Quantum Stair Nosings (stair edgings) help to make a stair or stairway safe. As a slip resistant stair part fitted onto the nose of each step, they help to clearly define the steps on a stair when a contrasting colour to the stair floor covering is chosen. They also serve to protect the edges and floor covering on a stair, reducing the amount of potential wear and tear.
These two features have the benefit of helping to make a stair safer by reducing the risk of an overstep or fall, and are part of the guidelines contained in the Building Regulations (K&M), BSi documents and a BRE paper that embody the requirements of the Equality Act (2010).
The correct stair nosing for a given application depends on several factors. Gauge (thickness) of stair floorcovering, shape to match step profile, dimensions, tread cover, colour and LRV difference.
Quantum Flooring Solutions has tools that help end users, architects, specifiers, facilities managers and flooring contractors to select the correct profile for a given project. These can be obtained on-line at www.quantumflooring.co.uk or the specifiers A4 product guide or by calling 0161 627 4222.
