C5-E20 Photoluminescent Carpet Stair Nosing

The rounded edge of the C5-E20 photoluminescent carpet stair nosing reduces the risk of trips, by creating a smooth step-edge surface. The stark contrast between the non-slip surface and photoluminescent strips increases step-edge visibility, enhancing the safety of any facility. Once the power goes out, this luminous egress path marking product shines, glowing brightly to provide a clear path to the exit.  The durable anodized aluminum is tough enough to with stand the wear and tear of heavy foot traffic.

General Information

  • Install with polyurethane adhesive and mechanical fasteners, or adhesive only.
  • Supplied with pre-drilled countersunk holes. Includes stainless steel fasteners and concrete nylon anchors. Standard location is 2″ from each end and approx. 12″ apart.
  • Available in cut to length sizes. (Tolerance +or- 1/8”) Standard lengths are 8ft and 10ft.
  • Inserts are supplied unattached. Inserts are installed over the mechanical fasteners using a polyurethane adhesive (included). Inserts can be cut using a shear. Aluminum nosings are cut with a saw. Cutting inserts with saw will damage the saw blade.  Inserts are installed with a premium polyurethane adhesive.
  • Weight: 0.44 lbs/ft.


Aluminum Finish

  • Available in Clear Anodized Aluminum Finish.
  • Black, Light Bronze and Dark Bronze Anodize finishes are available at additional cost.
Ecoglo C5-E20 Luminescent Carpet Stair Nosing Dimensions
Engineered for Durability
  • Manufactured using Ecoglo’s patented process which produces the most durable and highly efficient photoluminescent product available.
  • Unique ridges in the photoluminescent strips protect it from most abrasive wear. They provide slip resistance while still allowing the product to be easily cleaned.
  • 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.
  • Tested to accelerated UV/Weathering Exposure, Salt Spray Resistance, Freeze-Thaw Resistance and Washability, Ecoglo® products easily passed with excellent results.
Step Edge Safety
  • The color contrasting the non-slip material with advanced photoluminescent technology provides step edge visibility in all light conditions.
  • The unique ridges in the Ecoglo® photoluminescent strips and the integrated anti-slip contrast strips provide all-weather slip resistance.
