F8-E40 Photoluminescent flat Stair Nosing

Ecoglo®’s high performance F8-E40 Photoluminescent Anodized Flat Stair Nosing enhances step edge visibility and enhances egress speeds in all lighting conditions. Our expertly engineered photoluminescent strip is integrally bonded into the aluminum stair nosing, along with a non-slip grip to provide stairway safety, while also providing a stark color contrast to enhance step edge visibility. After gaining a charge from a natural or artificial light source, this luminous egress path marking product cuts through smoke and shadows to provide an easily visible source of egress lighting. To best meet you project needs, this metal stair nosing can easily and securely be installed on a number of substrates, including concrete, timber, tiles, steel, checker plate and thin carpeted stairs.

Not only do our products meet code compliance but exceed all luminous egress path marking requirements set out in local and international building, fire and life safety codes. Ecoglo®’s industry leading, cost-effective products make it easier than ever to bring your facility up to code.

Ecoglo F8-E40 luminescent Flat Stair Nosing Dimensions
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.
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.
