Ah, summer – the season of sunshine, backyard barbecues, and lazy afternoons spent lounging on the deck. But while you’re soaking up the sun, it’s essential to ensure that your outdoor spaces are safe for you, your family, and your guests.

Slippery decks, ramps, and steps can quickly turn summer fun into a trip to the emergency room.

That’s where HandiTreads come in. Let’s dive into how you can keep your outdoor spaces safe this summer with HandiTreads.

Understanding Summer Slip Hazards

Summer brings with it a host of slip hazards that can turn your outdoor oasis into a danger zone. From morning dew to afternoon rain showers, moisture can quickly accumulate on surfaces, making them slippery and treacherous. Add in splashes from the pool, mold, mildew, algae, and debris, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.

But fear not – HandiTreads are here to save the day. With their durable aluminum construction and patented raised-button traction surface, HandiTreads provide exceptional traction in virtually any weather condition. So whether it’s rain, sleet, or even hail, you can rest easy knowing that your outdoor spaces are safe and slip-free.

Summer Safety Solutions: HandiTreads in Action

Slip-Free Pool Decks

A pool deck is the epitome of summer fun, but it can also be a slippery hazard, especially when wet. With HandiTreads, you can transform your pool deck into a safe space for splashing and lounging.

Whether you have wooden stairs leading up to your deck or a pressure-treated wood ramp for accessibility, stairs and ramps are high-traffic areas that require extra attention when it comes to safety. HandiTreads’ aluminum non-slip stair treads and ramp treads are designed to provide reliable traction in even the most challenging conditions, ensuring that you and your loved ones can navigate your outdoor spaces with confidence.

Why Choose HandiTreads Over Competitor Products this Summer?

As you explore non-slip solutions for your outdoor spaces this summer, you may come across a variety of competitor products vying for your attention. But why should you choose HandiTreads over these alternatives? Let’s take a closer look at some key factors that set HandiTreads apart from the competition.

Durability in the Summer Heat: Aluminum vs. Plastic

Plastic stair treads are less durable than metal

While competitor products like GripStrips may claim to offer durability and resistance to weather, the materials they’re made of can’t hold a candle to the strength of aluminum. HandiTreads’ aluminum construction ensures that they can withstand the summer heat without warping, cracking, or deteriorating. Whether it’s scorching sun or heavy foot traffic, HandiTreads are built to last, providing reliable traction year after year.

Resistance to Wear and Tear

ComposiGrip’s Non Slip Stair Treads may boast durability, but they can’t match HandiTreads’ resistance to wear and tear. With their aforementioned raised-button traction surface, HandiTreads provide exceptional traction even in high-traffic areas, preventing slips and falls without sacrificing durability. Plus, HandiTreads are backed by a lifetime residential warranty, giving you peace of mind that your investment is protected for years to come.

Pet-Friendly Design: Comfort for Furry Friends


One area where competitor products fall short is pet-friendliness. Unlike GripStrips, whose pointy spikes are definitely too aggressive for bare feet, HandiTreads are designed with comfort in mind – for both humans and pets. The traction dimples are rounded making a safe but, comfortable surface that is gentle on bare feet and pet paws. HandiTreads are the perfect choice for families with furry companions. With HandiTreads, you can enjoy summer fun without worrying about your pets’ safety.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

When it comes to installation, HandiTreads have the competition beat. While competitor products may require complex installation processes involving construction adhesive and fasteners, HandiTreads can be easily installed in minutes with the included color-matched screws. Whether you’re a DIY enthusiast or a novice homeowner, you’ll appreciate the simplicity and ease of installing HandiTreads.
