Elegance and robustness are qualities that can sometimes be difficult to combine into a single product.
However, GA’s elegant Premium Stair Nosings with an anodised finish have recently been subjected to a rigorous abrasion resistance assessment with excellent results.
A biomechanical walking machine subjected the tread surface to 1,000,000 abrasion footfalls (500,000 downward movements & 500,000 upwards).
The visual inspection after testing concluded: –
Slight sole marking evident on wear surface, no cracking or damage of stair nosing.
For the purposes of the test a black anodised nosing was selected because, any significant tread wear would be clearly revealed, with the aluminium surface showing through.
After 1,000,000 biomechanical footsteps the black anodised finish remained intact.
Note 1. A copy of the original test report is available upon request.
Note 2. The results can also be considered relevant to GA Premium CMS Nosings, as the modified back edge has no bearing on the wear testing.
Intended for interior applications, GA’s invisibly fixed Premium Stair Nosings/Treads are available with alternative back edge options, making them suitable for different types of flooring.
