Structural Stair Treads

American Safety Tread structural stair treads and platforms are in use daily throughout the United States. The anti-slip granules embedded in the walking surface create a positive traction system that lasts for the life of the stairway.

Several designs are self-supporting, requiring no risers or bracing. Other designs are installed with carrier angles and risers. The choices are many. When a heavy duty commuter stairway or industrial stairway is the design project, structural castings by American Safety Tread will provide the safety required by OSHA.

LONGEST WEARING: Effective anti-slip protection is guaranteed for the life of the stairway.

IMPACT RESISTANT: The alloys used in the manufacture of these cast structural treads and platforms create highly impact-resistant treads to accommodate heavy interior and exterior use.

ANTI-SLIP SURFACE: Whether wet or dry these treads afford maximum protection against slipping hazards. The proper blend of abrasive granules embedded in the exposed walking surface assures secure traction under foot.

ECONOMICAL: Available in four metals, these cast structural treads and platforms are the most economical on the market. Our advanced manufacturing equipment and special American Safety Tread molding process assure the lowest cost per unit.
