Stair nosing for hotels

Thursday 10 March, 2022

Stair nosing in hotels has long been a stylish inclusion for the traditional interior design. Many of the sweeping staircases of large hotel chains have used stair nosing to help give the feel of comfort and luxury.

Contemporary hotels, with sleek and modern interior design, are also turning to stair nosing to boost the creative aesthetics of their staircases. 

With today’s manufacturing techniques, it now means that there is a much wider range of stair nosing styles available for hotels to choose from, these include:

Complimenting the range of styles for the hotel stair nosing, it is now possible to choose from a variety of finishes, helping to match the design finish of the hotel. These include:

  • Polished Brass
  • Satin Brass
  • Bronze Antique Metal
  • Nickel
  • Antique Brass

Why fit hotel stair nosing?

The installation of stair nosing has been shown to help extend the life of the staircase flooring by protecting it from the wear of high footfall. By investing in the stair nosing protection, it means that the expense of changing the flooring more frequently will be reduced.

It is also well known that anti-slip stair nosing should be used in areas of public footfall, but hotels are increasingly turning to stair nosing to help with both safety and the enhancement of their stylish interior design. 

It is worth highlighting that any hotel installing new stair nosing needs to ensure it adheres to the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and meets the latest Building Regulations. 

We have compiled some additional information to help you understand the DDA and Building regulations requirements.

Supporting the hotel brand reputation

Our years of experience has taught us that hotels, particularly those with more than one location, need to ensure there is consistency in the stair nosing manufacture to support their brand’s reputation. 

Our proven manufacturing track record has shown time and again that we can meet these needs and deliver the stair nosing you need.

Throughout our manufacturing process, we work closely with Architects, Interior Designers and Fit-out companies to collect the precise stair nosing measurements, along with the material specifications and project delivery times. 

The designers and hotel owners require the peace of mind that the stair nosing will be accurately manufactured and delivered on time and within budget. 

Whilst there are many smaller independent hotels that have made use of our products, there are also some highly prestigious hotel brands that we have had the pleasure of working with, including:

  • The Berkeley Hotel 
  • The Ritz London 
  • Sheraton Hotels

Stair nosing for hotel service areas 

It is not just the hotel’s “front of house” that can benefit from the installation of stair nosing. There are areas throughout the hotel, that their customers do not see, which can also benefit from the hardware and anti-slip properties of stair nosing. 

These hard-wearing areas include:

  • Service areas 
  • Delivery areas
  • Fire escapes 
  • Stair wells

It will be particularly important that the fire escapes and stair wells have the tough, anti-slip stair nosing in place to help reduce the risks of slipping during an emergency. 

As can be seen from this article, there are some extremely good reasons for hotels to have their staircases fitted with stair nosing, not only physical and aesthetical reasons, but also brand reputational support.
