Eli-Glow Safety Stair Nosing

Virtually indestructible GLOW anti-slip nosings for stairs & steps and a tough cost effective permanent slip resistant solution for step edges – photo luminescent for added safety in the dark

Safety Edge anti-slip stair nosing has been developed as a cost effective, long term solution to the Disability Discrimination Act and in particular, the sections relevant to the partially sighted. The Act requires all stairs be accessible by members of the public, should have a contrasting coloured nosing fitted to the step edges and in addition should provide a slip resistant top surface.

The nosing with chamfered edge can be fitted to almost any step without creating a trip hazard. Even when being fitted to landings and extra deep steps, its unique design provides a secure solution. this product will absorb, retain and release energy in the form of an ambient glow for up to 8hrs in darkness. It will continue this process an infinite amount of times with no loss in performance.

Surface Preparation

Ensure that the area is clean, dry and free from loose material. Safety Edge should be cut in a well ventilated area or close to extraction points. Dust residue can be disposed of using normal waste disposal methods. Any “dished” or damaged surface areas should be patch repaired with Eli-Patch Epoxy Repair Mortar to provide a reasonably flat and consistent surface, GRP Adhesive Mastic will take up minor undulations and imperfections. 

Application

Dry fit all Safety Edge profiles to ensure they fit freely and that they sit flat down on the surface. If required, Safety Edge can be trimmed on site to suit, ideally using a hacksaw or an angle grinder with a 1mm standard metal blade. Please ensure that goggles and gloves are worn at all times when any form of cutting is involved. We recommend a double fixing method for installing the Safety Edge. This consists of an appropriate high strength GRP Adhesive Mastic and GRP screws.  

Mastic: Apply a bead of the GRP Adhesive Mastic around the edge of the underside of the nosings, approx. 25mm in from the edges. Then apply the mastic in a zig zag pattern across the whole length of the nosing. Immediately press the panel firmly to the substrate to ensure adequate transfer of adhesive. Secure with mechanical fixings, as below.

Screw fixing 

Hold the GRP in place and drill holes approximately 50mm in from each edge and thereafter at approximately 300–400mm intervals through the panel and into the substrate. A rawl plug will probably be required in a concrete base. Dependant on the substrate it may be necessary to increase or decrease this spacing.
