Anti-Slip Surface to Interior or Exterior Stairs

July 18, 2022

Wooster Products’ FLEXMASTER® Safety Renovation Treads offer an easily applied anti-slip surface to interior or exterior stairs. An extruded aluminum base is covered with Flex-Tred® anti-slip tape which provides a much higher coefficient of friction, whether wet or dry, significantly reducing the risk of slips or falls. They are available in lengths to 12-feet and with a variety of tread depths. Various colors, including fluorescent colors and NITEGLOW® Glow in the Dark are available; all colors extend uniformly throughout the abrasive surface. The abrasive FLEX-TRED® tape is chemically bonded onto the extrusion with an adhesive matrix capable of a 7.3 pounds per square in peel strength. Abrasive surfaces are level with extrusion surfaces for enhanced safety and comfort. FLEXMASTER® provides a quick, easy, and inexpensive opportunity to enhance the safety of stairways, making them ideal for renovations, retrofits, safety upgrades, and more.
