Why is stair nosing installation important?

You may think that stair nosing installation is just a question of aesthetics, because in a way it is, but considering that over 100,000 injuries are reported every year on non-domestic stairs it starts to look necessary. Some of those accidents can have severe consequences which you can reduce by using stair nosings.

Stair nosing also provides a visual contrast to highlight the edge of the step making people aware of the distance between each step preventing possible trips.
