You must have your own questions that will need to be answered before making a decision. Here are some additional questions to help you identify which stair nosing is the best fit for your needs.
What shape and size stair nosing will I need?
Stair nosing not only comes in various materials, but is also produced in many different shapes and sizes. Some questions that will help you choose the shape and size you will need are as follows.
What are you planning for the tread part of the step?
Do you plan on adding anything to the tread part of the step? Or do you plan to keep the step as is - concrete or wood with no other product?
If you aren’t using anything on the step other than the concrete or wood finish, you will want to choose a stair nosing that ramps down in the back to a flat surface. If you are installing carpet, VCT, ceramic or any other surface on the tread portion of the step, you will need to make sure that the stair nosing you choose is the same thickness as the flooring material. Or you can choose one design with charmfer which can cover the finished materials.
What is the shape of the front of your step? Is it a straight right angle? Is it curved? Is it raked or slanted back?
Although most steps are a straight right angle, there are also steps that are curved or raked/slanted back on the front. You will need to choose stair nosing that is as close as possible to the shape of your step. This will help ensure a tight fit for your stair nosing, which will result in a safer and more effective installation. Even if your step is a standard straight right angle, there are options available for a more dynamic and decorative finish. We have several different profile shapes that will work well with a straight right angle step.
