Stair Nosings act as a safety feature on stairways whilst protecting the edge of the floor covering. The equality Act (formally DDA) calls for the application of stairnosings to be a contrasting colour to the floor covering.
Over a 100,000 injuries are reported on non-domestic stairs each year and the latest HSE figures show that 200 deaths result directly from fall and trips on stairs
Stair edgings are available in a wide choice of materials and many profile designs to accommodate different step shapes. A choice of gauges are offered to suit most floorcoverings, whilst single, double or multiple channel options are available dependent on the level of footfall and conditions. We use leading stair nosing manufacturers such as Gradus & Quantum Profile Systems.
