Traction Tread™ Safety Grating


Traction Tread™ steel flooring, planks, ladder rungs and stair treads. This metal grating features a surface with hundreds of perforated buttons that provide slip resistance in all directions, making it a practical choice for industrial applications. Traction Tread™ metal grating is also appropriate for commercial space where pedestrian traffic is a consideration. This floor grating is perfectly suited for ADA compliant requirements.

Traction Tread™ metal grating comes in a variety of materials and sizes and is easily adapted for a multitude of applications, offering a safe walking-working surface for walkways, ramps, stair treads and equipment platforms. This safety metal grating is ideal for special and fabricated products, and is often used as a reconditioning material over existing surfaces that do not provide slip resistance.

Traction Tread™ steel flooring is readily available in stock sheets or planks designed for secondary steel fabrication requirements.

No matter what your metal grating application is, we have the perfect solution.
