Structural Stair Treads

Abrasive Cast Metal

Meets ADA RequirementsAmerican Safety Tread structural stair treads and platforms are in use daily throughout North America. The anti-slip granules embedded in the walking surface create a positive traction system that lasts for the life of the stairway. Several designs are self-supporting, requiring no risers or bracing. Other designs are installed with carrier angles and risers. All treads are now offered with our optional “vision line” colored Abrasive Filler.

Longest Wearing: Effective anti-slip protection that will last the life of the stairway.

Impact Resistant: The alloys used in the manufacture of these cast structural treads and platforms create highly impact-resistant treads to accommodate heavy interior and exterior use.
