Amstep 500 Series Renovation Stair Treads are an affordable way to renovate and modernize worn stairways without the cost of tearing out and rebuilding or disrupting stair traffic. Amstep renovation treads provide long-lasting, anti-slip protection and a beautiful appearance. The easy to install renovation treads are engineered and built to outlast ordinary treads by many years.

Amstep 500 Series Renovation Stair Treads are manufactured of high quality, heavy duty extruded aluminum configured to house our exclusive safety traction surface of special abrasive non-slip particles. These particles are bonded and locked into the aluminum base to make Amstep 500 series more durable than concrete, stone or marble.

Amstep 500 Series Renovation Stair Treads are easily installed over existing worn stairways of every type, including marble, concrete, wood, steel and terrazzo. They are ideally suited for both indoor and outdoor use in schools, public buildings, hospitals and industry.

Choice of colors

The abrasive material bonded to the heavy-duty aluminum base of the 500 Series is offered in your choice of eight attractive colors. These colors can blend with any decor, for improved esthetics. The color pigment is incorporated into the abrasive material itself, so the color will never fade or peel.
