S2-E40 Photoluminescent Cast In Place Stair Nosing

The S2-E40 installs flush into wet concrete, creating a safer step. The aluminum stair tread protects the edge of your concrete steps from wear and tear, while protecting patrons and residents from slip and trip accidents. The photoluminescent properties of this luminous egress path marking product is unmatched and is guaranteed to light up any egress path for hours. The stark contrast between the non-slip group and photoluminescent strips provides step-edge visibility in any lighting condition.

General Information

  • Install into wet concrete. Used on concrete stairs, concrete-filled steel pan stairs, and pre-cast concrete stairs. Install ½” (25mm) back from the front of the step.
  • Available in cut to length sizes. (Tolerance +or- 1/8”) Standard lengths are 8ft and 10ft.
  • Inserts Attached or Unattached – Inserts unattached can be installed later to ensure the product is clean and has not been damaged during construction. Inserts are installed with a premium polyurethane adhesive.
  • A clear protective tape wraps around the product to keep it clean during installation. To remove, cut the tape along the edges and peel away.
  • Weight: 0.49 lbs/ft.


Aluminum Finish

  • 6063-T5 Mill finish aluminum with a clear acrylic lacquer finish to prevent corrosion.
Ecoglo S2-E40 Series Luminous Cast In Place 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.
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 Use 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.
