Making Outdoor Stairways Safe with Aluminum Stair Treads

2 Mar

Stairway-related slips and falls are among the most common and severely debilitating accidents. When a slip or trip occurs on a stairway, the individual “falls further” than if the accident were to occur on flat ground. The extra distance leads to an increase in velocity, ultimately imposing greater force on the body. For this reason, stairway accidents are a top priority when it comes to risk management for business. Specifically, business owners and property managers must proactively inspect stairways for both structural integrity and slip resistance. Should the stairs be in disrepair, treads are to be used to make them safer. For stairways and landing areas that are located outdoors, a special type of product is needed to ensure long-term functionality and effectiveness. Aluminum stair treads are recommended for such applications, as they are built to withstand fluctuations in weather, temperature, and traffic. http://www.eaglemat.com/blog/making-outdoor-stairways-safe-with-aluminum-stair-treads/
