ProKnee’s Treadman Tool Box ‘transforms into Cutting Block’

INSTALLING stair treads? This Tool Box/Cutting Block is said by ProKnee to be the perfect aid to the ProKnee Treadman Multi Angle Stair Tread Cutting System, a tool designed and engineered for the stair tread installation profession.

This ‘blade-friendly’ self-storage box is made from high-density polyethylene and transforms into an expanded heavy duty cutting surface specifically designed to cut and handle rubber stair treads up to 1.98m in length, says the company, adding that when open, the box provides a 32.7cm wide x 196.85cm long surface with a 5.08cm vertical surface for cutting nosings.

The Treadman itself is a tool designed for the stair tread installer, novice and experienced alike, that will reportedly cut your installation time in half and provide you with ‘precise, professional results every time, thus eliminating the chance of costly mistakes’.

Continues the company: ‘What makes Treadman a unique and invaluable tool is its design and function that side steps tricky and time-consuming professional installation techniques, such as 3-wall scribing and pattern scribing. By securely locking in each step/tread’s specific geometry, Treadman acts as your template and cutting guide for quick, accurate and perfectly cut stair treads that conform to the most difficult of steps you may come up against.

‘Treadman is a portable lightweight tool weighing 2.95kgs that’s made up of 1.59mm steel plates and built to withstand a lifetime of cutting. With large easy to adjust knobs and spring-loaded edge plates, Treadman makes your next measurement as quick and easy as your last. Treadman’s standard unit has the ability to expand in length from 89.5cm to 156.2cm, but with three other optional extension kits, Treadman’s range will actually expand from 60.96cm up to 275.59cm.’ Concludes the company: ‘Treadman’s rubber stair tread thickness gauge automatically adjusts from .794mm to 6.35mm. With very little practice and time you’ll have mastered this tool, which in turn rewards professionals with time savings and results of perfection.’
