Ah, the sights of bare trees and the sound of leaves rustling on the ground. These are the senses many of us pick up on as the weather seasons slowly change from a warm, humid summer to a fresh, cool fall.

This is also the time of year where popular high school, college, and pro sports begin to pick up; this includes cross country, golf, and volleyball. But there’s an even bigger sport worth mentioning: football.

Thousands of fans will flock to their local high school, college campus, or major city to watch their favorite team take the field in hopes of a victory. At times this can be a nightmare for the local police underestimating the crowd capacities, dealing with the heavy beer drinkers, or providing adequate security and accessibility to those simply wanting to enjoy the game.

Organizers may not realize it, but many fans are often injured when trying to navigate themselves to their seats in the bleachers. The weather can also play a large role if windy, rainy conditions are present making it difficult for fans and volunteers alike to perform any tasks.

To prevent this and all but guarantee safety, Handi-Ramp has developed a product that is not only weather resistant to water, ice, sleet, snow, and hail but lasts for years. Named HandiTreads, they are aluminum pieces that feature a unique raised-button surface not found anywhere else. These buttons (or dimples) provide anyone the additional traction needed when stepped on. As an added benefit, the treads are available in 7 different sizes with 5 finishes per size – that’s 35 different options!

Mount the treads to wood, concrete, or aluminum – it doesn’t matter! Treads can be affixed to any surface with the option to later move the tread if necessary.

Searching for quality, low-priced safety products for your stadium’s safety doesn’t have to be hard. Every color and size is available anytime, whenever needed.
