They say, “What goes up must come down”. In the case of stairs, coming down is the much riskier proposition. While trips and falls occur going up the stairs, they tend to be more minor in nature. Trips and slips going downstairs lead to much more dangerous falls which can lead to a significant injury and liability. That’s where safety stair treads and stair nosings give you a big advantage.
Non-slip stair treads are used to cover existing steps for added safety, and a variety of materials are used for this purpose. The main idea behind adding them is improving the stability and the grip of each step while providing an additional amount of traction. They are extremely effective at reducing the risk of slipping or falling on a staircase.
Whether you are in the process of refurbishing, building or designing a new commercial, industrial or residential building, treads and nosings are great options for stair safety.
Extending the Life of Your Staircase
Stair treads aren’t only great at improving safety, but they also protect the stairs from the daily traffic. They minimize the scuffs, scratches and stains that mar the surface. They take the brunt of the wear and tear and prolong the lifespan of your stairs, therefore, minimizing your maintenance costs. Replacing these tread covers is much less costly than pouring or rebuilding a set of stairs.
Easy to Replace
Even when they have become worn out and damaged, they can easily be replaced with new ones, keeping the surface underneath highly protected. They can also be very helpful in strengthening and protecting the underlying construction. Replacing the renovation treads is relatively easy and does not involve rebuilding the stairs unless they have severely degraded. Installing stair treads over your steps will act as an investment on your property for years to come.
