STOP THE Slip
STOP THE SLIP ON SNOW AND ICE
Handi-Treads Are Easy to Install in Winter!
Handi-Treads can be screwed down on wet steps, ramps or porches while the temperature is below freezing! Compare this to inferior solutions like grit tape, grit paint and rubber mats that require dry surfaces and warm temperatures for the adhesive to work.
Handi-Treads patented raised traction buttons shed water and push away snow and ice with each step. Snow can be shoveled from the aluminum treads – something that will rip grit tape and rubber mats to shreds!

Find the Right Solution to Your Trip, Slip or Fall Hazard
WHAT WOULD A FALL MEAN FOR YOU OR A LOVED ONE?
According the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), slip and fall injuries are the number one cause of emergency room visits each year. Thom Disch, the CEO of Handi-Ramps, parent company of Handi-Treads, had personal experience with the devastation that slips and falls bring and determined that he would find a solution.
After years of research and education, Thom became an expert in the field of slip, trip and fall mitigation both at home and in the workplace, writing a very successful book on the topic that’s been quoted by many sources.
Thom built Handi-Treads as a single source of information and solutions for those looking to prevent the pain, lengthy recovery and liability that come along with slips and falls in both commercial and residential environments.

Grit Tape FAILS
In Outdoor, Winter Applications
In the right environment – indoors – grit tape is an excellent solution to increase traction. However, when you use grit tape outdoors, it’s not effective in icy or snowy weather, and it is most definitely not going to last more than a season or two.
While the initial investment for Handi-Treads aluminum treads is a bit more than grit treads or tape, the return on investment is superior. Learn more about Handi-Treads here.
HANDI-TREADS ARE ALASKA TOUGH!
I shovel the steps for an older woman who owns the “Mother-in-Laws” apartment attached to our home.
For years she has had the self adhesive strips on her stairs. At the end of winter there are only a few left because the rest get shoveled along with the snow.
I saw these Handi-Treads on-line and thought that they were the long term solution to good traction. Putting them up (30 of them) was easy. Really impressed with the quality of the tread and the hardware to attach. She said it was the best Christmas present!
