Stair Safety Before the Fall

Single run. Switchbacks. L-shaped. Spiral. Curved. Triangular. Double helix. Slow stairs. Fast stairs. There are so many ways to describe the beauty and form of stairs. They’re architectural wonders celebrated in many public and private buildings.

Stairs are also one of the biggest safety hazards in commercial buildings like municipal offices and university buildings and even public transportation.

In fact, 1M+ Americans injure themselves on stairs each year – this number is growing and doesn’t discriminate by age. This is more than injuries from car accidents. Safety awareness and education is important – yet not enough.

One root cause.
Many stairs don’t meet basic compliance for slip resistance.

There’s acronym soup for the number of organizations with standards for safe walking surfaces including the International Code Council (ICC), ANSI, ADA, IBC and more.

Don’t fret, we have a solution.
