Ecoglo’s luminescent stair nosings and photoluminescent strips provide excellent visibility in all lighting conditions, and are completely fail-safe. Patrons can safely, and confidently, exit your building in an emergency, thanks to Ecoglo.
Our section 2014 luminous egress path marking products provide step edge visibility and are available in a wide range of products lines for all different stair finishes. For concrete, metal, carpet, tile and more, Ecoglo luminous stair nosing is the product of choice for major facilities around the world!
Ecoglo’s luminous strips for stairs can be installed on concrete, wood and metal stairs. Using Ecoglo’s recommended premium polyurethane adhesive, these photoluminescent strips can be permanently installed in any stairs that are required by code to have luminous egress path markings. The strength of the adhesive and rigidity of the product results in a safe, reliable, long-lasting installation.
Like Ecoglo’s other luminescent stair nosings, our flat stair nosings enhance egress speeds by providing step edge visibility.
Our luminous stair nosing can be installed on a variety of substrates including concrete, tiles, steel, checker plate, resilient flooring as well as thin carpeted stairs, using adhesive and mechanical fasteners or adhesive only.
Ecoglo’s cast in place stair nosings significantly reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents. Apart from enhancing step edge visibility, this line of luminous stair nosing is installed flush with the concrete surface. By installing these products into wet-set concrete, there is a smooth transition between product and stair, creating a safer step.
Designed with carpeted stairways and facilities in mind, Ecoglo®’s Photoluminescent Carpet Stair Nosing provides fail-safe egress instructions and clear step edge visibility that will make your evacuation protocols more efficient. This makes our carpet stair nosing the ideal product for stairways required by code to have luminous path markings.
Ecoglo’s tile nosings are available in two different sizes, to ensure a luminous stair nosing that works with your property and enhances egress speeds. The M4.10 tile nosing profile is compatible with tiles that are between 3/16” and 11/32” and the M4.125 tile nosing profile is compatible with tiles that are between 3/8” and 1/2”.
This range of Ecoglo’s photoluminescent stair nosing has been expertly engineered to install flush with resilient, or vinyl flooring. Our resilient flooring nosings are the perfect choice for any stairs with thin floor materials.
