American Step Company, Inc. manhole steps are manufactured from tough copolymer polypropylene plastic reinforced by steel rebar and are designed and manufactured to deliver maximum product safety and longevity in the harshest of onsite conditions.

Originally, the plastic manhole step consisted of rebar encapsulated within the copolymer polypropylene plastic. However, requests by customers and design engineers over the years have prompted us to offer other types of core reinforcement. The result of this is we offer two levels of optional reinforcement.

Choice of steel reinforcement;

1/2 inch (13mm) diameter Deformed Reinforcing Steel available in 3 grades;

1) 1/2" stainless steel reinforcement conforming to ASTM A 955 as an option,
2) 1/2" Epoxy Coated ASTM A 615 Gr 60 steel reinforcement as an option and
3) 1/2" ASTM A 615 Gr 60 steel reinforcement as standard.


Corrosion protection and strength are the most critical manufacturing factors in manhole step production. Copolymer polypropylene has proven itself as a material that offers excellent corrosion resistance in extreme environments. Our manhole steps are made of a super high impact grade of copolymer polypropylene. This material exhibits both excellent cold impact resistance and high rigidity.
