Quantum Flooring’s Aluminium and uPVC Stair Nosings (stair edgings) help to make a stairway safe. As a slip resistant stair part fitted onto the nose of each step, they help to clearly define the steps on a stair when a contrasting colour to the stair floor covering is chosen. They also serve to protect the edges and floor covering on a stair, reducing the amount of potential wear and tear.
These features have the benefit of helping to make a stair safer by reducing the risk of an overstep or fall, and are part of the guidelines contained in the Building Regulations (K&M), BSI documents and a BRE paper that embody the requirements of the Equality Act (2010).
The correct stair nosing (stair edging) for a given application depends on several factors. Gauge (thickness) of stair floorcovering, shape to match step profile, dimensions, tread cover, colour and LRV difference.
