Embrace cast iron with our black patina finish

In contrast to paint, a converted rust patina not only endures without failure but also matures gracefully over time, evolving into a rich, blackened rust patina.

Richmond Iron uses an industrial strength rust converter on naturally rust aged iron to create a beautiful, hard, anti-slip, black patina finish.

Open riser treads can be made custom in any length up to 54″ long, but treads in standard lengths and stock designs with list pricing are fully documented in our Catalog. We recommend evaluating our stock designs for your project for open riser treads before requesting custom tread pricing. Even though our treads are made to order, catalog treads have shorter lead times and lower costs.
