The Cinderblock Treads
Cinderblocks as Treads?
WMSC investigated a case where cinderblocks were used as treads in an attempt to lessen the severe rise between the tread and the floor surface. The cinderblocks were placed on a sloped surface without any attempt to secure them to the floor. This case involved an unusual cultural cellar, incredibly excessive slopes, non-uniform risers, non-uniform treads and more.
Issues: dangerous walking surface, cinderblocks as treads, sloped treads, poor maintenance
