SAVANNAH, GA (Sept. 7, 2023) – Great Dane is pleased to announce an exclusive agreement with SLIPNOT®, a leading supplier of specialized safety flooring and surface technologies.
Applied to the doorways for safer equipment access, SLIPNOT is now standard on all 2025 Great Dane Everest trailers equipped with roll-up and side doors. SLIPNOT products convert metal surfaces into high-friction areas that help eliminate slips and falls.
“Safety is one of our core values at Great Dane. We want everyone to go home safely every day, whether they’re one of our employees or one of our customers,” said Rick Mullininx, President and COO of Great Dane. “We understand the challenges drivers face on the job, and we’re continuously working to provide the safest products available. SLIPNOT is a premium offering and an exceptional solution that helps drivers feel confident while operating our equipment.”
Once SLIPNOT is installed, nearly all slips and falls can be avoided, even in the toughest conditions. SLIPNOT products are designed for durability and ease of maintenance and offer the lowest cost of ownership of any slip-resistant solution on the market today. All SLIPNOT products are manufactured in the U.S. in the company’s factory-controlled environment in Detroit, Michigan. As the only transportation solutions provider exclusively offering this product, Great Dane continues to lead the industry with innovative customer experiences and end-user safety.
“We’re excited to include this premium feature on our Great Dane refrigerated trailer line,” said Chris Hammond, EVP of Sales. “The performance of SLIPNOT will help us increase the safety of our trailers with a durable, maintenance-free solution, giving our customers more time to focus on the delivery of goods in a safe and efficient manner.”
“Great Dane’s industry leadership is due in part to their commitment to safety for their people and the people who operate their trailers,” said Kevin Koder, CEO of SLIPNOT. “The SLIPNOT team is delighted to be part of Great Dane’s innovation process, bringing new products to market that address real hazards like slips and falls on wet and greasy trailer surfaces.”
