Most building codes require some type of stair nosing be installed on commercial, industrial or municipal stairs to provide anti slip properties. The primary benefit of this nosing is to add safety for pedestrians. Amstep offers an array of products engineered to increase traction on stairways and also add aesthetic appeal.

Stair Nosing Benefits

Amstep Series 231-A stair nosingAdditional benefits are gained if the stair nosing is of a contrasting color to the rest of the stair tread. This is to give a visual warning to pedestrians of the change in height from step to step or from landing to step. Some zoning laws require it only on the top and bottom step of a flight while others require every step to have a contrasting front.

Another benefit of this product is durability. A step with stair nosing installed will wear more slowly than a naked step. Since the nose of a stair gets more impact and contact than any other part of the step it would wear more quickly than the rest of the step. The step’s nosing is designed to stand up to more impact than the bare stair tread without cracking, wearing or breaking. Nothing will last forever, but your stairs will last longer with quality nose protection than they will without them.

Anti-slip stair nosing can be added when building new steps or when renovating existing steps. Amstep Products has models that cover both options with an aircraft grade aluminum base combined with epoxy bonded non slip materials.

For renovating existing staircases, either for metal stairs or concrete stairs, you can choose a variety of renovation style models from Amstep. Renovation-style products can be found in the 300 Series category on our website and come in 3”, 4” and 5” depths and has a no trip bevel at the back. To cover the entire tread including any existing nosing, there are great options in our 500 series and 700 series categories.
