About Automotive and Tire Applications

Auto and the Alternating Tread Stair

When assessing opportunities for efficiencies and hazards, there are critical factors you should take into account before setting on a manufacturer. Alternating tread stairs help save 60% more space and eliminate the hazards of climbing ladders. 50% of ladder injuries are a result of climbing while carrying items up and down. Users can safely climb alternating tread stairs with tools or small objects while maintaining 3-point contact.

Space saving

Alternating tread stairs save space for your layout, enabling plant workers to safely carry tools while climbing which improves efficiency. 

Eliminating fatigue, injuries

Fixed and temporary ladders are a primary source of fatigue and muscle injury for workers. Alternating tread stairs reduce worker recovery time by up to 54% compared to ships ladders and take 8% less energy to use
