Tiled staircases are hard-wearing and easy to clean, but each step's leading-edge is left vulnerable to damage from foot traffic.
Our stair nosing design provides a neat outside angle and protection from chips and adds grip, preventing slips and falls. Tile edge trims of this nature form part of a complete tiling installation or are retrofitted due to the product's utilisation not being considered at the initial phase.
Protection & Safety
In a public space, stair nosings not only guard against damage, help prevent slips but also highlight the edge of the step; this can be especially useful to those with visual impairment. Used with a contrasting riser will hugely assist in this, enabling safe ascent for all.
Wet steps are a safety concern, even with slip-resistant tiles, scoring high on wet pendulum tests. The addition of a stair nosing creates an added area of grip, aiding in the avoidance of slips, which on stairs is paramount to health and safety.
