Anti-Slip Stair Nosing


Anti-Slip Stair Nosing Adds Extra Safety to Your Staircase

A stair nosing overhangs the top of a stair’s tread, giving extra space for feet while protecting the edge of the stairs from wear and tear and damage, especially in areas with high foot traffic. Aussie Tactiles supply anti-slip stair nosing that not only protects the treads but adds an extra safety measure to staircases - especially important in commercial spaces. It is also vital to have a balustrade or railing alongside four or more stairs for added safety.


Benefits of Non-Slip Stair Nosing

Steps are vulnerable to wear and tear, especially where it supports many pedestrians each day. Non-slip nosing protects the entire step surface and offers several benefits.

  • Since stair nosing protrudes over the edge of the tread, it creates extra space for feet. This overhang defines the tread's edge, making it more easily visible, especially for people with poor eyesight and staircases with low lighting, reducing trips and falls.
  • There are several different stair nosing designs to choose from, which will add to the aesthetic look of the staircase.
  • When assessing the options to make your staircase safe, you can choose between rubber, composite, and liquid epoxy resin as non-slip stair nosing. The use of metal nosing on treads that have regular foot traffic protects the edges.
