    "It depends, if you have carpeting, probably not, if you have "bare" stairs, you can install anti-slip, and if there are panels or wood on them, you must install as a finishing"

    "Stair nosings are used in the front of a step more commonly use in schools hospitals or anywhere where it required in the commercial sector not really in a home environment
    They come in a range of materials from aluminium plastic rubber brass etc
    They are drilled to the front edge of the tread and over hang the top of the riser

    Hope that help

    "This will depend on what you are doing to the stairs if using carpet then stairs should have a nosing but if you are cladding stairs with wood or laminate then you have to get a nosing to match your flooring"

    "Stair nosing is what goes over the lip of the staircase. You can get rubber, metal and even glow in the dark. The flooring meets the nosing at either side."
