Slipping & falling is not uncommon in the restaurant industry. Given the nature of the work and environment, industrial kitchens in restaurants often have slippery floors (cooking oils, water, etc.), and fast-paced foot traffic. Besides proper footwear and cleaning, there is more that can be done to keep restaurant workers safe.
One of the most popular and effective methods to comply with OSHA’s standards and keep workers in restaurants safe, is by implementing non-slip stair treads. Besides railings, 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.
At Amstep, we’ve been providing over 100 years of slip protection. We provide you with the highest quality stair treads and nosing in almost any size and length. Our products comply with all ADA and OSHA requirements and our Glowline™ products are UL 1994 compliant. For the restaurant industry, we hope to continue our legacy in keeping people safe.
Amstep 700 Series Anti-Slip Stair Treads for Restaurants
Amstep 700 Series Anti-Slip Stair Treads were originally developed for mass transit stairways, but are perfect for restaurants. They can withstand severe impact and extremely heavy traffic without cracking or delaminating. Their unique walking surface consists of a special anti-slip nonskid formulation, bonded to a heavy duty extruded aluminum base. The anti-slip surface maintains its integrity for the life of the tread.
