Stair nosing – The designer safety feature

Monday 15 March, 2021

Stair nosing has been used in everything from manor houses and private residencies through to public buildings and hotels. Stair nosings have often been fitted as a non-slip safety feature, but they can also be installed as a stylish interior design feature, enhancing the visual appeal of the staircase.

These hard-wearing anti-slip stair nosing have been designed with safety in mind for the stairs that will have a heavy footfall. They have been designed for both internal and external stairs so are perfect for public buildings or public access walkways, providing the visual contracts and anti-slip properties to meet with current building regulations.
