NEW: ABDEFENDER® - Rubber Flooring


Selecting ABDEFENDER® rubber floor tiles and stair treads is your first line of defense for emergency exit stairways of high buildings requiring superior fire-retardant properties and low smoke development.

ABDEFENDER® Stair Treads & Tiles are available in 6 Colors. The tiles are available in a round profile and in sizes 18"x18" or 36"x36".

Learn more about ABDEFENDER®  in the brochure.


Emergency exit stairways of high buildings require rubber stair tread and flooring material to meet ASTM E84 Tunnel Test Class A and CAN/ULC-S102.2. This is in order to limit hazards to buildings and their occupants in case of a fire emergency.

Materials that meet these stringent norms are considered extremely fire resistant, to be a slower smoke and fire spread hazard, and ultimately made to protect occupants and buildings in case of emergency.

The requirements for material used for emergency and fire exits may vary from city, state, local, and federal government agencies and may require non-combustible building materials that meet ASTM E84 Class A.
