To minimize the probability of slips and falls on stairways and staircases, increase the coefficient of friction of the surface that the foot or shoe comes in contact with. This higher friction surface will provide better traction and will lessen the possibility of stairway accidents.
Amstep’s Stair Tread Products
Amstep offers several stair tread models to increase the safety of your walkways:
The Amstep 500 series, for renovating existing staircases, is crafted from heavy-duty extruded aluminum and fitted with our exclusive, anti-slip, abrasive particle composite. Available in sizes ranging from 8″ to 11″. Deeper steps can be accommodated with multiple pieces (contact our sales department). These easy-to-install treads provide an affordable option for improving stairway safety and providing long-lasting durability.
For heavy duty industrial areas and greasy environments, many customers turn to our 700 Series. Originally developed for use in mass transit systems, these treads can withstand the severe industrial conditions and heavy traffic. They are specially designed to disperse liquids, dirt, and other contaminants without delaminating or cracking. These treads are offered in 8 to 11 inch depths and can be configured to cover depths even greater than 11 inches.
For applications which require higher visibility such as schools, train stations, marine vessels, and sports stadiums, Amstep Products offers the Sightline option. This choice is perfect for installation in dimly lit areas or for providing clearer and safer steps for the visually impaired. Sightline can be added to any of our Series 200, 300, 500, or 700 nosing and treads, and is available in any combination of standard colors.
Amstep’s cutting edge, non-slip and glow-in-the-dark stair treads are available in all versions of our 200, 300, 500, and 700 series products. Unlike most other stair part manufacturers, our photoluminescent option is comprised of the same anti-slip technology as all of our products and do not employ the use of cheap tapes and phosphorous liquids.
Stairs are an everyday part of life and something we usually take for granted. That is until there is a slip or fall which can be both dangerous and potentially expensive. This can happen at commercial, industrial, municipal or residential locations. Studies indicate there are up to 1 million or more accidents involving unsafe stairs each year in the United States alone. The National Safety Council also showed that more than 10,000 people die every year due to (directly or complications from) falls involving stairs.
Age plays a significant part as children and seniors are most at risk for these types of accidents. There are steps you can take to minimize your risks of such accidents. Installing treads on stairway surfaces is a great option for preventing danger and injury.

In addition to increased safety, renovation stair treads will significantly improve the appearance of your building, facility or home. Innovations such as our Glowline™ glow-in-the-dark stair treads will help increase the visibility of your stairs even in poorly lit conditions. Amstep also offers a Sightline anti-slip stair tread option which is especially helpful for individuals with vision impairments and/or locations that are dimly lit.
Worn, broken and cracked steps and stair cases are unsightly and reflect on the building and its occupants. Pouring new steps or replacing stairs can be very expensive. Renovating stairs with Amstep Products anti slip stair treads, stair nosing, and non-slip coatings can save a lot of money and time. Amstep Products non slip stair treads provide an attractive appearance and can be made in virtually any size or color. (See the recent installations page for examples)
