The Road to Cycle-Safe Bridges

  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  Apr 15, 2008

Bridges can be a very unfriendly place for cyclists, bearing dangers that go well beyond the inherent hazard of riding within arm’s reach of vehicles moving at greater speeds. Dirt, debris and especially moisture can make an ordinarily smooth ride slippery and dangerous. That’s why SlipNOT, developer of safety flooring products, adapted its patented cycle-safe gratings and plates to meet the needs of public and private bridge operators.

The SlipNOT Anti-Slip Perforated Plate is ideal for metal bridge decking, gangways, walkways and bicycle paths. Easily retrofitted to existing bridge decks, this non-slip system is durable, rust-proof and strong enough to withstand the wear of daily traffic for many years. The plates are actually created with molten metal that is applied directly to the plate and then bonded at over 4,000 lb per sq in.

Ideal for older bridges that were not originally designed to meet the current bridge safety standards, these plates are quick, easy and safe solutions to install on any bridge rehabilitation project. For more information, visit
