Aluminium XT retains all the existing benefits of the XT with the addition of new features that offer improved performance.
The XT range of stair edgings offers the ultimate solution in reducing slips, trips and falls on stairs and supports the recommendations in the latest building legislation and standards.
The range features an extended insert design that wraps around the leading edge of the step to ensure that foot contact is always made with the slip-resistant element of the stair edging, providing maximum safety underfoot and minimising the risk of slip.
In addition, XT aluminium profiles feature a unique locking mechanism that secures the slip-resistant insert in place on both the tread and riser. This removes the need for an adhesive bond between insert and channel and increases the resistance to moisture ingress, making the profiles ideal for use in areas subject to more frequent cleaning e.g. healthcare and education environments.
They have also improved the range of inserts designed for use in areas where the stair edgings may become wet e.g. stairs close to entrances or where safety flooring is used. Xtra-grip and Xtra-grip Plus inserts provide increased surface roughness and, when combined with the new XT profiles, offers one of the most robust stair edging solutions on the market.
For the complete solution, XT stair edgings can be installed with Gradus Grip ultra-strong stair edging adhesive, eliminating the need for mechanical fixings and screw head cover plugs, providing a hygienic, aesthetic solution.
BIM objects are available for the complete range of XT stair edgings, including PVC-u Hardnose.
