Range of PVC-U stair nosings.

Features and benefits:

  • Manufactured in Britain.
  • Available in straight or raked back profiles.
  • Suitable for use on stairs with vinyl or laminate floorcoverings.
  • Riser and tread can be in the same colour, a principal guideline from the Building Regulations and BS 8300:2:2018 which state that there should be a clear contrast on the nose of steps on stairways in areas of public access.
  • Suitable for installation in all categories of public and commercial buildings.
  • All over tread provides a slip resistant surface from the nose to the back edge, providing extra safety when ascending or descending stairs.
  • No dirt traps, easy to clean.

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.
