Failsafe photoluminescent stair nosing (stair edging) tread for internal and external use.

Features and benefits:

  • Highly durable and extremely hardwearing: ten year project warranty available.
  • Photoluminescent material illuminates the step edge.
  • Suitable for internal and external use - the strip will recharge with exposure to both natural and artificial light and subsequently glow in the dark if the light source is removed.
  • Incorporates a silicon carbide band to increase slip resistance.

Potential for slip (all treads):

Independently tested by Grip Potential Ltd. All tread options have a minimum PTV of 36+ in a wet test and 60+ in a dry test; this is considered ‘Low Slip Potential’.

All products are available in a variety of stock lengths and packing; see manufacturer's literature for details.
