Improved Stairway Safety: The “Diamond-Plate” stair treads are an easy-to-install and cost-effective way of improving the overall safety quality of your stairways. The risk of losing your footing is always greater on a stairway because these areas involve elevated heights. The fact that most step surfaces are made from traction-less materials like hardwood and stone complicates matters even further. Stair coverings made from rubber will greatly improve the safety of your steps because rubber is a non-slip material. The surface texture on the safety treads for stairs, consisting of raised protrusions, are laid out in a pattern that is designed to increase the levels of grip and traction that are necessary for feet in motion. By having these anti-slip steps in place, you will be taking a proactive measure to reduce the chances of harmful slip-and-fall accidents occurring.
Indoor/Outdoor Stair Treads: These rubber stair coverings are ideal for use in both the indoors and the outdoors. This is possible thanks to the recycled rubber raw material used to make each step mat. Recycled rubber is made primarily from vehicle tires. Tires are designed to be extremely durable against physical abrasions, but also a variety of weather conditions. Vehicle tires have EPDM rubber in their composition that allows them to be used in the outdoors for prolonged periods of time. These safety treads for stairs contain trace amounts of EPDM material from the tires. As a result, the “Diamond-Plate” stair treads can be exposed to outdoor elements involving intense sunlight (UV rays) and rain or snow (moisture).
Temporary or Permanent Installations: Some areas require temporary installations where the step mats can be moved as required by circumstance. At other times, there is a need for permanent stair coverings that stay on the area for good. These indoor/outdoor stair treads are ideal for both. For temporary applications, double-sided tape is sufficient for the task. The tape can adhere the anti-slip steps onto any surface, whether it is wood, tile, stone, or metal. Permanent installations require the use of a polyurethane-based glue. The adhesive glue is meant for use on either wood or metal step surfaces.

Durable enough to withstand physically abrasive objects
Traction-enhancing surface is perfect for keeping your elderly guests safe
Surface texture has an industrial aesthetic ideal for commercial and industrial areas
“Diamond Plate” stair treads are eco-friendly products thanks to their use of recycled rubber
Made with durable natural and recycled rubber materials, these step mats are perfect for adding traction to industrial and commercial stairways. They have a diamondplate surface texture that provides superior grip for feet on stairways. These easy-toinstall mats are perfect for stairways that need better safety.
A- An analysis of workers’ compensation injury claims from acute-care hospitals showed that the lower extremities (knees, ankles, feet) were the body parts most commonly injured and the nature of injury was most often sprains, strains, dislocations and tears. In addition, STFs were significantly more likely to result in fractures and multiple injuries than were other types of injuries.
B- Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries
C- In 2000, 46% of fatal falls were among older adults
D-Proper construction and maintenance of stairs and handrails (described in ANSI 2007, NFPA 2002, and below) can reduce hazards. Stairs that are poorly marked or uneven, as well as handrails that are not of the appropriate size, height, or are poorly maintained, can lead to missteps and can cause employees to trip and fall. Check that stair treads and nosing are slip resistant and extend the whole tread. This is especially important for outside stairs exposed to the elements or stairways exposed to wet conditions.
This is an affordable and ecologically conscious product due to the fact that it is made from both natural and recycled rubber materials.
The surface texture of this mat provides excellent traction. The texture is made up of tiny slightly raised ridges that are aligned to maximize friction against feet. The diamond-patterned texture is ideal for improving traction in industrial pathways and stairs.
The added traction from the diamond-patterned texture can increase safety bykeeping feet planted on the mat. This means that the likelihood of a slip-and-fall accident is decreased. These mats are great for improving the overall safety of a
These rubber stair mats have a design aesthetic that is well suited for use in industrial areas. They also bring a more industrial appeal when placed in commercial areas as well.
To clean these mats, simply use water and common household cleaners. We do not recommend the use of strong and caustic cleaning solutions like bleach.
