stairs and platforms would be SlipNOT® stainless steel floor plates and stair treads. The company ordered (2) two pieces of Grade 2 stainless steel plate mill finish and (12) twelve pieces of Grade 2 stainless stair treads. The SlipNOT® slip resistant coating provides a durable solution that will not chip or rust and will be long lasting within the facility.

Not only is SlipNOT® durable and long lasting, it is also safe for use in the food processing industry. SlipNOT® slip resistant stainless steel floor plates are NSF International registered for use in food process plants. The stainless steel plates applied to the stairs will not contaminate food processing machines or the end product. The plates are also easily cleaned with a steam cleaner or power washer providing the sanitation that is necessary in food processing plants.

The Impact:

SlipNOT® slip resistant stainless steel plates were the ideal solution for the application within the food processing facility. The plates offered the company the necessary durability, slip resistance, and sanitation needed for the application. Now, employees are able to utilize the staircases during production time when the stairs are wet without worrying about slip and fall accidents. SlipNOT® stainless steel plates proved to be much safer than the original material used and will provide slip resistance safety in the facility for years to come.
