When it comes to aluminum vs. plastic stair treads, you have to ask yourself whether you’re willing to sacrifice durability and effectiveness for price.
We know plastic stair treads are popular due to their entry cost. However, unlike aluminum stair treads, plastic is more prone to wear and tear and require sooner replacement.
The life expectancy of rubber stair treads, while cheaper, doesn’t come close to aluminum, our most popular material. In fact, aluminum stair treads may last the entire lifetime of the building such as public transit, parking garages, or other heavily used areas.
At Amstep, our non-slip stair treads are made with an aircraft-grade aluminum base with a mixture of epoxy and abrasive materials. This proves a durable and long lasting solution. Aluminum also provides a more professional-look to your stairs than plastic.
While rubber may be cheaper, Amstep offers affordable aluminum stair treads. Our products are a modern option without the added teardown construction costs. These are great choices for any installation that won’t break the bank or disrupt your day-to-day workflow.
