photoluminescent step edge
Step Edge Contrast Strips

In a patented process, custom-blended photoluminescence and non-slip silicon carbide material, in standard and custom colors, are heat-fused to high-grade aluminum strips. The result is a contrast strip that provides high contrast and superior visibility and durability when applied to concrete, steel, aluminum or wood steps.

For the safe way-finding out of public facilities, the emergency egress signs, UL924 exit signs, aisle markers and seat markers incorporate photoluminescent pigments that are bonded to aluminum sheet stock. Designed to be walked on, the signs have a durable anti-graffiti coating to provide continuous, trouble-free performance to last the life of the facility.

The modular design of the stair nosing profiles enable the easy insertion of contrast, non-slip strips or photoluminescent strips in 38.1 mm (1.5 in) and 50.8 mm (2 in) widths. Flat stair nosings are for flat step surfaces, carpet stair nosings are for low and high pile step installations and cast-in-place step inserts are for newly poured concrete steel pan steps.
