Protection and finishing of tiled sidewalks edges: Profilpas solutions
Spring is the suitable period of the year to build or refurbish the outside of a house or a building thanks to the warmer temperature and the brighter and sunnier days. Plastering and painting, the building and refurbishment of balconies and terraces, the creation and renovation of perimetral sidewalks and outdoor floors are just some of the works you can do during the warmer seasons.
Over time, the sidewalk edge – if not accurately finished – can be chipped and ruined due to accidental impacts. That’s why you will have to refurbish it sooner or later. Profilpas offers different solutions for the protection and finishing of tiled sidewalks edges, as a replacement for the traditional L-shaped ceramic pieces. Prostep SAR in silver anodised aluminium and Prostep SIR in stainless steel AISI 304 DIN 1.4301 are two stair nosing profiles that are also suitable for the protection of the sidewalks edges. Thanks to their reversible shape, these two models can be used with four different tile thicknesses (8/15 mm and 10/12,5 mm).
Other two articles that are suitable for this kind of use are Protec CPEV in colour-coated aluminium and Protec CPEI in stainless steel AISI 304 DIN 1.4301. Both are usable with tile or marble thicknesses of 12,5, 15 and 20 mm.
The installation of these metal elements has many advantages. Indeed, besides being easy and quick to lay, these products are a cheap solution if compared to the traditional L-shaped ceramic pieces. Moreover, they make the sidewalk well-finished.
