M4.125-E30 PHOTOLUMINESCENT TILE NOSING

*The M4.125 tile nosing profile is compatible with tiles that are between 3/8″ and 1/2″ (9mm and 12.5mm) thick.

The M4.125-E30 Photoluminescent Tile nosing has been designed specifically for tiled stair installations.  By taking the classic benefits of Ecoglo® step edge definition, slip resistance, all-light visibility and wear resistance and combining it  with a refined and durable anodized aluminum profile, the M4 series nosing offers strength, beauty and peace of mind to any tiled stair.

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.

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.

Environmentally Friendly

  • LEED points qualified
  • Zero energy consumption
  • Non-Radioactive and Non-toxic
  • Recyclable; No disposable cost

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.
