Morleys introduces innovative SN20 stair-nosing profile to enhance safety

MORLEYS says it understands and welcomes the need to meet strict standards in an increasingly safety conscious climate. ‘Whether we’re in or out of the EU, the need for flooring solutions will continue to exist. In our ever-growing range of profiles, you’ll always find the answers for a wide range of flooring conundrums.’

Says the company: ‘As flooring trends change, we’re committed and proactive in ensuring our customers always have the correct profile available to them. This is highlighted in the introduction of our two new stair-nosing profiles. We had been receiving increased concerns from customers who were replacing stair-nosings that had been fixed using screws and were worried that further parallel drilling would compromise the structural integrity of the step.

‘As such—and considering the current surge in usage of LVT and Vinyl floorcoverings—we set our design team the task of creating a profile that met the needs of our customers.’

Thus, says Norcros, the SN20 was born – a square-fronted double channel nosing with a ramped back. ‘The double channel provides a longer tread allowing for safer fixing to the step and a greater surface area of anti-slip material. The ramped back prevents several issues arising from the floorcovering shrinking, or damage caused by the permeation of water and other debris in between the flooring and stair-nosing.’

The company adds: ‘The SN20 is a perfect solution in that it fulfils its role from a safety perspective and provides the synergy to maintain the durability of the step whilst offering a smooth and safer transition down to the floorcovering. The SN20 will be followed by the SN26, a rake-back alternative which will be available from August 2019.’

Norcros concludes: ‘Customer feedback is an important feature in our industry, and was integral in the conception, design and subsequent production of these two new sections. Our policy is simple, we strive to work closely with our customers to provide solutions and services, whatever their needs. Whether this be designing new profiles, providing a lightning fast measuring service or aiming to supply your products within 48-hours of your order, Morleys is here to help.’
