What if the slat in the elevator was not black slate tile?
Posted by Next Big Futures on Tuesday, April 11, 2018 13:02:27In a post on Facebook, Slat Slater Hospitality Company (SSH) said it was a mistake to have the slats on the elevator doors made from black slate tiles.
The post was shared by the blog Black Slate in which a commenter shared a photograph of a photo of the elevator door with the caption: “A photo of a black slate floor tile.
This is what you are going to get, you can expect to get a lot of that on your elevator door.”
It said that, although the elevator does not use black slate, there was a “mistake” in the way the elevator design was built to ensure the slates were used to provide the same quality of black slate as the elevator floor.
“The floor is a lot darker in the middle, but the floors are actually made from a very similar material, so if you look at it side by side you can tell the difference,” the post read.
The comment came from a commenter who shared the photo of elevator doors with the comment: “So the door is black?
I was really hoping it would be.”
The comment was posted to the Black Slate blog after the hospital said that its elevator was in “constant use” and that it had installed the slaters because they were “not only superior in terms of quality, but also because they are less expensive.”SSH’s statement did not specify which floor the slatted elevator was on, but it is unclear if the elevator had been installed in a lower floor.
In a statement, the company said: “It was not a mistake in our design of the elevators and they are not black.
It is a product of the building design, which is one of the highest standards in the world, and was built for a purpose.”
We have spent a lot time over the last six months investigating this issue and looking at our processes, and have determined that there was no error and that we are fully accountable for this mistake.
“The hospital did not say whether it would appeal the decision.SSH was the first hospital in the country to install the slated elevator doors.
The company had not been in business for two years before the incident.
It is not the first time a hospital has been fined for using black slate.
In June last year, the state of New York issued a $2 million fine against a hospital in Brooklyn for using a slat tile floor.SSM said it is committed to “taking appropriate actions to ensure that our employees and guests are treated with respect and dignity, and we are continuing to conduct an internal review to ensure our policies are followed.”
