Step Covers

Step Covers over concrete

Most slips on steps occur at the leading edge of a step, especially when the metal, wood or concrete surface becomes worn and the edge rounded. Water, ice, dust, dirt, grease or oil on the stairs further accentuates the problem, making for a dangerous condition.

Non-load bearing SAFEGUARD® Step Covers are designed to fit over existing steps, providing a brand new surface with durable antislip performance. They cover the leading edge, providing excellent traction that exceeds OSHA standards, even in adverse conditions. Convert your steps to safety treads.

SAFEGUARD® Step Covers are installed on steps around the world in a wide range of markets, in both new construction projects and in retrofit applications. Retrofitting SAFEGUARD® Step Covers both provides a non slip stair and avoids the high cost of replacing worn stair treads.

Safeguard offers its Hi-Traction Covers in a range of sizes, base constructions, colors and grits, with complete installation instructions provided.

Two-Tone Colors Add Visibility.
For added safety, our two-tone step covers call attention to the edge of the step. A contrast between the step edge and the back of the tread below provides good definition and clear visibility.
