RC5-E40 Luminescent Carpet Stair Nosing

In all lighting conditions you can rely on the RC5-E40 to provide excellent step edge visibility for your facility’s carpeted stairs. The anodized aluminum is tough enough to withstand heavy foot traffic, without showing any signs of wear and tear. You can rely on the photoluminescent strips to illuminate your luminous egress path when the power fails, and the non-slip grip to enhance step-edge safety. To complete your luminous egress path, rely on Ecoglo®’s photoluminscent stair nosing.

Stair Nosing 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.

For Indoor and Outdoor Use

  • Tested to accelerated UV/weathering exposure, and proven to be highly resistant to the effects of UV/weathering.
  • The loss in performance is less than can be detected by the human eye when subjected to 6000 hours of UV exposure, which is similar to 30 years of outdoor exposure.
  • The polymer used in Ecoglo’s patented process is “long chain” which forms a strong UV resistant product when bonding.
