Never as in the photo shown. If placed, always inset into tread.

Did you ever get a reply or answer to your question?

I was curious if anyone has come across any issues with the height of metal anti-slip inserts into wood treads.

I have a commercial project where there are three anti-slip inserts that protrude from the top of the tread approximately 10/32" near the nose of the stair(pictures attached).  My concern is that they make the treads uneven to walk on and could catch someone's high heal, causing a fall down the stairway.

We are on the 2015 IBC and section 1011.7.1 (stairway walking surface) does not seem to provide any insight into the texture of the stair or regulations regarding the maximum height of these anti-slip inserts.

I was curious if anyone else has failed a similar installation and what  they would reference if forced to site a code section.

Thanks for you insights.
