Use this CSI 3-part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify resilient stair treads and risers on construction projects.
The section includes stair treads and raisers fabricated from rubber or vinyl and installed on concrete, steel, and wood stairs.
Installation improves the aesthetics of a stair system and reduces noise from foot traffic, particularly on steel stairs, and increases slip resistance.
USAB & ADA compliance
