M4.125-N30 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-N30 Photoluminescent Tile nosing has been designed specifically for tiled stair installations.  By taking the classic benefits of Ecoglo® step edge definition, slip resistance 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

  • 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.

Step Edge Safety

  • The color contrasting the non-slip material provides step edge visibility.

Environmentally Friendly

  • LEED points qualified
  • Recyclable; No disposable cost

 

  • Available in 8ft lengths.
  • Product is sold with inserts unattached. The aluminum extrusion is cut using a saw with a blade for cutting non-ferrous metals. For best results, we recommend cutting inserts with a shear.
  • Inserts are installed into aluminum nosing using a premium polyurethane adhesive (not included).

Aluminum Finish:

  • Available in Clear Anodized Aluminum Finish.
  • Light Bronze and, Dark Bronze Anodize finishes are available at an additional cost.
