How Much Does Stair Nosing Cost?
During a new construction or the renovation of a commercial building, we often get a common question about the estimated costs of stair nosings.
Stair nosings are a must for all commercial settings. But often stair nosings are ignored or not given enough importance. Most construction projects include stair nosings under floor accessories and hence the budget for stair nosings is restricted.
An important point to note is - stair nosings might be an accessory but they add safety more than design to any staircase. They protect the edges of stairs and increase the stability of the surface of stairs by giving them a stable edge to step onto.They are also a great addition for low-light areas and for people who have visual impairments.
Now coming back to the question- How much does stair nosings cost?
The short answer is – it depends.
There is a relative pricing for stair nosings in the market and the main defining factor is the quality of these stair nosings. The low-quality stair nosings are available for a throwaway price while the high-quality ones are reasonably priced.
The cost of stair nosings in Australia can range from less than $5.00 per lineal metre to over $60.00 per lineal metre depending on where you are buying them from.
Apart from quality, other factors like material and design of stair nosings also define the final pricing. So, if you have a commercial project, it is a good idea to address the following factors before keeping a budget aside for stair nosings. Let’s take a look:
1. The Shape of the Stairs Will Add to the Cost
It is important to consider the shape of stairs before buying or installing stair nosings onto them. Asking these questions can help you determine the same:
2. Different Materials Will Cost Different Amounts
Once you have selected the right profile, you can decide on the material of your stair nosings. A premium supplier like us will offer all kinds of stair nosings in different materials, but everything will be of high-quality.
We have a wide range of stair nosings, including fibreglass reinforced plastic, aluminium with rubber inserts, aluminium with carborundum inserts and corrugated aluminium. But not one size fits all. Therefore, the pricing also varies with the material.
For instance, the starting price for flat aluminium stair tread is $26.40; the corrugated natural aluminium is $29.70, the super anti-slip aluminium with carborundum inserts is $37.95 and fibreglass reinforced plastic stair nosing is around $42.90. All these prices are for 1 lineal metre, which can be further customised to the required length.
3. Specialty Inserts and Trims Will Further Increase the Cost
If you have some specifications like inserts or trimming to add colour and grip, it will increase the cost of your stair nosings.
Generally, these additional features are considered for commercial and public places where you want to increase the visibility and grip of stairs that may otherwise become wet or dirty. You can consider installing anti-slip stair nosings for long-lasting and best results. Read our guide about installation and maintenance tips for stair nosing.
