Forgebar Grating Stair Treads

Forgebar Grating Stair Treads

Stair treads can be supplied in Forgebar Series 30, 40 or 60. Overall tread length can be made to any dimension. Please feel free to contact us in regard to recommended widths. Whatever the depth of the main flooring, we recommend that stair treads should never have less than a 25 x 5 Load Bar size. Stair treads wear at a greater rate than the actual flooring and are more inclined to become bowed because of continual and concentrated impact. Nosings help to define the edge of the tread. Without Nosing Bars, the pattern of the grating tends to merge when walking down stairs, which can result in over or under stepping. The Nosing Bar also stiffens the front edge of the tread, helping resist deflection caused by impact loads.
