Stairs as Art
Have you ever thought that a set of stairs could be a work of art? Well they can be, especially if they represent music and culture at a nightclub or restaurant.
One of our customers who is a mosaic artist called us about a recent project that they are working on. It is a set of mosaic tiles that leads up to a second floor business. It is called Tropicalia and represents colorful Brazilian music and culture.
Edges of Stairs Needed Protection from Wear and Tear
The mosaic tiles are attached to the front of the stair and creates a colorful pattern of artwork. However, the edges of the mosaic are delicate and the artist would like to protect them from being worn off over time after many customers tread on them.
Nosings are Perfect for Protecting Edges of Stairs and for Safety
Here is where HandiTread’s nosings come in. Our artist customer ordered a dozen or so treads for his set of stairs to protect the edges. HandiTreads nosings will not only protect the artwork, but will also add a safety element to the surface. Our raised button design brings a non slip feature to the surface of the tread. With an assortment of colors to choose from, our mosaic artist can select a color that blends well with his design.
Whether it be for protecting the edge of a stair or for non slip safety, HandiTreads nosings are great for both reasons. Contact Handi-Ramp for more information about HandiTreads at 800-876-RAMP (7267). Like us on Facebook! Share our story on Google+!
