External Stair Nosing Solution Guide

Quantum Flooring Solutions has released an External Solution Guide for projects involving outside staircases. This digital document aims to showcase the Quantum stair nosings and tread materials which best assist in the safe movement of people at outdoor venues or approaches to buildings.

The guide highlights projects where Quantum stair nosings have been fitted for external usage. This includes hospitals, amusement parks and transport hubs.

Building Regulations and The Equality Act are important touchstones for this type of project, but this guide pays particular attention to BS8300-2:2018. BS8300-2:2018 is the most recent update of British Standards guidelines on the code of practice for the accessible and inclusive construction of built environments. This includes looking at the suitability of stair nosings for different environments and ensuring that slips, trips and falls are kept to a minimum.

Quantum are experts in the field of slip resistance, and have a number of slip resistant stair nosings which assist in making external staircases safe to use. There are a range of options, from very heavy-duty recessed stair nosings and Ecoglo photoluminescent tread material, to PVC treadsteps which can be fitted into existing steps.

Free measures and site surveys are available, and this guide highlights just some of the options which are available if you choose Quantum stair nosings for your external project.
