Where Are Metal Stair Treads Used?

The next time you walk up or down a set of metal stair treads, whether it be at your office, in a parking garage, at the mall, in a hotel or anywhere really, look down and take a look to see what you’re actually walking on. More than likely, you’re walking on a set of metal stair treads and you didn’t even realize it. You’ve been doing it your entire life without thinking about it…..until now! And now that you’ve come to the realization that these stair treads have been around you your entire life, the next questions are, how did these metal stair treads get there and why are they here?

The Journey of our Metal Stair Treads

Our most recent custom stair treads project is a perfect example to show you just how much goes into making sure the perfect step is installed exactly where it needs to be. We were recently contacted by a customer in Maryland who was looking to purchase around 200 stair treads that are being used for a renovation project in Waikiki, HI. The metal stair treads had to be 48 inches long and fabricated from 12 gauge steel. Nothing our metal fabrication shop couldn’t handle. So with the order in hand, our team of fabricators went to work making sure every design specification, measurement, angle and requirement was met.

First the sheet metal was removed from our material holding bins and staged at our shearing station, where the sheets were checked for correct material thickness and hand counted to verify quantity. Then the shear was programmed to meet the specific dimensions and precisely cut into the correct size panels needed to create the final stair treads. Once cut, the pieces were moved to our press brake machines. There, our press break operators fine tuned the machines so every angle and bend was accurate and up to the customer’s standards. When the bending was done, the stair treads were neatly stacked, securely banded and sent over to our shipping department. With one final wave goodbye, our metal treads were out the door and off to the sunshine and paradise of Hawaii.
