Q Range – Aluminium Stair Nosing/ Stair Edging for Concrete and No Floorcovering

Range of narrow gauge aluminium stair nosings.

Features and benefits:

  • Manufactured in Britain.
  • Available in a range of profiles.
  • Suitable for use on stairs with vinyl or laminate floorcoverings.
  • 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.
  • Satin etched aluminium riser surface is scratch resistant and inhibits the potential for 'glare', one of the requirements of the latest BS 8300:2:2018 and Building Regulation guidelines applicable to stairways in areas of Public Access.
  • 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.
