Interior & Exterior Application

All special application nosings offer a way of taking positive steps to minimise the risk of accident and injury, in one of the most obvious areas in which such risks occur. 

The range of Latham Special Application Safety Stair Tread Nosings have been developed to fill the need for a safety nosing that is not only practical, but also an attractive way of enhancing visibility on the leading edge of stairs and steps. 



Safety Yellow Visual Bars are available in all Asbraloy and Asbrabronz stair tread sections including Repair Tread System Type EHD (1 visual bar only). All other Asbraloy and Asbrabronz stair tread sections are available with one or two safety yellow visual bars or with full width safety yellow infill on request (specify 1SYVB for 1 safety yellow visual bar, specify 2SYVB for 2 safety yellow visual bars or specify full width safety yellow infill).

Optional secondary infill colours 

img-tread-syvbvisual-1.jpgOn request optional Supagrit infill colours are available for the secondary part of tread i.e. tread that is not safety yellow. It is important when specifying that you indicate the colour required for secondary tread (sparkling black standard) and that you ensure this colour is compatible with surroundings and does not reduce the safety yellow visual effect. Standard infill colour is sparkling black and will be supplied if infill colours are not requested. All stair treads should be maintained clean for visual effect.
