Our heavy-duty stair tread profiles are an in-house designed and manufactured solution to your property’s anti-slip needs. They have a tailored design that fits perfectly on both stair and landing surfaces, with the strength to withstand high-traffic environments. We have paired it with our unique CARBIGRIP carborundum anti-slip infill. Not only does this improve the slip-resistance of the entire product, but it also increases definition and makes them an ideal option for busy settings.

How to install the QA10 Profile
We design and manufacture our QA10 profile for industrial and commercial use. For this reason, we recommend you start with a sound and reasonably level substrate. If any remedial work is required, this should be done before installing the profile. As our Carbigrip-filled profile is heavy-duty, we recommend they be screw-fixed. We also recommend that they are bedded with a suitable adhesive to remove or reduce the potential for rattling. In addition, this ensures a safe and stable installation.
We recommend using No.8 (M5) wood screws with a countersunk head design. These will best suit the standard pre-drilled holes found on our profiles. Always use stainless steel screws during installation, or bolts/nuts when fixing to a steel plate.
When using a bedding adhesive, ensure it is suitable for external use. All adhesives should be used in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. In settings where our profiles are to be fitted with adhesive only, we recommend using a product with high-strength mechanical properties that is specifically designed for structural bonding. Cartridge adhesives normally used for fixing decorative nosings, such as Gripfill or F32 are not recommended for this purpose. See our 'related products' for suitable brands.
