Photo Luminescent

For use in emergency exit stairways or where extra visibility is indicated, our non-slip photoluminescent stair nosings are perfect for interior or exterior installation. They provide 30-times the illumination of conventional glow-in-the-dark stair tread edging and are manufactured to exceed New York City RS 6-1 and RS 6-1A Brightness Rating Requirements. Our stair nosings are easy to clean, non-flammable, non-toxic, non-radioactive, and built strong enough for permanent installation in the heaviest traffic areas.


Abrasive Strips

Abrasive strips are typically used in concrete, wood or monumental stair construction. For monumental stairs, the minimal width of these bars will not detract from the beauty of the stairs. Small grooves are cut into the stairs, and the bar is held in place with epoxy. Since these bars are flexible, they can also be used on curved stairs. The bars come in three standard sizes and 11 standard colors. Also available in photoluminescent for an additional charge. Custom sizes and colors are available as well. Can be used on interior and exterior stairs to provide slip resistance.
