At Oak Mountain Glass, people come to us when they want to install glass railing and walls for both safety and aesthetics around their outdoor living areas.

Many times, we’re asked about other ways homeowners can make their deck area safer without sacrificing looks, and that’s what we’re going to cover today in this post.

Join us as we take a look at the best outdoor stair treads for your wooden deck, and remember to stay safe during the critical days of summer.

Deck Stairs Can Be Slick!

How many times have you been walking up the stairs to your home with too many groceries to carry in one trip after a rainstorm? Do you almost trip on slippery stairs after every storm? If you’re like many homeowners, it’s a constant struggle to keep your deck or patio stairs washed so that it’s not a tripping hazard.

The problem is that as the wood slats of your outdoor stairs accumulate algae, they can become slick and dangerous when wet.

That’s where Traxion can help!

Improving Deck Safety with Traxion

Summer is coming and it’s time to make sure your outdoor space is safe. One of the easiest ways to do that is by installing Traxion Step Treads! These outdoor stair treads are designed specifically for wooden decks, stairs, patios and porches. They’re made from a durable molded engineered polypropylene design with open slates and aggressive non-slip texture along with structural ribs and gussets for added strength and durability. The best part? They’re also barefoot friendly so you don’t have to worry about hurting your toes as you walk up or down the stairs!

Traxion Step Treads are a great way to prevent slips and falls, especially if you live in an area that gets plenty of rain. If your deck is already built up with algae or moss, it’ll be difficult for the traction tape on other treads to stick without deeply cleaning the surface with a pressure washer first.

Unlike those products, Traxion is attached with included wood screws so that it will be there for years to come. It’s the best alternative to outdoor carpeting on your stairs and it won’t rot or mildew.

Traxion is a great way to protect your family from slips, falls, and sore feet this summer! And they’re also perfect for anyone with mobility issues who can’t navigate stairs in their current condition easily. They make outdoor living accessible again at an affordable price, so visit Traxion Treads and check out the first all-weather outdoor stair tread that’s barefoot friendly and built to last.
