Profilpas stair nosing profiles
The stairs must receive specific attention due to their structure both in public places, such as commercial buildings, and in private spaces, such as in a house. In this respect, safety is really important and must be guaranteed through the use of specific elements produced by following shared standards. This need is fully satisfied by some Profilpas stair nosing profiles.
Many of our stair nosing profiles of the lines Prostep and Protect, dedicated to both private and public stairs, follow the regulation approved by the EU DIN 51131 with the laboratory test called BCRA. This method is useful to identify the coefficient of friction to sliding and it defines the values (0,40) that indicate if it is compliant with standard or not.
Stair nosing profiles: Profilpas stair nosing profiles Prostep and Protect
There are different Profilpas stair nosing profiles Prostep and Protect that have been designed by keeping attention to safety.
The stair nosing profiles Prostep SIS and SIX, both in stainless steel, have been created for the realization and protection of stairs in ceramic, marble and stone. These two models are both in compliance with the regulation DIN 51131 regarding non-slip steps: Prostep SIS thanks to its satin tread, while Prostep SIX thanks to the non-slip strips Safety-Walk on the tread. These are two kinds of profiles that are particularly suitable for stairs with high pedestrian traffic.
The stair nosing profiles Prostep SMA in aluminium are compliant with the regulation DIN 51131 regarding non-slip steps thanks to their grooved tread and have been designed for the realization and protection of stairs in ceramic, marble and stone.
The stair nosing profiles Prostep SA, SB and SP are PVC items with an aluminium fixing base that have been designed for the realization and protection of stairs in ceramic, terracotta or stone. The grooved PVC insert is compliant with the regulation DIN 51131 regarding non-slip steps and, in the SA and SB models, it is replaceable with specific spare part in case of wear.
Similarly, for the protection of stairs in wood, ceramic or marble already laid, there are different models. Protect 87, 70, 71, 130 and 131 are profiles in anodised aluminium with grooved tread that are particularly suitable to adapt public spaces to standards. Protect 72, 77, 78, 79, 125, 126 and 128, in anodised aluminium and also suitable for carpets, have a replaceable rubber insert.
Moreover, there are Protect 76, 124, 110, 119, 117 e 80 in anodised aluminium, with non-slip strips Safety-Walk (replaceable) for the protection of stairs in ceramic, marble, wood or carpet already laid.
All these models are compliant with the regulation DIN 51131 regarding non-slip steps.
