Choice of color enhances the appeal of these handsome safety stair nosings. Designed for heavy duty use indoors and outdoors, these safety nosings meet and exceed all OSHA and Barrier-Free requirements.
IMPACT RESISTANT: These nosings are manufactured from an extruded aluminum base filled with a mixture of anti-slip abrasive granules in an advanced formula epoxy binder. Their remarkable strength is capable of absorbing heavy impact.
BARRIER-FREE: The designs shown are in compliance with the Barrier-Free Code, ensuring those physically impaired complete access to public buildings.
ANTI-SLIP SURFACE: Each abrasive-filled rib projects above the aluminum base for the greatest exposure of anti-slip surface in any tread now being produced in the United States.
CHOICE OF COLOR: Colors are locked into the epoxy abrasive mixture and will not fade or wear off, maintaining a rich color to blend with any decor.
ECONOMICAL: Using our exclusive automated filling machinery, these extruded base safety nosings are manufactured et three times the speed of ordinary methods. This labor saving method reduces cost.
