Amstep Products marine stair treads and stair nosings protect crew and passengers against slips and falls under wet slippery conditions common in marine environments. As of 2014, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) statistics show over 40% of workplace accidents in the Marine industry are a result of a slip or fall.
Amstep’s treads and nosings are currently in use on freighters, ferries, tugboats, commercial and personal fishing vessels, as well as yachts and cruise ships. They are protecting the safety of boat passengers and crews from Maine to Alaska and Florida to Hawaii.

Amstep 300 Series stair nosings go over existing stairs and provide 3 to 5 inches of durable non slip surface which is just the right amount on shallow steps found in Marine applications. They can go over wood, metal and masonry stairs. They can be installed over existing embedded nosings or provide a new non slip front edge to a worn or slippery step. They come in many colors and provide a visual contrast to the front edge of your steps. They are available with Sightline and Glowline options for increased visibility even in the dark.
While anti-slip and non-skid precautions are extremely important for staircases, most boats also have large deck areas that need to be made safer given the wet marine environment. Covering decks with marine treads would be cost prohibitive.
Amstep Products has a line of non slip coatings that are currently in use on docks, ferries, boats and cruise ships. For decks and walkways of working vessels, as well as for harbor and dock surfaces, Amstep Products offers a number of anti-slip deck coatings with varied profiles.
AP 250 is a high solids, low volatile organic compound (VOC) anti-slip deck epoxy coating.
