Handi-Treads are manufactured with the environment in mind

The original idea for Handi-Treads came from creating an alternative use for drop off from our ramp manufacturing process. The goal was to reduce the amount of recycled scrap and turn this into a useful product. While we continue to make use of 100% of the drop off from our ramp business, today Handi-Treads have become too popular to be produced exclusively from this source and are also manufactured from aluminum plate. Handi-Treads are still very environmentally friendly.

Here is how Handi-Treads fit with the three Rs of an environmentally friendly product.

Reduce
Handi-Treads are an environmentally friendly alternative to both non slip tape and non skid paint. Handi-Treads are guaranteed to last the life time of the home owner. Non slip tape most be replaced between six months and a year. Non skid paint needs to be re-applied every one to two years. Site preparation for both tape and paint requires chemical cleaners and solvents. Old tape and paint must be scraped off and put into a land fill. With a useful life of 20 years for Handi-Treads you can see how much more friendly Handi-Treads are for the environment.

Reuse
Handi-Treads are formed from a 0.1 inch plate and are mounted using screws. We expect them to last for many years. Handi-Treads are easily reused and will sometimes last longer than surface on which they are mounted.

Recycle
Handi-Treads are manufactured out of 100% aluminum and as we all know aluminum is one of the easiest and most economically lucrative products to recycle. In the unlikely event that you no longer needed your Handi-Treads this product is completely recyclable.
