    Flooring Specialists

    Hi, I’d like to know what exactly stair nosing is? I saw the term online but not sure what exactly it means.

    "when installing most flooring other than carpet on stairs they are used to finish it up so there isn't a cut edge but there are places that manufacture them to make it look like it's just a plank rather than like a threshold just glued on to hide what is usually a mess"

    "A stair nosing is either metal at rubber or plastic and it covers the front edge of step where the riser meets the tread you neednosing for vynil on stairs as the vynil cannot bend over step do you have to cover that edge. For carpet nosing s are a choice"

    "Stair nosing is what’s placed at the tip of each stair when placing wood flooring on stairs"

    "A stairnosing is an edge strip that protects the edges of the stairs/steps when fitting various floor coverings whether it be vinyl, carpet or woods etc. More often than not they are used in commercial areas however on occasion domestic users opt for this product also. Some even have lights in them to highlight the step edges which are widely used in dark areas such as cinemas.
    Hope this helps 👍"
