USCG Cutter – Resolute

USCG Cutter – Resolute

United States Coast Guard Cutter is a term used by the United States Coast Guard for its commissioned vessel. They are 65 feet or greater in length and have a crew onboard that is permanently assigned. This USCGC Resolute is a larger cutter that is 210 feet long. In 2010 this particular cutter was used to respond to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Crew members aboard these cutters are typically required to stand for long periods of time in very tight quarters. This is why the United States Coast Guard chooses SmartCells for their anti-fatigue solution. As you can see in the pictures, installing SmartCells on a coast guard cutter requires very intricate cuts and strict attention to detail. There are stools and poles coming from the ceiling into the ground that require perfectly cut holes as well as ladders and odd shapes to butt up against.

Satech installed 1” black anti-fatigue flooring, a static safe formula that reduces exposure to static shock. Due to the setup of the cutter there was no need for a transition as there were no walk off areas. SmartCells is a perfect anti-fatigue solution for unique areas like this that require custom work.
