Whether it relates to floors, wall or ceiling projects, it is the finishing mouldings, profiles and other accessories that are incorporated that will really let it down the whole project if they are poorly specified.
Floor Transition Profiles are designed to create a safe andattractive join, oftem between 2 types of flooring.
Skirting Boards Choosing the right skirting boards are one area that’s worth particular consideration. Skirting offers a number of functional and aesthetic benefits and is an essential if you have wood floors, as it will hide the unsightly ‘expansion gap’ around the perimeter of the wall (which prevents damage as the timber expands and contracts). Skirting is also good for concealing uneven wet plaster finishes (a common problem in houses both old and new) and will also provide a barrier to ensure the wall doesn’t get scuffed or damaged as you vacuum or mop the floor.
Stair Nosings are generally designed to improve slip resistance on the edge of a step. In commercial situations there must be a distinct colour difference to the flooring to enhance safety.
Ceiling Coving is a where a rounded curved framing detail is located where a wall and ceiling join together. Coving will eliminate those hard 90 degree angles by creating a soft, smooth and rounded finish
Barrier Matting at all entrances should ensure that water and grit is removed from shoes before floors are walked on, protecting the floor and helping to avoid slips.
When we install hardwood floors we generally use matching colour hardwood transition and profiles to match. Some manufacturers supply profiles to perfectly match the stains and finishes of their floors. Sometime we form special wood profiles to perfectly fit a situation. Laminate profiles are available in exact colour matches to laminate floor colours. They are generally designed to incorporate an expansion gap which is required for floating laminate floors.
Most metal profiles are aluminium, either with a natural mill finish, polished or anodised. Chrome, brass and bronze profiles look fabulous but can be expensive.
uPVC transitons and stair nosings are available in numerous colours and colours can be chosen to match with a decor or company theme.
Flexible rubber profiles can be very effective and economical but will need more regular replacement.

1. What floorcovering is being installed?
This will determine the gauge (thickness) of the Stair Nosing t o be specified. A vinyl floorcovering will require a slimmer gauge of Stair Nosing than a carpet or carpet tile.
2. What shape is the step on the stairs?
The shape or profile of the nose of the steps should be identified. The main
choices are Flat (Straight), Rake and Bull Nose.
3. What Stair Nosing tread style is required?
A standard single slip resistant tread is the industry standard all-purpose format used in lightto medium foot traffic conditions.Heavily trafficked stairs with wide goings can be made safer with a wider double tread. An ‘all over tread’ is where the tread material extends across the full upper surface of the Stair Nosing, which provides improved slip-resistant foot contact.
4. What kind of environment is the Stair Nosing going to be installed in?
Morbi nulla tortor, degnissim at node cursus euismod est arcu. Nomad turbina uter vehicula justo magna paetos in accumsan tempus, terminal ullamcorper a quam suscipit.
5. Do the stairs need to meet best practice guidelines?
If you need a Stair Nosing to meet the guidelines laid out in the section ‘Stairway Specification and Building Regulations’ there are specific nosings that meet these guidelines.
