CAST STAIR NOSINGS
ABRASIVE CAST METAL
* LONGEST WEARING
* IMPACT RESISTANT
* ANTI-SLIP SURFACE
American Safety Tread cast metal stair nosings have been
installed in thousands of projects throughout the United
States. Virgin grain granules cast into the walking surface
while the metal is in a molten state create ab anti-slip
tread that lasts the life of the stairway.
LONGEST WEARING: Stair nosings shown here ensure
anti-slip protection for pedestrians. They also prevent
wear and deterioration at the front edge of each step,
greatly extending the life of the stairway.
IMPACT RESISTANT: Cast nosings are manufactured
with alloys that create highly impact-resistant treads to
withstand heavy traffic on interior and exterior stairways.
BARRIER FREE: These stair nosings are in full
compliance with the Barrier-Free Code for all stairways.
They offer a solid anti-slip surface and a gently radiused
front edge with no projection beyond the riser.
ANTI-SLIP SURFACE: Maximum protection against slip-
ping accidents is established through the proper blend of
abrasive granules permanently embedded in the exposed
walking surface. The process provides traction underfoot
even when wet and oily.
ECONOMICAL: Our advanced manufacturing equipment
and special American Safety Tread molding process
assure the lowest cost per unit.
