M4.10-E40 Photoluminescent Tile Nosing

The Ecoglo® M4.10-E40 Photoluminescent Tile Nosing is specifically designed to provide superior visibility and an anti-slip solution for tiled stair installations. By taking the classic benefits of Ecoglo®’s step edge visibility, slip resistance, and wear resistance and combining it with a refined and durable anodized aluminum profile, the M4 series nosing offers strength, beauty, and longevity to any tiled stair. As such, this aluminum stair nosing will provide your facility with a clear visibility solution that will accelerate egress speed no matter the situation – all at a cost-effective price. Overall, our stair strips will both compliment your building’s design and bring your facility up to code while allowing you to stay within your budget.

The Ecoglo® team is industry-leading amongst photoluminescent signs suppliers in producing visibility solutions that will reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents occurring in your facility. Every Ecoglo® product is manufactured using our patented process to produce incredibly durable and fast-charging photoluminescent technologies that are UV stable. Remember… with Ecoglo®, you’ll never miss a step!

*The M4.10 tile nosing profile is compatible with tiles that are between 3/16″ and 11/32″ (5mm and 8.5mm) thick.

M4.10-E40 Nosing Tiles
Environmentally Friendly Aluminum Stair Nosing
  • Ecoglo® cares about contributing towards a sustainable future, so we designed our metal stair nosing to qualify for LEED Points – making in an energy-efficient product you can trust.
  • Thanks to our stellar photoluminescent technology which draws energy from surrounding lights, this product consumes zero energy
  • Like every other Ecoglo® product, our stair strips are both non-toxic and non-radioactive.
  • We manufacture our stair strips out of recyclable material for your convenience, and the product can easily be disposed of at no additional cost.
Superior Step Edge Safety
  • We made sure the color of our stair strips’ non-slip material contrasts well with the advanced photoluminescent technology in order to provide clear step edge visibility in all light conditions.
  • Our team designed unique ridges into the Ecoglo® photoluminescent strips and the integrated anti-slip contrast strips to provide all-weather slip resistance.
Aluminum Stair Nosing Engineered for Durability
  • We manufacture our stair strips using our patented process to produce the most highly efficient and durable photoluminescent product available.
  • The unique ridges in the photoluminescent strips protect it from most abrasive wear, provide slip resistance, and allow the product to be easily cleaned.
  • The hard-wearing silicon carbide non-slip material is integrally bonded to the aluminum substrate – meaning thousands of people can walk on our aluminum stair nosing without it showing any signs of wear and tear.
  • The Ecoglo® team designed our stair strips’ thick anodized finish to be aesthetically pleasing, prevent corrosion, and be extremely hard and abrasion-resistant. The anodized aluminum surface is harder than pure aluminum – ranking second only to the hard-crystalline structure of diamond.
Stair Strips for Indoor and Outdoor Use
  • We tested our aluminum tread nosing under accelerated UV/weathering exposure, during which it has proven to be highly resistant to the effects of UV/weathering, making it the best choice for both indoor or outdoor use.
  • When subjected to the equivalent of 30 years of outdoor exposure – 6,000 hours of UV exposure – our stair strips experience a loss in performance that is less than can be detected by the human eye.
  • We use a “long chain” polymer in Ecoglo®’s patented process to form a strong UV resistant product when bonding.

General Information

  • This aluminum stair nosing is available in a length of 8ft.
  • This product is sold with inserts unattached. The aluminum extrusion should be cut with a blade designed for cutting non-ferrous metals. For the best results, we recommend cutting inserts with a shear.
  • Inserts are installed into aluminum nosing using a premium polyurethane adhesive (not included).

Aluminum Finish:
  • Our aluminum nosing is available in a Clear Anodized Finish
  • Dark Bronze and Light Bronze Anodized finishes are available at an additional cost.
