Ensuring stairway safety
Stairs can be a significant hazard in any building, but with the help of stair nosings, accidents can be dramatically reduced. Stair nosings are designed to improve safety on steps and protect the floor covering, making them an essential solution for any staircase.
At FLR Group, we understand the importance of stair nosings in creating a safe and secure environment for all. That's why we offer a range of high-quality stair nosings that are designed to provide maximum protection while enhancing the aesthetics of your staircase.
The stair nosings installed by our team of expert fitters are designed to provide a secure edge to each step, reducing the risk of slips, trips, and falls. They also protect the flooring material from damage, extending the lifespan of your staircase and reducing the need for costly repairs.
With our extensive selection of stair nosings, you can choose from a variety of colors, materials, and profiles to find the perfect fit for your needs. Our expert team can help you select the right stair nosing for your project, ensuring that you receive a high-quality and effective solution for your staircase.

Stair nosing practicality
Stair nosings protect the main floor covering on the stairs. If you have carpeted stairs, for instance, the very edge of each step can become faded and worn with use, since most people step on the very edge when ascending stairs. Well fitted nosings extend the life of your stair covering.
Why are stair nosings necessary?
Any workplace must adhere to Health and Safety Executive guidance and legislation. If you do not provide a safe environment you can be held liable to pay compensation to anyone injured as a result, and can even face criminal charges.
Stairways are often the site of trips and slips and so must be properly fitted and maintained to minimise the risk of injury. The HSE has lots of advice on making stairways safe. It says that stair nosings must be:
• easy to see
• not slippery.
The HSE advise that you highlight the edge of the step with a highly visible, slip resistant nosing.
The purpose of stair nosings is to ensure that people using the stairs can see the edges properly so that they do not accidentally over- or under-step and fall.
Why choose FLR Group
It is vital that stair nosings are fitted correctly, since their whole purpose of preventing trips and slips would be completely undermined if a person tripped on a nosing that was not securely installed.

Our fitters have been DBS checked to enable them to work in more sensitive settings, such as schools and nursing homes.
