Pro Tiler Tools Launches Stair Nosing Calculator30th July 2018

Pro Tiler Tools are a one-stop shop for everything you need to complete a project, from tools to tiles. Our team of tiling professionals are always on the phone or out and about, providing our customers with in-depth knowledge and expert advice about what they need to get their project done right.

Stair Nosings are found in almost every commercial property in the country. They’re fitted to the edge of stairs to increase visibility of the stairs and increase traction in high traffic areas, protecting users from slipping or tripping on the stairs.

Specifications for stair nosings often come to us from Architects, who have specific needs for the building they are designing for. Perhaps it’s a part of the building with heavy usage, and the surrounding floors are tiled - the stair nosing you choose must be suitable for these requirements as much as any aesthetic needs you have.

We noticed that a lot of our customers were finding stair nosings to be a long task. Before there’s any measuring to be done, the right stair nosing product needs to be chosen. There are a lot of things to consider to get this right, and it always involved a lot of emails and a lot of questions! We thought that there had to be an easier way for our clients to get the perfect product for them, without the hassle.

We wanted to simplify the process for architects, project planners, and everybody else who might need to get their head around stair nosing. That’s where our in-house developer, James, comes in. Usually he’s making sure our site and ecommerce capabilities are running smoothly, but this time he put his talents to finding a way to make the process of ordering stair nosings easier.

Together, we narrowed it down to 4 simple questions that would help get the technical specifications out of the way, so you can choose a product that you know will do the job you need it to do.

  1. What floor covering is being used?

  2. What shape is the step?

  3. What is the level of traffic?

  4. Does the building need to follow equality act guidelines?

Once we’ve eliminated the products that don’t fit your needs, you’re able to pick the colours and styles that you like in the knowledge that it’s going to function well for you. We’re still able to give you the custom service you need, with a selection of profiles and treads, and the option of custom cuts and colours if you need them. With the new calculator, you’re able to label each different tread, and choose between pre-drilled or undrilled so that installation is quick and easy. What’s more, we still offer an in-person measuring service to customers anywhere in the country, if they need a little help getting the perfect amount of tile trim or stair nosing.

The Pro Tiler Tools team began as a family run business, and we still hold those values to a high standard. We want to help our customers get the perfect product for them, and we’ll always go the extra mile to make sure that happens.
