food safetySlipNOT®s mission for this project was to supply a durable slip resistant product for JetBlue while taking into consideration the aesthetic needs of the airport terminal. Gensler and Associates designed Terminal 5 to complement and not overshadow an existing historic curvilinear concrete structure designed by architect Eero Saarinen that sits adjacent to the new Terminal 5. The use of stainless steel in the construction of the new terminal created a seamless look when integrated with the historic structure. Its clean and upscale appearance along with its resistance to corrosion appealed to both Gensler and JetBlue.
