“In the past we used salt and chemicals to keep the stairwell free of ice and snow, but the heavy foot traffic associated with this area was tracking residue into the building, damaging interior floors, and creating a safety hazard. We knew we needed an alternative solution and we found it with HeatTrak.”
Reducing winter-related slip-and-fall accidents is a serious concern at Citi Field, the stadium that is home to the NY Mets. The facility maintenance team there recently installed a HeatTrak Snow Melting Mat to reduce snow and ice buildup on one of the stadium’s walkways.
At an elevation of more than 6,000 feet, snowfall can average 25 inches a season. With some 8,000 workers at the base, reducing winter-related slip-and-fall accidents is a serious concern. "We needed an alternative solution and found one with HeatTrak.”
To meet the challenge of outdoor safety, the facilities maintenance team there recently installed HeatTrak Snow Melting Mats to keep campus walkways clear of snow and ice. "We knew we needed an alternative solution and we found it with HeatTrak.”
“Keeping people safe is our team’s number-one priority. With the HeatTrak snow melting mat system we’ve seen a decline in slip-and-fall accidents and, commensurately, a decrease in our liability risk.”
“We were badly in need of a solution because none of the traditional techniques could be implemented here, typically we use salt around the airport, but the heavy traffic of these particular locations brought salt residue into the building, which caused a safety hazard, and also damaged the floors.”
