Thick stair treads are designed for strength and beauty for full exposure. Our 8066 is 1 3/4″ thick & 11 1/4″ deep (custom dimensions are available). The products are sanded on all 6 sides and come standard with a 1/8” radius on all 8 edges.
Standard thick treads have 3 – 5 splices of wood edge glued together to reach 11 1/4″ depth.
No return treads are cut to exact width that you order. Left & right hand thick treads are shipped 1 1/4″ wider than the width you select. Double return treads are 2 1/2″ wider than the width you select.
when you say right hand return… what does that mean? the right hand side of the treat is sanded?
Thank you for contacting us Georgios. Right hand return refers to an extra portion of the tread that protrudes from the right side of the tread when standing at the bottom of the flight of stairs and looking up.
