Modular external stair nosing and safety innovation
The perfect combination – ideal external nosing and safety tread solution
Artech is a well-known brand of anti-slip treads sold to both specifiers and contractors. However, it is the recently launched a range of stair nosings (ideal for external steps), that we want to draw your attention to. The major benefit is the fact it is a modular system, that means ease of installation and perfect stair coverage, no matter how deep the combination of stairs you are working on happens to be. This fits perfectly with the SASGO ethos of innovative approaches to keep the project moving and reduce complexity.
Stair nosings define and reinforce step edges. They eliminate excessive wear patterns, especially in high traffic areas. And by eliminating excessive wear patterns, they improve safety. They also combat slip hazards, and through visual cues help your customer meet their Disability Discrimination Act obligations.
TREADLINE from Artech is a heavy duty anti-slip, durable and aesthetically appealing floor safety solution that can be used to minimise the risk of trips or injuries throughout the workplace and is especially suited for external staircases. The profile is manufactured from a heavy-duty aluminium alloy and inserts are made from carborundum, a silicon carbide abrasive, ensuring maximum safety and durability. It can provide the ideal solution for wet or greasy environments.
A very small range of profiles gives you all you need. Although other colours are available on request (and subject to minimum order quantities), popular black, yellow, and white carborundum inserts are available from stock. The aluminium profiles can be fitted into the step or adhered to the step. The modular range consists of 3 elements a nosing (which is available as a straight edged or angled nosing piece), an extension piece with 3 anti-slip treads (that can be more than doubled up for wider stairs) and finally an aluminium end piece, that finishes off the tread (used when not recessing the profile). It is also possible to combine tread colours to create a high impact safety feature. Plus, there are also two stand-alone profiles that combine the nosing and tread part of the profile into a single piece. It really could not be simpler!
