Rubber Leaf Stair Tread-Set of 4 4.5 5 73 73
Jazzing Up Boring Cement Steps These stair treads brighten up the entrance to our house. They add atmosphere with flower pots and make the former boring cement steps attractive. April 10, 2014
Love These Stair Treads! We bought a place a couple of months ago and knew we needed to have some non stick stair treads for front and back stairs. The stairs were well worn and very slippery in the rain and it rains a LOT here in the Northwest. I put it off until one night when I was running out to the mailbox in a pretty heavy downpour. I slipped and fell down about 4 stairs and ended up on my butt, bent my knee at an impossible angle and sprained my toe and ankle. Good time to buy stair treads! I found Improvements online and was very impressed with the photos of these Leaf design Stair Treads, also the reviews were excellent and the price very good. Now that we've received them and put them on the stairs I feel much more secure going up and down. Everything about them is great; the weight, the design, the texture and the safety aspect. Thanks for such a quality beautiful product! I'll be buying some mats next. April 7, 2014
Nice treads These stair treads are very nice. Good quality for the money. April 1, 2014
ok, not great despite the supplier's recommendation that I not get these to cover my outdoor metal staircase treads, I did. I am not dissatisfied with them. They are not perfect with the number and size of cutouts. They tend to feel slippery, especially when there is snow on them and they emit a very strong smell of rubber tires which is what I suspect they are recycled from, especially when heated by the sun. Nevertheless, the holes allowed me to use cable ties to secure them to the treads and they do allow the dogs I foster to climb the stairs more comfortably, even if they are not perfect.

does this have a sticky back to it?

I have rubber stair treads that I put on several years ago and these had a sticky back to them.. I have put them on my stair way in my house. If not a sticky back do have something that will be adhesive that will stay on the back of the tread? Thanks Cindy

Answer: 
No they do not and they are not heavy enough to be used safely without a securing method.

Answer: 
These are simply rubber, with no adhesive. You should be able to affix them to many surfaces with silicon gel. Or double sided tape.

Answer: 
They don't but you could apply some. These are fairly heavy and thick. They don't seem to slide around. I have not permanently afixed them to the stairs because I like to be able to lift them and paint or clean underneath. I previously owned some that were not as high quality as these and they slid all over whenever we walked on them. These are so much heavier and well made, they don't really need to be glued down.

Answer: 
No, there is no sticky back. The treads are thick and heavy and seem to stay put on their own.

Answer: 
I bought the set of 4 "leaf pattern" treads for $20 and they do not have a sticky back but they are flexible and soft enough to stay put, at least they stay put in the summer when they are warm and soft. We have open-back steps and they don't even fall off the back. They really stay down tight. We also bought the more expensive set of 3 "scroll" design ($25) and they are thicker and do NOT stay put because they are more rigid and want to shift. Don't buy those. In the dead of winter when the snow comes, we will probably take them up and use sand and salt on the steps for safety..

Answer: 
The treads do not have a sticky back however due to the rubber, I have not had any issues with them moving. I have not in any way secured mine to the stairs. My stairs are not open back or sides so that may be a consideration.

Answer: 
No sticky back We nailed them to the stairs with small tacks on the outer edges and center of the thread. But of course these were outdoors. I dont know what you can do indoors without ruining your stairs with small holes.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question.
Unfortunately we do no currently carry a stair tread with a sticky backside. Check with your local home improvement and hardware stores or online to possibly accomodate your needs. They general carry an assortment of adhesives that are comprehensive to different applications of textile.

I would like to purchase these for my outdoor metal staircase. I am looking to adopt a dog and dogs do not like to walk on the metal grid of my 3 flights of stairs since it hurts their toes. I could secure these to the steps for safety, but if the holes are too big, it might not solve the problem if the dog's paws push through to the metal grid beneath the mat. I cannot tell how big the cutouts are by looking at the picture.

Thank you for your questions.
Improvements suggests that you not use these for this purpose. Some of the cutouts are up to 3 inches long. What we can recommend are the Poly Pro stair treads, product #'s 414229 30" Wide and 447309 48" Wide. These come in 4 colors and they have a polypropylene center that is ridged with a rubber back and frame.
