Stair Nosing Can Protect You from Falling at Critical Moments!

In rainy and snowy weather, you have to be careful when going up and down the stairs every day. If you don't pay attention, you will slip. It's ok if the stairs are short. If the stairs are long, it's estimated that you will badly injured. The installation of tactile stair nosing can at least prevent you from falling and save your life at the critical moment, so pay attention to this protective strip when installing tactile stair nosing. How to calculate the size of stair stair nosing?

1. Material of tactile stair nosing

Installing stair nosings on stairs can not only prevent us from slipping when going upstairs and downstairs, but also protect the perspective of stair steps. The common materials of tactile stair nosing include cement, iron filings, emery, metal strip, mosaic and stair nosing cylinder brick. The stair nosing should highlight the stair tread, but it can't be too high. About 2-3cm is more appropriate.

In order to avoid the illusion when going up and down the stairs, the height and length of the stair nosing on each step on the stairs should be the same. If it must be changed, it should be controlled within a few centimeters, preferably not more than 2-3 centimeters.

2. Installation of tactile stair nosing

The length of tactile stair nosing is generally calculated as the distance between the two ends of stair step minus 300mm, which is calculated as an extension meter. The tactile stair nosing is usually pulled through. For example, if the step length is 1m, the stair nosing is also 1m, unless there are other colors on both sides of the step.

Generally, there are about 15 ~ 20 cm walking floor tiles of different colors on both sides of the stair step, and the step is in the middle. Anti-slip strips are installed at the position of 3 ~ 5 cm inward along the mouth of the step. Generally, two strips are enough. The best interval between the two anti-slip strips is 3 ~ 5 cm, which looks more coordinated.

3. Types of tactile stair nosing

There are generally three kinds of tactile stair nosing. One is angle wrapped, which is the common L-shaped, which can protect the side of the stair. The second is I-shaped, which is fixed with screws, and the installation position is generally directly against the step edge. The third is the stair nosing. Open two seams on the stair step, and then insert it directly.

For the sake of safety, it is recommended to install tactile stair nosing on the stairs. In this way, even if it snows and rains, you don't have to worry about slipping down the stairs.
