Step Pads

Apr 17, 2017

It’s no secret that boat decks and stairs get slippery when wet. To help provide traction and increase safety for those aboard, Beckson Marine offers the Step-Mate® All Weather Non-Skid Step Pad. Its flexible material adapts to the surface on which it’s mounted, and it can be cut to size.

Sold in pairs, each Step Pad incorporates heavy-duty tread and is 12″L x 3″ W. Installation is simple, as users simply clean the surface for the pad, remove the protective paper from the self-adhesive backing and press it into place. The durable Step Pad won’t crack or discolor after prolonged use.

Perfect for stairs and transom areas, the Step Pad can also add non-skid protection on deck and in the galley, head or engine room. It can likewise serve as a kick pad in high-traffic areas prone to scuff marks. Step Pad can even buffer contact of opened doors or storage cabinets with other surfaces.

Available in black, brown or white, the Beckson Marine Step-Mate All-Weather Non-Skid Step Pad has a suggested retail price of $14.30 per pair. Custom colors and sizes for boatbuilders are available with quantity orders.
