ECOGLO® F6 SERIES FLAT STAIR NOSINGS

F6 FLAT STAIR NOSINGS

The F6 Series is a right-angled aluminium step nosing for fitting to the edge of steps in public stairways, exit ways and all other applications where pathfinding in darkness and step edge contrast is an issue. The Ecoglo® F6 series has a 3 inch (78mm) tread to cover up imperfections or irregularities in the step, and is designed to be visible in all light conditions to enhance the safe and efficient movement of people. It also provides an extra non-slip surface supplementing the step’s own non-slip properties.

The F6 step nosing is designed to reduce falls and enhance egress speed in all egress situations. The F6 series flat nosing can also be fitted over steps with an industrial or commercial type carpet (with no underlay) and up to 0.3 inch (6mm) thick.
