Detroit, MI (PRWEB) September 19, 2008
The Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington D.C. is making safety priority by integrating state-of-the-art safety technology into the park. SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring Grip Grate® will be used in several areas of the 163-acre zoo. Various sections of the park including the Asia Trail, along with the Seal, Invertebrates, Amazonia and Upper Bear areas will be re-furbishing walkways and platforms using SlipNOT®'s non-slip galvanized steel Grip Grate®.
With up to two million guests from all over the world visiting the zoological park every year, public safety is just as a much a priority as is animal safety. Wet conditions caused by rainy days, dewy mornings, or grounds sprinklers can create a hazardous environment for both visitors and zoo employees. Having used epoxies and paints in the past as slip and fall deterrents, Facilities Management was looking for a more permanent solution for these areas; a product that would not flake, wear or chip and need no reapplication. Another benefit to using SlipNOT®'s non-slip galvanized steel grating is unlike other carbon steel alternatives it will not corrode
SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring is a leader in slip resistant safety flooring and products. Today, this women-owned (WBENC Certified) privately held company is technically advanced in anti-slip surfaces, and unequaled in capacity. W.S. Molnar Company manufactures and manages SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring products at their facility in Detroit, Michigan, as well as selling through independent sales representatives across the country and overseas.
