F3-G PHOTOLUMINESCENT FLAT STAIR NOSING

The F3-G Photoluminescent Aluminum Flat Stair Nosing provides step edge visibility and enhances egress speed in all light conditions. They can be used on a range of substrates including concrete, timber, tiles, steel, checker plate and thin carpeted stairs. The F3001 and F3003 both have a hard-wearing photoluminescent strip that is of high performance and standard performance, respectively.

Engineered for Durability

  • Manufactured using Ecoglo’s patented process which produces the most durable and highly efficient photoluminescent product available.
  • Unique ridges in the photoluminescent strips protect it from most abrasive wear. They provide slip resistance while still allowing the product to be easily cleaned.

Step Edge Safety

  • The advanced photoluminescent technology provides step edge visibility in al light conditions.
  • The unique ridges in the Ecoglo® photoluminescent strips and the integrated anti-slip contrast strips provide all-weather slip resistance.

Environmentally Friendly

  • LEED points qualified
  • Zero energy consumption
  • Non-Radioactive and Non-toxic
  • Recyclable; No disposable cost

For Indoor Use and Outdoor Use

  • Tested to accelerated UV/weathering exposure, and proven to be highly resistant to the effects of UV/weathering.
  • The loss in performance is less than can be detected by the human eye when subjected to 6000 hours of UV exposure, which is similar to 30 years of outdoor exposure.
  • The polymer used in Ecoglo’s patented process is “long chain” which forms a strong UV resistant product when bonding.
