Non-Slip Stair Treads For Outdoor Use

As spring arrives, open windows welcome crisp air, and cushions are returned to patio sets across the country. The season of outdoor entertainment is upon us! 

Unfortunately, slip and fall hazards don’t disappear with warm weather. Since your deck or porch is exposed to Mother Nature, elements like rain, dew, leaves, or mildew can make outdoor stairs incredibly slippery. Protect your family from dangerous slips and falls this spring with HandiTreads aluminum non-slip solutions. 

HandiTreads Aluminum Non-Slip Stair Treads are a permanent solution to slippery outdoor steps leading up to a porch or deck. The stair treads provide unbeatable slip, trip, and fall protection in virtually any environmental condition including rain, sleet, snow, and mildew. The patented raised-button surface of the treads creates superior traction by dispelling up to an inch of water, snow, or debris when stepped on. 

Made in the USA from rust-proof aluminum, HandiTreads stair treads are guaranteed to provide a lifetime of maintenance-free safety on natural wood, pressure-treated wood, Trex decking, concrete, or brick stairs.

Non-Slip Stair Treads For Outdoor Steps

Make Your Trex or Pressure Treated Wood Decking Slip Free

Deck Treads Come in 4 Designer Colors

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 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 Doesn't Last

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.
