The Aztec civilization is famous for many things. They have inspired many works of art that pay homage to their culture. The “Azteca” stair treads are just the latest example of the modern world’s appreciation of old Aztec art and architecture. With a design pattern that takes its cue from old Aztec metalwork designs these safety treads for stairs combine aesthetic and function in a way that few other stair mats can. By using these eco-friendly rubber stair coverings, you will be bringing more physical appeal into your home or business, while at the same time enhancing the well being of you and your guests.
Traction Enhancing Rubber: The biggest benefit of having rubber treads on your staircases are that they help to improve safety. The secret behind this lies within the rubber material that is used to make each mat. Rubber is a material that naturally enhances the level of grip and traction enjoyed by the feet on top of it. Rubber stair treads will provide the necessary level of friction, or pushback, that is lacking from surfaces like laminate or tile floors.
Great For Outdoor Use: In addition to enhancing traction, the rubber material of these stair coverings makes them ideal for placement in outdoor settings. The natural and reclaimed rubber in each stair mat is able to endure the rigors of the elements. These rubber treads can be exposed to moisture, such as rainwater, without developing harmful microbial byproducts like mold and mildew. At the same time, it can be left exposed to UV rays for longer periods of time than most other materials.
Protects Surfaces: Rubber is a great material to place over existing sensitive surfaces. Stairways see a regular volume of foot traffic. It is not uncommon for steps to suffer some type of damage over time after hundreds and thousands of pairs of feet have gone up and down them. This damage can be compounded by the fact that the steps could be made of materials like wood. Stair treads made of rubber are ideal for protecting these types of step surfaces. While these safety treads for stairs keep you and your guests safe, they also keep the stairs themselves safe by absorbing any physical impact that comes from foot traffic. The rubber treads will help to either reduce or outright negate any future costly repair costs.
This Step Mat has a geometric design and is made to mimic old Mesoamerican art. It is designed to protect modern stairs and make them slip-resistant to foot-traffic. Why make your steps slip resistant? Globally, falls represent the third leading cause of disability after depression and anemia. Falls are also the second leading global cause of accidental death, after motor vehicle collisions. Stairs are a special worry since a fall may result in even more severe injury due to the geometric nature of stairs. Rubber is unaffected by moisture, has excellent weather resistant and offers great friction in all conditions. This makes rubber an ideal raw material for step mats.

Common threads run through the history of Mesoamerican art. The Olmec, Maya, Toltec, and Zapotec civilizations, amongst others, perpetuated an artistic tradition which displayed a love of monumental stone sculpture, imposing architecture, highly decorated metallurgy, and geometric stamps for fabric and body art. Metalwork was a particular skill of the Aztecs. The great Renaissance artist Albrecht Drurer saw some of the artifacts brought back to Europe which caused him to say, '... have never seen in all my days that which so rejoiced my heart, as these things. For i saw among them amazing artistic objects, and I marveled over the subtle ingenuity of the en in these distant lands'.
