GridEX® Stair Treads

GridEX® Stair Treads are normally implemented in applications where there are greater load bearing and strength capacities required that other grating variations cannot offer. The GridEX® Treads are available in all bar types and dimensional variations. All GridEX® Premium and Standard Stair Tread options are moulded with a solid leading edge nosing as an integrated single stage operation. This increases the rigidity and durability of the entire leading edge, ensuring reliable performance in high traffic scenarios. All the treads with abrasive leading edge nosings are manufactured to conform with AS 1657 – 2018. The GridEX® Stair Tread nosings (premium treads only) are typically stocked in colours that contrast by 30% with the primary tread colour. This ensures maximum visual awareness of the stair treads forward edge for operators utilising the stairways and consequently enhancing the OHS safety ratings. Treadwell recommends that leading edge nosings are specified when ordering GridEX® Stair Treads as the safety risks associated with elevated work areas or walkways is significantly increased without them.

NOTE: A bearing surface of at least 40mm is recommended at either side of GridEX® Stair Treads. Compliance with AS 1657 – 2018 requires a tread depth of less than 225mm. Selecting a tread with lasting non-slip properties, resilience to corrosion and proven long term cost advantages can help you enhance safety in the workplace by reducing the chance of slips, trips and falls.
