“I have never seen in all my days that which so rejoiced my heart, as these things. For I saw among them amazing artistic objects, and I marveled over the subtle ingenuity of the men in these distant lands.” These were the words of the great Renaissance artist Albrecht Dürer when he first laid eyes upon the Aztec artifacts brought back from the then newly discovered Americas. The “Azteca” rubber stair treads take both their name and their design inspiration from the artistic style employed by the Aztec civilization in their art and architecture. This type of style seen on these staircase safety products was particularly popular for metalworking crafts. As rubber mats for steps, each mat brings with it a unique combination of aesthetic value and practical function that will surely be appreciated in any setting!
Anti-Slip Traction: It should not come as a surprise that staircases have the potential to be dangerous areas. Many people have suffered an unfortunate accident while going up or down the stairs. Staircase safety is a crucial factor to consider for any set of stairs, and that is where rubber stair treads come in. The rubber material used to make each anti-slip tread helps to provide more traction for the feet on top of them. Rubber comes with a naturally high coefficient of friction, meaning that it can grip feet much better than wood or tile. With these rubber mats for steps in place on your residential or commercial staircase, your chances of suffering a slip and fall accident are greatly reduced.
Eco-Friendly Rubber: By adding these rubber stair treads on your stairways, you are contributing to the reduction of non-biodegradable waste in the environment. Each anti-slip tread is made using a combination of natural and reclaimed rubbers. Natural rubber is the type of rubber that is first produced when the latex is acquired from trees. Reclaimed rubber, on the other hand, is the type of rubber produced by shredding and reusing discarded rubber, primarily from old vehicle tires. Natural rubber is eco-friendly because it occurs naturally without any man-made chemical or industrial process. Reclaimed rubber is eco-friendly because it removes unused rubber from the environment and puts it to use again in different forms.
Great Aesthetic Value: These rubber stair treads bring a high level of aesthetic value to any staircase they are placed upon. The design is inspired by the geometric designs often used by the Aztecs when they were crafting their metal-works. These staircase safety mats look great in both residential and commercial settings, regardless of whether it is indoors or outdoors. When your guests see this anti-slip tread on the step in front of them, they are sure to be impressed by the sense of style and taste on display.
Easy to move from place to place as you see fit
Durable enough to handle high volumes of foot traffic
Rubber helps to protect the existing surfaces of the stairs they are place on
Features gaps throughout its body to help facilitate the drainage of excess moisture or small solid debris particles like dirt and rocks
This Step Mat has a geometric design and is made to mimic old Mesoamerican art. It is designed to protect modern stairs and make them slip-resistant to foot-traffic. Why make your steps slip resistant? Globally, falls represent the third leading cause of disability after depression and anemia. Falls are also the second leading global cause of accidental death, after motor vehicle collisions. Stairs are a special worry since a fall may result in even more severe injury due to the geometric nature of stairs. Rubber is unaffected by moisture, has excellent weather resistant and offers great friction in all conditions. This makes rubber an ideal raw material for step mats.

Common threads run through the history of Mesoamerican art. The Olmec, Maya, Toltec, and Zapotec civilizations, amongst others, perpetuated an artistic tradition which displayed a love of monumental stone sculpture, imposing architecture, highly decorated metallurgy, and geometric stamps for fabric and body art. Metalwork was a particular skill of the Aztecs. The great Renaissance artist Albrecht Drurer saw some of the artifacts brought back to Europe which caused him to say, '... have never seen in all my days that which so rejoiced my heart, as these things. For i saw among them amazing artistic objects, and I marveled over the subtle ingenuity of the en in these distant lands'.
