GLOVERSVILLE, NY – October 14, 2003 - Taylor Made Products has introduced a new line of durable dock steps with non-slip treads for safety when boarding and disembarking.


The new StepSafe™ portable dock steps come with a black non-slip pad adhered to the top of each step. They are available in one-, two- and three-step configurations. Optional hand-rails are offered with the two- and three-step models. A 1 ½ inch flange around the base offers additional stability and prevents the stairs from wobbling when mounting.


The StepSafe stairs are molded in durable UV-resistant polyethylene, which cleans easily with soap and water.
