The use of ladders exposes personnel to increased levels of risk and elevates liability concerns for employers. Outdoor applications can raise the odds of an accident by adding rain, snow or ice to the equation. ALGRIP Slip-Resistant Ladder Rungs and Covers feature unique, laser-welded deposits with unparalleled durability and slip-resistance, making them a wise choice for high-risk applications.


Design Features

ALGRIP Slip-Resistant Ladder Rungs and Covers are designed to provide an added measure of safety to both new and retrofit construction projects. Ladder Rungs are intended for use in the production of new ladders. Rung Covers are formed to fit over top of existing rungs, for a quick and cost effective method of upgrading ladders already in service.

Ross’ patented CNC laser deposition process applies more than 1,000 rugged, custom-alloy deposits per square foot in a highly precise and uniform pattern. The superior bond strength of these deposits not only increases the useful product life, but also allows nearly any type of onsite fabrication without compromising the traction providing surface. And the smooth area between raised deposits helps deter the pooling of liquids and trapping of solids, which results in a product that exhibits exceptional self-cleaning characteristics.

ALGRIP is an ideal choice for a variety of applications requiring slip-resistant working surfaces, such as:

  • Rooftops
  • Machinery and equipment
  • Water towers
  • Wastewater tanks
  • Platforms
  • Loading docks


Thousands of companies have chosen ALGRIP products to help mitigate their exposure to slip and fall risks. ALGRIP Ladder Rungs and Covers are ideal for a wide range of project applications and industries including:

Technical Data

ALGRIP Slip-Resistant Ladder Rungs and Covers are manufactured using technologically advanced machinery developed by Ross to ensure the highest level of quality and consistency. We start with the base material that best suits your application. Choose from various grades of lightweight aluminum, corrosion-resistant stainless or durable carbon steel. Next, we laser-weld a minimum of 1,000 anti-slip deposits per square foot to the traffic side of the selected material.

These welded deposits penetrate the metal substrate to produce a permanent, sub-surface bond tested to a maximum hardness of up to 60 on the Rockwell C scale and a maximum static coefficient of friction of 0.97 COF in accordance with ASTM C1028-89. Finally, the rungs and covers are custom fabricated, if needed, to meet the size and profile requirements of your project’s specifications. The result is a ladder with durability and slip resistance properties like no other.
