New flooring accessories were required as part of a major Havering District Council refurbishment of council flats. The Stair Nosings were required to provide complete protection to the stair edge while being fully compliant with Equality Act regulations (formally DDA) which ensure that stairways are safe for all people.
For this project, it was essential that the Stair Nosings complied with strict dimension requirements. Also, a clearly visible contrasting band of colour on the Stair Nosing was essential in order to provide the safest possible staircase environment.
Working closely alongside Quantum Flooring, specialist flooring contractor Hales Flooring QRu-SF1 was determined to be the most suitable Stair Nosing profile as it fully met the needs of Havering London Borough Council.
The stair nosing provides a best practice solution for Equality Act regulations and also has a contemporary design feature which is in keeping with the aesthetics of the modern building. The product’s smooth surface provides a very easy low maintenance solution. Another key benefit in terms of safety is the unique slip resistant infill which allows the user’s foot to make complete contact with the leading edge of the step.
