Improve Facility Stair Safety and Reduces Maintenance with Form-A-Tread Original


To prevent slips and falls and improve safety on high traffic stairs, Form-A-Tread, a company with expertise in adhesives, coatings, and their applications, offers a new category of durable high-tech epoxy paste, called Form-A-Tread Original. The product ensures superior stair tread footing and visibility for years without re-application, instead of short-lived, high-maintenance tapes or coatings.

Form-a-Tread’s durable epoxy paste consists of 100% solids that, once applied, can last for years in high traffic areas, including warehouse and storage facilities. The patented product provides an extremely strong bond to a range of stair tread surfaces, with embedded aggregate to increase traction. It can be used indoors/outdoors and exposed to chemicals, direct sunlight, harsh weather, and temperature extremes. 


The high strength epoxy paste is designed to be easy to apply to stair treads by even untrained personnel. Form-A-Tread’s kit includes a 400 ml cartridge of material that can produce 25 to 40 linear feet of one-inch-wide tread depending on the surface type. A special tool is then used to dispense and mix the material at the time of application in the correct ratio – eliminating the risk of human error. 

The kit includes a patent pending stencil system, so the one-inch-wide tread lines remain clean, neat, and parallel. In addition to straight line treads, instructions such as “Exit Here” or a corporate logo can be applied using the material and a stencil.

For added safety, the 100% epoxy tread line does not shrink during cure so provides a superior tactile sensation that creates greater awareness of footing when climbing or descending stairs. 

Form-A-Tread Original can also be used on steps, curbs, and walkways to provide better footing as well as detectable warnings. The product can be applied on sloped and irregular surfaces. It adheres to a wide variety of porous and non-porous surfaces without any priming required.
