What is Stair Nosing?

Stair nosing is just one of many parts of a staircase. Stair nosing is a strip of material that is attached to the lips of each step edge within a staircase. It can protrude out or fit seamlessly. This part of the stair gets the most foot traffic and can therefore be worn down, resulting in a slippery surface and a shabby look. Stair nosing helps to guard against this.

Stair nosing can be many different materials depending on the material the stair to which it’s attaching is. 

Stair nosing is typically made of one of the following:

  • Metal 
  • Solid wood 
  • Laminate 
  • Rubber 
  • Vinyl
  • PVC

What Are the Benefits of Stair Nosing?

There are many attractive benefits to purchasing and installing stair nosing for your staircase, whether it’s a workplace staircase, commercial staircase, or domestic.

These include:

  • Increased stair safety:
    In any property, workplace or not, ensuring safety on the stairs is vital. Installing stair nosing allows for increased grip while stepping on a stair, reducing risk of slips and trips. Different materials will have better anti-slip benefits to guard against tripping hazards. Not only this, but stair nosing that protrudes can also be a great safety addition to a staircase as it’s more obvious and signals where a person needs to step. 
  • Versatility:
    Stair nosing is simple to install and can be cut to size easily, so you can fit your nosing to any stair – even if you have multiple stairs that differ in length. Curved staircases are no problem with the existence of flexible stair nosing
  • Aesthetic enhancing:
    If you get heavy foot traffic on your staircase, it will be very prone to wear and tear. Constant stepping means worn stair edges as well as unattractive scratches and scuffs. With stair nosing, you minimise this risk and add an appealing finish to your stairs that shows professional design consideration. Create a positive visual impression on your stairs for longer with our superb products.

    We craft each of our products with long term use in mind. When you purchase from Stair Rods Direct, you get stair accessories that stand the test of time. Upkeep of stairs is minimised with quality stair nosing, making it an extremely canny investment in the long run.
