Same stuff they put on stairs @ ski resorts....
Weld some of this on there...
I don’t think Matt is that old yet.....
Slip and bust a knee on that stuff you'd wish left it alone...
I've slipped done the splits from the bed to the ground... I step off slowly now...holding a handle mounted on the frame...
Since we're throwing out ideas on how to be safe, here's a good one. I like to do things that save time. For example, I shower with my dirty dishes and wash them while in there. While shampooing my hair, I rub the dirty dishes against my head, scrubbing it clean with my hair. 2 for 1. Saves time and water. Another method I use often is I clean all my tools on my bed. The picture below is how I do it.
Happy I can help.
So you’re Canadian too?
Can you show me what you're talking about?
Nevermind...I saw the shin crusher above. No thanks
I've slipped from the box floor before onto the ground before--
now I've learned to Slow down and hold on to the hand grip when entering and exiting any van or box truck.
You know the diamond plate can be slick, especially wet. The ramp on my trailer is diamond and I’ve fallen out of it rolling rugs up it, with customers help of course!!
Matt. Do nonskid like we do on ships.
Paint it with enamel and sprinkle coarse sand on the wet paint. When it is dry, blow the excess sand off and paint a second coat over it to lock in the sand.
Mask off areas you don’t want non skid, or to make an attractive pattern. Let it cure completely before using. I’d recommend using a hardner to speed it up. Any paint store.
It will last a few years and can always be renewed for next to nothing.
Sticky tread tape is also cheap. Welded treads are not. Both can develop unseen corrosion underneath which is difficult to access. Just do it my way and name your next legitimate child “Stephen.”
I’d listen to Stephen.... those dudes work around wet and slippery for a living......
To be fair, technology has moved on. You can buy nonskid paint and apply it directly to a taped and masked surface. I’m just cheap, being a BDPH.
I want so hard to learn something here but all of you guys are such jokesters!
That's expanded metal.
