Stair treads are horizontal surfaces that form stairs and allow you to move from one level to another. They are a key element of stairs, ensuring gradual distribution of height between different levels of terrain, building or structure. Stair treads can have different forms, sizes and materials depending on the design and application. Typical stair treads consist of two main elements: treads and sub-treads. Treads are horizontal surfaces on which we walk, while sub-treads are spaces between them. The shape, angle, slope, width and depth may vary depending on the design and local construction trends.
