Types of Steel Stair Treads – What to Know Before Choosing

When it comes to ensuring safety and enhancing the aesthetic appeal of staircases, choosing the right type of stair tread is crucial. Elemy, renowned for its expertise in providing quality building solutions, offers a variety of stair treads, including the increasingly popular steel stair treads.

Steel Stair Treads

Steel stair treads are a popular choice due to their durability and strength. They are particularly suited for industrial and commercial environments where heavy foot traffic is common. Elemy’s steel stair treads are designed to withstand significant wear and tear, offering long-term value and safety. The inclusion of anti-slip surfaces also makes them a safe option in areas prone to moisture or spills. We can offer different thickness, pitch, nosing type and customisable end plates.

GRP Stair Treads

Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) stair treads are another excellent option. Known for their corrosion resistance and lightweight properties, GRP treads are ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. They are up to 50% lighter than steel, making them easier to install and maintain. Additionally, GRP treads come with a gritted surface that enhances slip resistance, making them a safe choice for environments with high slip risks​​.

Factors to Consider

When selecting stair treads, consider the following factors:

  • Durability: Choose a material that can withstand the environmental conditions and traffic of the area.
  • Safety: Features such as anti-slip surfaces are crucial for preventing accidents.
  • Aesthetics: Consider how the treads will complement the existing architectural style.
  • Maintenance: Opt for treads that require minimal upkeep to retain their appearance and functionality over time.
  • Compliance: Ensure that the stair treads meet all relevant safety and building regulations​​.

Elemy offers a diverse range of stair treads to meet various needs and preferences. Whether you are looking for the industrial strength of steel, the lightweight durability of GRP or the versatility of aluminium, Elemy has the expertise to guide you through your selection process.
