Aeratis 12-½” Wide Stair Tread Now Available
The First of its kind… 12-½ wide PVC Stair-Tread
Aeratis has engineered the first of it’s kind 12-½” Stair-Tread for exterior use. The stair-tread product comes in 16′ lengths. It also comes in 3 colors as well as an Aeratis Traditions option (paint or stain ready). The 3 colors are Weathered Wood, Battleship Gray and Vintage Slate. All pre-colored products are engineered with the Aeratis DuraTech capping technology. Notice the Aeratis Stair-Tread is double sided. Either side can be used as a tread surface. The Aeratis Stair-Tread can be ripped on a table saw for exact fits on stairs that call for less than a 12-½” board as a tread. The beauty of this product is that it will reduce the maintenance of your stair and stop pointy heels from getting stuck between boards. All too often multiple boards will collect dirt, dust, leaves and debris in the gaps creating slip hazards or higher maintenance areas. With a single board in place large enough to provide an over-hang, you can now have the aesthetic appearance of interior stairs, outside.
The Aeratis Stair-Tread product can be cut using 40,60 or 80 tooth saw blade. Ensure the blade is new and sharp. Dull blades can create an unsightly edge. Use 3 screws per stringer per tread. Holes can be filled with plugs or color match screws can be used to fasten the boards to the stringers. Stringers can be spaced at 16″ OC (bracing between stringers is recommended). Please see Aeratis Stair-Tread installation Guide for complete installation instructions.
The Traditions Stair-Tread is a paint / stain ready product. This product does not have the DuraTech Capping Technology on the surface. This product is intended to be painted or stained to match any color. If you did not install an Aeratis product on your exterior living space, you can stain the Traditions Stair-Tread to match any color of wood product or synthetic manufactures product. You can eliminate multiple boards on as a tread surface.
