West End Flooring stair edgings (commercial stair nosing) can help to reduce accidents on stairs as well as helping to provide an ‘inclusive’ environment giving access to all building users. They also protect the edges of floor coverings from becoming worn or damaged, prolong the life of the floor coverings and prevent trip hazards from occurring.
West End Flooring stair edgings are offered in a choice of materials and four profile designs to accommodate most step shapes. A choice of gauges is offered to suit most floor coverings, whilst single, double or multiple channel options are available dependent on traffic levels and conditions.
In all contract flooring situations the fitting of suitable stair nosing (stair edging) is recommended. Stair nosings (stair edgings) are designed to suit many step profiles and they act as a safety feature on staircase floor coverings from wear and tear. DDA guidelines call for the application of stair nosing in a contrasting colour to the surrounding floor covering in all areas of public access and where appropriate, also corduroy tactiles at the approaches to stairways.
