SLIPNOT Launches Cleaner and Degreaser to Further Reduce Safety Incidents in Wet, Greasy, Oily Environments

DETROIT Sept. 19, 2022 – SLIPNOT®,  a leading provider of specialized safety flooring and surface technologies, today introduced Foot Hold by SLIPNOT, offering safety and facility leaders new and innovative choices to help eliminate slips and falls in the workplace. See a video of the Foot Hold application and cleaning process here.

Foot Hold is a powerful water-based cleaner and degreaser for further reducing safety incidents in wet, greasy, and oily areas in food and beverage, industrial and chemical manufacturing, healthcare, commercial, and other building environments. While specially formulated for use with SLIPNOT products, Foot Hold is an all-purpose cleaner for areas of buildings with slip and fall hazards.

“At SLIPNOT, safety is our only priority,” said Bill Davidson, president, and CEO of SLIPNOT. “We recommend conducting regular safety audits, educating employees on slip and fall prevention, applying high friction surface technologies, and ensuring proper cleaning and maintenance. With the introduction of Foot Hold cleaner and degreaser, we can now offer safety and facility leaders an additional easy-to-implement strategy for creating safer, confident, and more productive work environments.”

Foot Hold puts worker safety and environmental responsibility at the forefront. With a formulation that’s highly concentrated, non-toxic, and biodegradable, Foot Hold has a neutral pH, without the dyes and harsh ingredients found in heavy duty cleaners and degreasers.

Foot Hold is formulated in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Safer Choice Program to provide a safer more environmentally responsible solution without sacrificing performance. Additionally, it is also certified by NSF, an independent certification organization that assures consumers, retailers and regulators that certified products have been rigorously tested to comply with all standard requirements, for applicable use as a general cleaner on all surfaces in and around food processing areas, including floors, and walls.

When used as directed, Foot Hold lifts and suspends heavy soils, brine, fat, and blood from surfaces not damaged by water including walls, equipment, and various flooring materials such as rubber, metal, and epoxies. Foot Hold cleaner and degreaser does not leave film or residue that can delaminate flooring, foster bacteria growth, or create new and unintended slip hazards.

Keeping it Clean: Slip Resistant Flooring and Surface Technologies

According to the NSC, slips and falls are one of the most common nonfatal, preventable workplace injuries. SLIPNOT has been solving this challenge for more than 30 years with slip-resistant products for walkways, entryways, stairs, elevated surfaces, ladders, and more. Once installed, SLIPNOT products can eliminate over 90% of slips and falls.

“Specialized safety flooring and surface technologies can last for decades,” added Davidson. “Proper maintenance and the right cleaning products can prolong the life of high traction products, like SLIPNOT. With Foot Hold , facility and safety leaders can stop using corrosive chemicals that can degrade metal surfaces and interfere with safety performance.”

Foot Hold cleaner and degreaser is available in multiple sizes, compatible with electric vacuums and effective when used with manual brushes. It can be purchased together with SLIPNOT flooring and surface technologies or on its own. Visit to learn more about:
