Title: RE: Smooth floor plate

Rick,  I was involved in a project where there was a code conflict in California with regards to a walk in freezer.  The health Department rejected the proposal to install diamond plate in the freezer due to sanitation reasons, however, the building department required it.  We settled on coating the concrete floor with an abrasive finish.  Maybe you could see what finishes are available so if it does become an issue, you can make provisions for it.

Subject: Smooth floor plate

Do any of you use smooth floor plate, as opposed to checker plate, for platforms or catwalks, etc?  It seems like I have seen smooth floor plate on some platforms in industrial applications.

If you use smooth plate, is it painted, and are there any problems with slip resistance? The application I am thinking of is a catwalk where there is little or no chance of any moisture being present.
