The distinctive alternating tread design permits comfortable faceforward descents at steeper angles than conventional designs even at 68 degrees to horizontal. The cushioned central stringer all but eliminates the possibility of hitting the nosing of a tread in the event of a fall (unlike ladders, ship's ladders and spirals).

A 1988 Virginia Tech study compared the 68-degree alternating tread stair to a 68-degree ship's ladder.

Their conclusion: "Results from both the objective and subjective measures suggest that the alternating tread stair is safer and more comfortable than the ship's ladder.
