The steel fabricator, having worked with SlipNOT® in the past, contacted the sales department to provide a quote for steel plate stair treads. They provided a drawing showing ¼” stair treads were needed- one piece measuring 50 ½” x 48” and five pieces 12 ¼” x 48” with 1 ½” nosings and 1 ½” risers. By providing a drawing of the treads, Art Van Furniture can be assured that the treads could be installed with ease and needed no further fabrication in the field.
Since the application was located outdoors, the stair treads were painted to help protect against snow, water, ice and other types of moisture found in the Michigan climate. Steel plates in wet environments must be galvanized or painted to help prevent rust and corrosion. The slip resistant surface also ensured that employees transitioning from the warehouse floor to the outdoors will not slip and fall from oils, water and other lubricants found both outside and inside the warehouse.
