False stair treads have a 1/2″ thick body with a full 1″ thick nosing. This product is perfect for stairs where the construction treads are already secured and carpet is going to be run through the middle of the stairway. Cove moulding and risers should be ordered separately.
All our False Treads are 6 1/2″ wide, with a depth of 11 1/4″. Left & Right Hand Return have an additional 1 1/4″ in width due to the attached return. False treads are designed to be cut and trimmed to fit by installers on the job site. Since the body of the tread is 1/2″ thick, it should match well to the thickness of the carpet and pad. The structure under the product should be secure. Dimensional lumber such as 2 x 10’s, 2 x 12’x, or 2 x 4’s form a good base for false treads. Construction adhesive and screws are recommend for attaching the false treads. The returns on the false treads are rounded for the proper appearance. If you need to trim the returns, a belt sander or palm sander and 60 grit sandpaper will get them rounded back to shape.
