GAUGE = PROFILE THICKNESS
The gauge is the thickness of the stair nosing and the floor covering thickness will also determine the gauge of the stair nosing.
Some installations require the stair nosing to be fitted straight on to concrete; in these instances we would recommend our Ramp Edge Profiles.
When fitting thinner floor coverings such as vinyl, lino or lightweight carpets, we would recommend a standard stair nosing with a gauge of 3.5mm.
Lightweight stair nosings can be viewed in the standard nosing section of Products.
When fitting thicker floor covering such as medium weight carpets and heavy duty smooth flooring we would recommend a heavyweight stair nosing with a gauge of 5mm. Heavyweight stair nosings can be viewed in the heavy duty nosing section of Products.
Sometimes the floor covering is too thick for the stair nosing – In these instances the underside of the stair nosing must be packed – Please Contact Us for advice.
