Make Your Trex or Pressure Treated Wood Decking Slip Free
Just because winter is gone doesn’t mean your deck or patio isn’t a slip-and-fall hazard. The rain, moisture, and mildew brought by Spring and Summer can cause both pressure-treated and composite wood decking, like Trex, to become extremely slippery when wet.
Equipped with the same patented traction surface as our stair treads, the new outdoor Non-Slip Aluminum Deck Treads have you covered. Available in four refined earth-toned shades, you’ll find the perfect hue to complement any color deck. Similarly, Non-Slip Aluminum Deck Strips provide three-season protection to prevent slips and falls in a part or the entirety of your deck.
HANDITREADS FEATURED PRODUCTS
HandiTreads Install in Just Minutes!
HandiTreads can be installed in any weather and do not require extensive prep before application unlike grit tape or paint that require dry surfaces and warm temperatures for the adhesives to work. HandiTreads are ideal for year-round installation and use.
The patented raised-button traction surface of HandiTreads sheds water with each step and inhibits the growth of algae, moss, and mold. You can also use a snow shovel with or power-wash the aluminum non-slip treads – something that will rip grit tape to shreds!
Grit Tape FAILS
In Outdoor Applications
In the right environment – indoors – grit tape can be an excellent solution to increase traction. However, when used outdoors, grit tape is not effective in wet weather and will rarely last more than one season.
While the initial investment in HandiTreads may cost more than grit treads or tape, the return on your investment is superior. HandiTreads are guaranteed to last for life – something other anti-slip solutions like grit tape or rubber treads just can’t live up to.
Safe Aging in Place for the Outside of Your Home

Besides decks, outdoor ramps can also become dangerously slippery when wet, especially if the ramp was placed for a loved one using a wheelchair, scooter, or other mobility devices.

The treads are low-profile so that wheelchairs or equipment wheels can smoothly pass over them while still providing unbeatable traction.
