No matter your setting, our QA9 Stair nosing Profile is an effective solution for your properties accessibility. It has been manufactured here in the UK, using heavy-duty aluminium. Hand-in-hand, this reduces the risk of rust while also offering the strength needed to withstand high traffic settings. The unique design is one born from the needs of our customers - designed to work on stairs and landings effectively. It pairs with our unique CARBIGRIP carborundum anti-slip infill for even further stability at every step. Our profiles are highly slip-resistant and work in both internal and external environments. They are suitable in wet, dry and greasy settings too.

How to install the QA9 profile
Our profiles are the ideal choice for both commercial and industrial environments. They can be installed quickly and effectively, helping you to minimise slip hazards around your property. With all installations, the substrate should be sound and reasonably level. If you require remedial work, this must be done before fitting your profile or profiles.
Our Carbigrip-filled profile is heavy-duty. For this reason, it should always be screw fixed into place. We also recommend that you bed the profile/s with a suitable adhesive to reduce or remove the potential for rattling. This also provides additional stability and safety.
Use No.8 (M5) wood screws with a countersunk head to fit the standard pre-drilled holes in our profiles. We recommend you always use stainless steel screws for this purpose. Or, bolts/nuts if you are fixing your profile to a steel plate.
The adhesive used should always be suitable for external use. It should be used in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations. When fixing with adhesive only, use a product with high-strength mechanical properties that have been specifically designed for structural bonding. Therefore, cartridge adhesives used for fixing decorative nosings such as Gripfill or F32 are not recommended for this purpose.
