F5B-E20 Photoluminescent flat Stair Nosing

Ecoglo®’s incredibly durable F5B-E20 Photoluminescent Anodized Flat Stair Nosing can be installed on a wide range of substrates to best meet your project needs. This luminous egress path marking product can be installed on concrete, timber, tiles, steel, checker plate and thin carpet. The stark color contrast between the photoluminescent strip and the non-slip grip improve step-edge visibility in all lighting conditions. Our patented manufacturing process brings you the best in photoluminescent technology. After simply gaining a charge from either a natural or artificial light source, the photoluminescent strip brightly cuts through smoke and shadows to safely guide occupants to the exit discharge. The sleek aluminum profile adds a modern look to your building, without distracting from the design.

Ecoglo® products are completely non-toxic and non-radioactive, as well as being one of the most environmentally green products on the market. Our photoluminescent egress path marking products not only meet local and international building codes, but exceed the requirements for luminous egress.

Ecoglo F5B-E20 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 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.
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.
