The Aztec civilization left behind a great legacy of art and architecture. Their works are still present in many parts of Central and South America, and they have inspired countless minds with their unique and complex culture. The elegant beauty of their art struck even the Renaissance art maestro, Albrecht Dürer. These rubber stair treads are designed with Aztec art as a point of inspiration. The geometric shapes are something that one would have seen in old Aztec metalworking arts. Beyond the aesthetic value of these rubber step covers, your stairways will benefit from the safety qualities that the rubber material brings with it. Use these rubber mats for stairs located in both indoor and outdoor settings.
Step Surface Protection: Stairways are high traffic areas. Someone is always going to go up and down them. This is true for your home’s staircase and your office’s stairwell. Often times, steps are made of sensitive materials like wood, laminate, or tile. Repairing these surfaces can be very expensive. In order to reduce the chances of this happening, rubber stair covering should be used. The rubber is strong enough to be the perfect barrier between abrasive feet and sensitive surfaces.
Anti-Slip Safety: While the rubber stair treads help to protect the stairs themselves, they will also help to keep you and your guests safe. Again, the secret behind this is in the rubber material used to make the treads. Rubber is a material that naturally comes with a high level of friction. This helps to ensure that your feet experience enough pushback so as to keep you safe, upright, and stable on the stairs. This is the biggest benefit of having rubber mats for stairs in place. With so many accidents occurring on stairways, it should come as no surprise that anti-slip safety is the primary reason why people have rubber step covers placed on their stairs.
Eco-Friendly Rubber Material: This rubber stair covering is an eco-friendly product thanks to the natural and reclaimed rubber used to make them. Reclaimed rubber, in particular, has become a popular elastomer material to use because it helps to reduce the levels of non-biodegradable rubber waste present in the environment. Primarily harvested from discarded vehicle tires, reclaimed rubber provides an excellent level of durability at a fraction of the price of competing synthetic products. These rubber stair treads can help you contribute to keeping the environment clean.

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'.
