Stair treads or nosings are made from non-slip silicon carbide or other special non-slip materials to help ensure pedestrian safety. What Latham refers to as stair tread nosings are sometimes also referred to as Latham treads, step treads, anti-slip nosings, slip-resistant nosings, or step nosings. Essentially they all have the same function, which is to improve visual contrast & grip on stairways to promote pedestrian and public safety.
Asbraloy ST Series Surface Mounted Safety Stair Tread Nosings are designed to be installed in existing applications, where a possible hazard has been identified or where pedestrian safety becomes of paramount concern.
The system can be installed on just about all flooring finished including stone, tile, timber, terrazzo, concrete, pavers, brick, vinyl and carpet.
