In relation to the updated standard AS 1428.1-2009, these profiles, when installed correctly, meet the width and depth requirements set out in this standard. It should be noted however that when an aluminium or brass nosing with a deeper bullnose is required a number of certifiers have claimed that as the vertical face strip of the nosing is a different colour this is acceptable. It is good practice to clarify with your certifier before ordering as standards are often open to interpretation and opinions may differ.
