Stair Treads Bar Grating


stair treads bar gratingStair tread bar grating is available in carbon steel, aluminum or stainless steel. Stair treads in each of these material types come in both plain and serrated styles. Our serrated stair treads, also known as safety treads, are specifically designed to offer good protection against slips in areas prone to oil or other hazardous elements. Therefore, metal safety treads are perfect for industrial facilities or outdoor sites where slippery conditions may exist from time to time.

The general construction of metal stair treads is the same as other bar grating with additional reinforcement and extra safety adjustments for stair applications. The nosing is a channel or angle of material that is attached to the leading edge of the stair tread providing increased edge visibility and slip resistance. Nosing types can be checker plate, cast abrasive or aluminum grooved.
