Quantum Flooring Solutions announces the launch of its new recessed heavy duty stair nosing. This high performance profile has been developed to fit staircases for commercial and public buildings, where a recessed stair nosing is necessary.
Quantum’s highly durable new stair nosing is specifically designed for venues with high levels of foot traffic. It incorporates a low slip-potential tread, along with grooves in the metal at the front and back of the stair nosing. This helps to ensure the safe movement of people in both dry and wet conditions. This makes it ideal for projects such as stadiums, university campuses or transport infrastructure.
It can be fitted with Quantum’s EcoGlo photoluminescent tread, making it excellent for installation in low-light or outside areas.
It adheres to all relevant guidelines in the Equality Act (formerly the DDA) and Building Regulations best practice. The profile is also compatible with Quantum’s Plus-Tread material, for extra grip and safety.
This heavy duty stair nosing from Quantum can be affixed to most types of recessed staircases. It is compatible with concrete, timber, resin, and stone-clad steel staircase construction methods. The profile can be attached directly to the steps with Q-Fix cartridge adhesive, which has extra strong bonding properties.
