It was James Joyce the Irish novelist who wrote; “A man’s errors are his portals of discovery.” However errors when buying aluminium profiles and aluminium sheets online can be expensive and are best avoided!

The intended use of the aluminium you are purchasing will determine to a large extent the importance of the care taken in making the right choices.

Stair Nosing: mill profile with anodised tread

 

If the visual appearance of the aluminium is an important element in the decision making process, then please read on.

There are several different factors to take into account, depending on the type of aluminium being purchased. Aluminium angle, channel, flat bars, stair nosings, glazing channels, wallboard trims etc. all come within the aluminium profiles and extrusions category. It is these aluminium products that we are discussing today.

Here at Gooding Aluminium we specialise in supplying aluminium products for the architectural and interiors market. If your aluminium requirements include the look and feel of the metal then consider these points.

According to building regulations stairs, ladders and ramps have to be designed, constructed and installed in a way that is safe for people moving between different levels in or about the building. Gooding Aluminium therefore takes a deeper look at regulations to help ensure specifiers are compliant when installing aluminium stair nosings.

Stair nosings Size

According to Building Regulations (K&M), BS8300 and BS9266, the recommended dimension of a stair nosing should measure between 50-65mm and the riser 30-55mm. This ensures there is a large enough ‘band’ on the nose of the step.

Colour

Building Regs (K&M), BS8300 and BS9266 explain that the colour of the Stair Nosing is required to differ from that of the floor covering.

Every colour has a Light Reflectance Value (LRV) of between 0 (Black) and 100 (White). The documents indicate that there should be at least 30 points difference between the Stair Nosing LRV and that of the floor covering, e.g. If the floor covering has a LRV of 50, then the Stair Nosing should have a LRV of between 0-20 or 80-100. This helps create the ‘ladder effect’.

Slip resistance

The tread material used in a Stair Nosing is important for the safety and performance of a stairway. There are two recommended tests that can be carried out to determine the slip resistance of a flooring material.

The pendulum test (PTV) and a surface micro roughness measurement (Rz). Either of these can be used to give an indication of the slip resistance of a material, although the Pendulum method is limited in so far as it cannot be used to test material on site.

Coverage of the tread material

Looking at the guidance provided for the coverage of the tread material on the top surface of the Stair Nosing, it explains that the tread is the surface of the Stair Nosing which receives ascending or descending footfall. The IP 15/06 states that the Stair Nosing tread material should extend to the front edge to the point at which it meets the vertical face in order to minimise the risk of a slip in descent.
