...How Does It Work?

When walking down a conventional staircase, each foot normally uses only about half of each tread, stepping out and over the unused section. On steep stairs or ladders, the unused half tread becomes an obstacle by significantly reducing the usable tread depth of the tread directly below. As the angle increases, the problem increases as well. The Alternate Tread Stair removes the unused half of each tread, allowing the foot to reach the next tread in a straight and direct line, providing more usable tread depth.
