Spiral Stair Treads CASE STUDY: Custom Treads for Mt. Morris Dam

Jun 29 2020

Custom Diamond Plate Stair Treads Made To Order

Diamond Plate Stair Treads are commonly used to build stairs that do not require a concrete fill but need an anti-slip surface for safe foot traffic. Our Metal Fabrication Services division manufactures diamond plate stair treads from high quality diamond plate steel, also known as checker plate steel, and offers a variety of configurations and lengths to fit your project needs. Standard stair treads are usually rectangular in shape, however, with our laser table and CNC machines, we’re able to cut and bend custom shapes and sizes to meet the needs of unique projects. See below how we were able to fulfill an order for custom spiral stair treads.

Spiral Stair Treads Installed at Mt. Morris Dam

Our team of project engineers was recently tasked with designing custom diamond plate stair treads for a spiral stair case replacement project. This unique design was something completely new to our Metal Fabrication division. After putting in 38 man hours, our team was able to utilize our laser table and CNC machines to cut and form custom stair treads to meet the customer’s needs. 3/16″ diamond plate was used for this project.
