Nosings are manufactured to the same thickness as the installed flooring and can have many of the same design highlights as a full tread.


Nosings are manufactured in three standard widths, up to 4” wide, but can be custom made to accommodate specific design or installation requirements.
A ‘heavy bullnose’ nosing has a facing edge that is deeper than a regular nosing – up to 3,1/4” and looking up the staircase, gives the impression of a solid thick piece of timber, enhancing its look. This can also be achieved with an engineered flooring that is below ¾” where the look of a deeper overhang is preferred, or is a design requirement.

​On those rare occasions where an exact match is imperative i.e. bamboo flooring,  we can, under certain conditions being met manufacture nosings from the supplied boards

Standard nosings are manufactured with a rounded bullnose on the leading edge.

The rounded bullnose can be substituted for a modern, square bullnose & the radius can be adjusted to change the look from modern contemporary, to an ultra modern look either on their own or to match an installed set of stair treads. 

A custom bullnose can be added for a truly unique look to your home.

Flush nosings butt up square to the flooring; overlap nosings can be used when a floating floor is used, with the nosing overlapping the installed flooring to hold it down.

Bowed nosings can add a touch of depth and design element to the flooring. Being straight on the rear makes for an easy install, and butts up square & flush to the flooring. 

A laminated curved nosing can offer an aesthetic look to a step-down area; a sunken living room for example.

A curve is desirable when the alternative of smaller, straight nosing pieces joined together look exactly that - imitating a curved piece.
Curved nosings have the added advantage of the grain following the curve, highlighting the accent of the room or staircase without the multiple joints of smaller straight pieces.
