Ecoglo C4-N20 Slip Resistant Carpet Stair Nosing Dimensions
Engineered for Durability
  • The hard-wearing silicon carbide non-slip material is integrally bonded to the aluminum substrate. Thousands of people can walk on it with no signs of wear and tear.
  • The thick anodized finish is aesthetically pleasing, prevents corrosion, and is extremely hard and abrasion resistant. The anodized aluminum surface is harder than pure aluminum, second only to diamonds hard crystalline structure.
Superior Step Edge Safety
  • The color contrasting the non-slip material provides excellent step edge visibility
for Indoor and Outdoor Use
  • The C4-N20 Non-Slip Anodized Carpet Stair Nosing  have been tested to accelerated UV/Weathering Exposure, Salt Spray Resistance, Freeze Thaw Resistance and Washability. Ecoglo® products easily passed with excellent results.
