Ecoglo® F6B Series Flat Stair Nosing

F6B FLAT STAIR NOSINGS

The F6B series a right-angled aluminum step nosing designed to fit the edge of steps in public stairways, exit ways and all other applications where pathfinding in darkness is an issue. The Ecoglo® F6B series is designed to be visible for an extended period of time, well after the lights go out, to enhance egress safety and efficiency. This stair nosing also provides an added non-slip surface, supplementing the step’s own non-slip properties.

Providing excellent step-edge visibility in light and dark conditions, the flat step nosing is designed to reduce falls and enhance egress speed in all egress situations. The F6B Series flat nosing can also be fitted over steps with an industrial or commercial type carpet (with no underlay) and up to 0.6 inch (6mm) thick.
