Along with normal duties, all of our grating products can easily double function as a safety stair tread. No other area in the workplace is more vulnerable to slip and fall accidents like stairways. Keeping stairs free of debris and slippery substances is especially important in an industrial setting where losing ones footing can result in injury. Stair treads increase gripping power significantly while letting the shoe easily leave the surface when climbing or descending. One common trait in inferior stair treads is over gripping the shoe. Slip and fall accidents occurring on inferior grating are usually due to the individual not being able to release the shoe cleanly while taking a step. Our unique design of the non slip stair treads allows the individual to effortlessly pick up their shoe after initial gripping has occurred thus allowing stability throughout the entire step.
Our stair tread products are fabricated from bar grating, Grip Strut, Perfo Grip and Traction Tread. Pre-punched holes in the welded end plates allow our stair treads to be easily bolted to the stair stringers. Peterson Company carries a variety of stair tread designs options most of which are available with several stair nosing options. We keep in stock the checkered plate stair nosing, cast abrasive stair nosing and corrugated stair nosing (Aluminum Stair Treads Only) Please call to discuss style that best suits your needs.
Standard Widths of Bar Grating Stair Treads:

· 6–3/16 inches
· 7–3/8 inches
· 8–9/16 inches
· 9–3/4 inches
· 10–15/16 inches

The maximum length is determined by the width, bearing bar thickness, and surface of stair tread. For example, a stair tread with a bearing bar height of 1 inch cannot be any longer than 36 inches with a plain surface. If it has a serrated surface, the maximum length would be 30 inches.
