Treads & Nosing for Outdoor Stairs

Amstep Products increases your ground’s safety factor for all users.

Outdoor stairs require more care and consideration than those found indoors due to the exposure to outside elements. It’s important to utilize a material that can withstand the elements and provide a proper grip. Exterior stairs are exposed to extreme summer and winter weather conditions like rain, snow, ice, and high temperatures — all of which can wear down outdoor stair treads quicker. Stair treads and stair nosing from Amstep Products feature an extruded aluminum base and a high performance abrasive compound that provide the perfect, long-lasting solution for exterior staircases.

Anti Slip Outdoor Stair Treads & Nosings

Amstep offers several non-slip solutions suitable for protecting outdoor step treads and providing the proper grip for your foot traffic. Our Series 500 and Series 700 treads and Series 300 nosings are the most popular choices for exterior staircases, featuring heavy-duty aluminum bases and long-lasting, non-slip abrasive particle composite.

Amstep Products non-slip outdoor stair treads and nosing offers plenty of customizable options. Various tread widths are available to increase the anti-slip surface of stairs, and help to improve the grip of the stairs. Amstep’s Glowline™ glow-in-the-dark materials and Sightline high visibility contrasting front nose color can also be integrated into your stair treads or nosings to provide a visual contrast at each stairs front nose. Glowline will also provide better visibility at night or if power is lost helping to prevent missteps from occurring.

There are a lot of options. Please contact us by phone or email if you have questions. We have decades of experience providing the highest quality stair treads and nosings.

Our Series 500 stair treads are crafted from aircraft-grade extruded aluminum and fitted with abrasive particle composite that’s available in 8 different colors. Series 500 treads are the perfect anti-slip outdoor stair tread with the ability to withstand harsh climates and high temperatures. These easy-to-install treads provide an affordable option for improving stair safety in outdoor environments. They come in depths from 8″ to 11″ or more.

If you’re looking to cover just the first 3” to 5” of the step, see our 300 Series renovation stair nosing which offers the same quality of material, just smaller depths. They are available in all the same colors and can include the same options of Sightline and Glowline as the Series 500 treads.

For outdoor industrial areas and greasy environments, many customers turn to our Series 700 stair treads. Originally developed for use in mass transit systems, these anti-slip treads can withstand severe industrial conditions and heavy traffic. Currently in place at train stations, on ferry boats, and in processing plants, they are a great choice for non-slip outdoor stair treads. They are specially designed to disperse liquids, dirt, and other contaminants without delaminating or cracking. These treads are offered in depths of 8 to 11 inches or more.

Best Outdoor Stair Treads for Winter & Summer Weather

Injuries involving stairs occur every year, and some of these accidents have been known to cause serious injury or death. As a result, building operators—whether industrial, residential, municipal or private—need to observe the risks and choose stair treads that are appropriate for each environment.

Aluminum Stair Treads

The aircraft-grade extruded aluminum and specially formulated abrasive material used in our treads and nosing is less affected by extreme weather conditions and high temperatures. Amstep brand products work more effectively to prevent slipping on the stairs. They’re also easily replaced when they become worn by foot traffic or the environment.

Anti-Slip Paint & Coatings

Amstep Products offers anti-slip paint in a variety of colors and abrasive levels, but admittedly, this also may not be the best solution for outdoor stair treads. Paint can easily become covered in snow and ice, negating its non-slip properties.

Rubber Stair Treads

Although rubber and vinyl stair treads may seem like suitable applications for exterior stairs, they do not resist extreme conditions like aluminum. In high heat, rubber softens and becomes more easily manipulated; conversely, in low temperatures, rubber hardens and becomes very stiff. Both of these conditions will impact wear-and-tear and the lifespan of the tread.
