Hi-Traction® and HiGlo-Traction® Step Covers are designed to wrap over the leading edge with a standard 1in vertical lip (C), thereby covering the radius where most slips occur.

It is not necessary to cover the entire step. When measuring the length of your step (A), leave some empty space on either side of the step cover to allow for seasonal expansion and contraction and for any irregularities that may exist from step to step.

Cover Steps to the Proper Depth

The depth of the Step Cover for your stairway depends on your foot traffic:

  • What type of footwear is worn in the area?
  • What substrate do you intend to cover?
  • What is the condition of the existing stairs?
  • How many steps are in the stairwell?
