What are Stair Treads and Stair Nosings?

Stair Tread Project Example - Black on Brick StepsStair nosings (also referred to as stair treads) are profiled strips of material that are fitted on the edge of steps, both indoor and outdoor.

Stair nosings should span the full width of the step and should provide an anti slip/grip function to step edges.

They are commonly manufactured from aluminium, aluminium oxide grain surface, rubber or fibre reinforced plastics.

Stair treads should also provide luminance contrast between step edge and surrounding step surfaces. This luminance assists with stair safety for those who are vision impaired, or in poor or low lighting situations.

Step nosings also assist in protecting step edges from damage.

Why do buildings need anti slip Stair Treads and Stair Nosings?

The Building Code of Australia (BCA) and Australian Standards (AS1428.4) now require all new buildings to include slip-resistant stair treads. This is to provide save access and mobility to all users.

According to the Building Code of Australia and Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), it is also mandatory to provide a step insert depth between 50 and 75mm on all steps.

Different types of Stair Tread and Stair Nosings

The best stair nosing for a building or environment will generally be based on the following factors:

  • Level of anti slip required
  • Type of building or environment
  • Frequency of pedestrian traffic
  • Colour of stair steps

  • Budget
