Safety Solution – DURATREAD™

Even those that know what fiberglass reinforced polymer (FRP) is have stereotypes of the material. Products such as molded and pultruded grating, or the Redco™ EXTREN® line of structural shapes is what comes to mind.

How about stair treads?

Redco™ Duratread™ is a molded FRP safety solution designed to keep stairways safe. The treads are designed to be installed over traditional stair materials such as concrete, metal and wood in environments where they would be in contact with slippery substances.  Duratread™ is available in thicknesses of 1/8″ and 1/4″. Standard depths are 8″, 9″, 10″, 11″ and 12″. All stair tread covers are available in 12′ lengths. Other lengths and depths are available upon request.

The coverings are then coated with an aluminum oxide grit. It is important to note the coverings are ADA compliant, durable and virtually maintenance-free. When you factor in the possibility of injured employees and the requisite consequences due to something as simple (and preventable) as a slippery step – the  Redco™ Duratread™ just makes sense as a cost-effective preventative safety measure.

Duratread™ is recommended for:

•    Amusement/Water Parks
•    Hotels/Motels
•    Outdoor Stairways
•    Outdoor Sports Facilities
•    Restaurants
•    Food Processing Facilities
