A substantial range of stair nosing or custom-made stair nosing is available to match your Clever floor purchase.
Stairnoses are an important aspect to consider, because:
They protrude a little over the edge of the tread, providing some extra space for users to place their feet
Creates a beautiful feature, a focal point that will continue to impress
Clever Stairnoses are available across all our flooring ranges including Australian Timbers, Engineered Oak, Hybrid, Hydro, Laminate, and Bamboo
Adds value to your home with the seamless colour matched finish of your chosen Clever floors being installed on your internal staircase
Requires minimal cleaning
All Clever Choice products have been independently tested for slip performance. In cases where a slip result does not meet your requirements, Clever Choice does have additional slip-resistant products including slip-rated coatings and slip-resistant tapes available for application on-site.
To install Clever stairnoses, follow the simple process outlined below:
Remove any additional coverings i.e. carpet off the staircase
If the substructure has a bullnose, then you will need to either cut it off or pack out the riser
Clean the substructure free of dirt or debris
Cut and install the floorboards on the riser first, using builders’ adhesive to glue the boards in place. (Underlay is not to be used on the installation of stairs)
Then cut the stair nose to fit over the riser
Cut the floorboards to finish off the rest of the tread using builders’ adhesive to glue the boards in place.
Are your high traffic areas and staircases slip-resistant?
Slip-resistant products may be crucial to ensure the safety of your flooring installation for users. Understanding how slip resistance may affect your choices, starts with understanding slip resistance. We have provided a number of valuable reading materials to help you:
There are a number of products available on the market should you need to improve the slip-resistant ratings for your flooring installation including improving the slip resistance to stair treads, entrance, and exit points.
First, learn what the ‘P’ rating is for your flooring choice. You can discover the slip-resistant ratings by requesting an independent test report from your place of purchase or the flooring supplier directly. Sometimes, many flooring suppliers will make the ‘P’ rating very visible as part of their product specifications. View the technical tab for each Clever range to download the slip test reports for the flooring product you are planning to install.
