Steel Plates Installed on Industrial Turntables at Airfloat

Non slip steel tread plate
  • Situation:

    Airlfloat began in 1967 as a pioneer of air bearing technology, creating unique heavy-load movement solutions for over 40 years. Airfloat is based in Central Illinois and works with multiple industries to create material-handling solutions for loads requiring frictionless, omnidirectional movement to products weighing more than 150 tons. Airfloat offers full service engineering, in-house manufacturing and field support services. From standard air skids and platforms to custom-designed and built floating assembly lines, Airfloat helps market leaders revolutionize their manufacturing processes. Airfloat wanted to provide a non slip flooring option for their customers, so they contacted SLIPNOT Metal Safety Flooring for advice.

  • Solution:

    SLIPNOT provided Airfloat with 14 pieces of 3/8” x 5’ x 10’ Grade 2 painted black steel plates. SLIPNOT’s non-slip steel plates were easily installed on Airfloats industrial turntables and flush-floor tables. A purchasing manager at Airfloat states “one of our largest customers requires SLIPNOT to be used on every table we build for them, citing safety as the primary reason. Customers appreciate the added safety and peace of mind offered by the product.”

    SLIPNOT has installed non-slip steel plates on similar applications such as A&A Metal Products. The plates retrofitted around machinery, providing full surface traction for employees. A fabrication manager had said our product has been in their facility for the last 15 years and is still holding up really well.

  • Impact:

    Airfloat appreciated the high-end appearance and durability of SLIPNOT. Airfloat refurbishes many of the products they sell and often after years, or even decades of field service, SLIPNOT always comes back looking and performing great.
