And for flat sheet flooring, Traction Tread can be an ideal choice for industrial and commercial applications.

The aggressive non-slip surface of the grating provides excellent traction, even in wet or oily conditions, which is essential for safety when climbing ladders. The rungs are available in several different sizes and shapes to fit different ladder configurations and are fabricated from the same high-quality materials as the plank safety grating.

Stair Tread:

While Traction Tread is a highly versatile product, it may not always meet the exact requirements of your specific application. That's where customized production comes in. With Traction Tread, you can choose the dimensions, surface treatment, material, and other features that will make it the perfect fit for your project.

Customized Traction Tread Manufacture

Customers can specify the width and length of the Traction Tread planks, as well as the spacing of the raised buttons. Surface treatments including hot-dip galvanizing, powder coating, and paint, provide the level of corrosion resistance and the aesthetic appearance you need. And with a range of materials to choose from, including steel, stainless steel, and aluminum, you can select the combination of durability and traction that best suits your application.

Traction Tread Material Selection:

Traction Tread safety grating can be made of different metals, such as steel is a popular choice for its strength and affordability, stainless steel offers excellent corrosion resistance and hygiene. Aluminum is a lightweight and corrosion-resistant option and can be an excellent choice for applications where weight is a concern.

Anti-slip and strength levels of traction tread are realized with a unique combination of perforated metal and raised buttons. The perforation pattern holes allow for drainage and airflow, while the raised buttons provide a textured surface that offers exceptional slip resistance.

Compare Grip Strut and Traction Tread

Surface Design:

Traction tread has a serrated surface with raised perforated buttons, while the grip strut has a diamond-shaped raised surface with small perforations. The grip strut design offers more aggressive slip resistance and is better suited for outdoor environments or areas with heavy debris, while traction tread is more suited for indoor applications.


Grip strut is typically made from thicker materials, such as galvanized steel or stainless steel, and is more suitable for heavy-duty applications. Traction tread, on the other hand, is mostly made from thinner materials, such as aluminum or carbon steel, and is more suitable for lighter-duty applications.

Weight Capacity:

Due to its thicker materials and more aggressive surface design, grip strut can typically support heavier loads than traction tread. However, traction tread is still a strong and durable flooring option that can support a significant amount of weight.


Grip strut is a proprietary product, meaning that it is only produced by a few manufacturers. Traction tread, on the other hand, is a more widely available product that can be purchased from a variety of suppliers.

Traction Tread Advantages

  • Slip resistance: It has a unique surface design to create excellent slip resistance, even in wet or oily conditions.
  • Durability: High-quality materials, such as galvanized steel or aluminum, that are designed to withstand heavy foot traffic, machinery, and other wear and tear.
  • Easy maintenance: The raised surface design makes it easy to remove dirt, debris, and liquids.
  • Versatility: It is used in a variety of applications, from stair treads to walkways, ramps, and platforms.
  • Cost-effective: Compared to other slip-resistant flooring options, such as rubber or vinyl, traction tread is a relatively affordable option.
