Staircases and Stair Treads

UK and Ireland Leading Supplier of Staircases and Stair Treads

Graepels UK and Ireland manufacture perforated steps for metal stairs. The perforations provide added grip resulting in non slip stair treads which are ideal for outdoor stairs or areas where added grip is essential. In addition to perforated steps and stair treads, we manufacture perforated strips which offer an anti-slip edge. These can be added to the stair nosing or as a cover on an existing step.
