We offer our Transit Tread with built-in nosing, step and riser. Colours and designs are also available to match our floor tile range. Transit floor tiles are suitable for use in high-traffic areas and in many situations where safety, decorative value and cleanliness are important. They have been used effectively in applications ranging from mine and heavy industry through medium commercial to light domestic duty.
Transit stair trim
The ideal solution for stair edging for the open side of staircases as well as the closed side (wall). The system, although designed for Transit Tread, can also be used for other stair finishes as well as carpet and vinyl. Transit stair trim fits stair edges that comply with standard building regulations that have 90º steps.

Special materials and skills are not normally needed. A standard acrylic adhesive is trowelled onto the cement base, which should be clean, dry, smooth and free of grease and oils. Transit tiles are laid edge to edge from the centre of the floor outwards. When the tiles have been positioned, a roller is used to level them. A two-component polyurethane adhesive is available for use in conditions of exceptional moisture or heat.
