Continuing to improve our stair tread design

Although they look similar to our previous step tread, a number of important design changes have been made:

  • Width of tread has increased from 252mm to 262mm to allow for a 10mm overlap of treads in accordance with AS 1657-1992 item 4.3.1 (e).
  • Tread nosing is now a separate section which slides into (and has concealed rivets firmly fixing it to) the main body of the tread ensuring it will not come loose in high traffic areas.

  • Is now patterned with slip resistant knurling which greatly reduces the risk of slipping along the length. This is especially beneficial on longer treads on decks and demountable buildings (available in two different designs).
  • In the event of the coloured nosing section wearing due to high traffic volume, it can easily be replaced or recoated without the expense or hassle of replacing or re-coating the entire tread.
  • A provision has been made to fit a solid, aluminium riser plate to block the gap between the treads. This gives the stair treads a clean, neat appearance whilst offering modesty benefits in public access situations (complies with the AS 1428 for the visually impaired to block glare from behind stair case on approach and enable a clearly defined edge of the stairs).
