Asbra Safety Stair Treads and Nosings

product-range-hero.jpg

Latham manufactures and supplies a wide range of non-slip and anti-slip stair tread nosings

Stair treads or nosings are made from non-slip silicon carbide or other special non-slip materials to help ensure pedestrian safety. What Latham refers to as stair tread nosings are sometimes also referred to as Latham treads, step treads, anti-slip nosings, slip resistant nosings, or step nosings. Essentially they all have the same function, which is to improve visual contrast & grip on stairways to promote pedestrian and public safety.

Latham Asbraloy Aluminium and Asbrabronz Solid Brass safety stair tread nosings are suitable for both internal and external applications. We manufacture a wide range of profiles to be architecturally appealing for various applications. These profiles also are designed to accommodate the requirements of different Australian and international standards and building codes.


What Are Asbra Safety Nosing Stair Treads Used For?

Anti-slip nosings for stairs and other constructed surfaces such as platforms, walkways, and ramps, reduce the risk of pedestrian slips and falls and enhance public safety. For building owners, this helps reduce the potential for litigation as a result of a slip or fall. Non-slip stair treads in residential and commercial properties are therefore an important part of meeting Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) requirements. They also protect underlying floor surfaces from costly damage through continual wear and tear.

According to industry standards set out by the Building Code of Australia, non-slip and non-skid surfaces must be installed on all pedestrian ramps, stairs, and landings, particularly in areas that receive heavy foot traffic or where emergency access may be required. Slip resistant tread nosings are also critical to meeting disability standards for safe access to premises for the visually impaired or disabled.
