What is Stair Nosing?

Stair nosing is a covering strip for the edge of the stair tread, the most frequently stepped upon part of your stairs. This part of the stair is prone to wear, which makes it dangerously slippery as well as worn-down and unattractive. Installing quality stair nosing helps with grip to ensure maximum safety when using the staircase as well as enhancing the aesthetic of the stair and protecting it from scratches and scuffing. 

What is Flexible Stair Nosing?

Flexible stair nosing is a resilient stair nosing that can bend to fit curved bullnose or curtail steps. It is great for a range of hard flooring types, like vinyl tile and laminate floor coverings. Flexible stair nosing can come in a variety of materials, like flexible PVC stair nosing, to suit a variety of stair types. 

What Are the Benefits of Flexible Stair Nosing?

Flexible stair nosing can offer a range of fantastic benefits, particularly for non-domestic staircases. These include:

  • Enhanced safety: Safety flooring and staircase safety are vital in the workplace and in commercial and retail properties. Flexible stair nosing is particularly effective for grip due to the small gap present between the nosing and step which compresses each time someone walks on it. This compression expands the surface area allowing for increased foot grip and a slip-resistant stair solution. 
  • Versatility: Flexible stair nosing can be bent to fit curved staircases, meaning it’s versatile and able to fit a host of different stair styles. The stair nosing we sell can be easily cut to fit any length, so is an ideal solution if you have steps of differing sizes and lengths.
  • Attractive aesthetic: When your stairs are getting heavy foot traffic, or even long term light traffic, the stair edgings can get worn. This results in a shabby and unfinished look for your staircase. With our beautifully made collection of stair nosing products, you can avoid this for an aesthetically pleasing finish to your stairs that keeps them looking fresh. Our curved nose design gives a soft look that yields a positive visual impression. 
  • Value for money: All of our products are designed to stand the test of time. With the superior longevity of our products paired with the high performing practical function, flexible stair nosing from Stair Rods Direct is a cost-effective investment. You’ll find the upkeep of your staircase is reduced and that it will stay looking good for longer, meaning you spend less money in the long term.
