New Stair Saver from Wooster Products Rejuvenates Non-Slip Stair Treads

Jan. 17, 2024
This kit is designed to restore any brand of nosing or tread where the abrasive fill is missing.

Wooster Products introduces the Stair Saver Epoxy Kit, which rejuvenates non-slip stair nosings and treads, restoring them to like-new condition, in booth N519. This kit is designed to restore any brand of nosing or tread where the abrasive fill is missing. Treads repaired with Stair Saver meet or exceed all codes and standards for coefficient of friction. It is far more economical than replacing the empty nosing shells, which are a trip hazard caused by the missing abrasives.

The Stair Saver Epoxy Kit is designed for interior or exterior usage on any brand of nosing or tread and can be applied in less than two hours. Repaired treads are ready for foot traffic in just 24 hours. 

Each Stair Saver Epoxy Kit contains all the materials needed to repair a 40-foot section of a typical three-inch nosing, including black abrasive non-slip media, a two-part epoxy, a four-gallon mixing bucket, stir sticks, towels, a rib cleaning tool to improve the aesthetic of the filled tread, and a drill bit for mixing the kit.

“Across the country there are stairs that no longer provide non-slip protection because the abrasive is missing. Stair Saver economically addresses the need to repair those empty nosing and treads,” said Wooster Products research & development manager Matt Gray, PhD. “Now users can transform the empty nosings from trip hazards to true non-slip surfaces, as the newly repaired treads meet or exceed all codes and standards for coefficient of friction. No special tools or skills are required. Stair Saver repairs empty nosings and treads no matter who made the product initially.”
