Cast In Place Stair Nosings

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.
