The Safety Benefits of Stair Treads

The Safety Benefits of Stair Treads

Many people go up and down stairs in buildings and outdoor areas without a moment’s thought about their construction or design. But did you know that stairs are actually designed with safety in mind? The treads of stairs, or the part that you step on, are often designed with certain textures and materials that make them slip resistant and able to withstand long-term wear and tear. Since staircases are among the highest traffic areas in most buildings, ensuring that stairs are durable enough to endure significant scuffing, scratching, and staining can be crucial.

Like with many things, however, stair treads do not last forever. Over time, treads can become worn from continuous abuse and exposure to the elements, causing them to take on a slick surface and accumulate considerable amounts of dirt, debris, and moisture. Considering how slips and falls are common even on staircases that are kept meticulously clean, damaged and worn stair treads can exacerbate this danger and potentially expose property owners to certain liability issues.

Fortunately, aging staircases can be made safe and beautiful again through a simple tread replacement. Depending on your staircase’s construction and desired aesthetic, hardwood, concrete, pavers, or stones may be used to refresh your staircase and minimize the risk of an unwanted slip and fall. In many cases, tread replacements are simple and can be completed in as little as two days.
