Stair nosings are an important health and safety element of any commercial building. They help to reduce accidents on stairs by providing slip resistance at the edge of the step and by providing a visual contrast to highlight the edge of the step.
They also help to protect the step edge and surrounding floor covering which in turn reduces maintenance costs and improves the overall aesthetic of the building.
There are many considerations to take into account when specifying the correct stair nosing for a project. You need to consider:
- Choosing the right nosing and fixing for the step
- The correct slip resistance for the conditions
- Choosing a colour that visually contrasts
Likewise, floor trims and accessories; whether you require transition strips, expansion joint covers, matwell frames, skirting or capping strips or cover formers all need to be selected with the specific function in mind. The volume and form of traffic, flooring surfaces, access and the aesthetics of the building all need consideration.
