Floora did you know, staircases are a focal point in many buildings, and their safety and durability are important. Vinyl stair nosing plays a crucial role in protecting the edges of stairs, minimizing wear, and preventing slips and falls. Suitable for a wide range of settings, from residential homes to commercial buildings, our Johnsonite vinyl stair nosing combines functionality with sleek design to enhance any staircase.

Here’s what to consider when selecting vinyl stair nosing for your project:

  • Compatibility and Fit: Ensure the nosing fits the thickness and depth of your stair treads. Our range includes options for various stair sizes and materials.
  • Safety Features: Look for nosing with anti-slip surfaces to enhance safety. Visibility is also key, so consider nosing with integrated reflective or glow-in-the-dark strips for low-light conditions.
  • Material Quality and Durability: Our vinyl nosing is made from high-quality materials designed to withstand heavy foot traffic, resist wear and tear, and maintain its appearance over time.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Choose from a variety of colors and finishes that complement your stair material and overall interior design. Vinyl nosing can be a subtle addition or a standout feature, depending on your preference.

Buying Tip: For commercial spaces or areas with higher safety requirements, opt for nosing that exceeds local building codes and safety standards.

  • Adhesive Application: Use the recommended adhesive for vinyl materials to secure the nosing in place. Apply evenly and press firmly for optimal adhesion.
  • Finishing Touches: After installation, inspect each step to ensure the nosing is securely attached and there are no sharp edges or corners.

Buying Tip: Consider the design of your staircase and your overall space when choosing your vinyl stair nosing. And don’t forget the caulk!
