F5101 Photoluminescent flat Stair Nosing

The F5101 Photluminescent Flat Stair Nosing features Ecoglo®’s expertly engineered photoluminescent strip to increase step-edge visibility and enhance egress speeds in all lighting conditions. Our industry-leading photoluminescent technology has been integrally bonded into the aluminum stair nosing in order to enhance longevity and ensure durability. Thanks to our patented manufacturing process, after gaining a full charge from either a natural or artificial light source, our photoluminescent products provide egress lighting for hours after the power has failed.

Our photoluminescent aluminum stair nosings not only meet code, but exceed local and international building, fire and life safety codes.  Enhance stairway safety in all lighting conditions, thanks to Ecoglo®.

Ecoglo F5101 luminescent Flat Stair Nosing Dimensions
Metal 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 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 unique ridges in the Ecoglo® photoluminescent strips and ridges in the aluminum stair nosing provide all-weather slip resistance.
Stair Covers 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.
