Fitting tips for the LVT Full Bull stair nosing strip
- To ensure a safe and smart installation, we recommend a proficient carpet fitter to fit all stair nosings. The NICF (National Institute of Carpet and Floorlayers) can advise on professional fitters in your area.
- The LVT vinyl flooring slides into the nosing channel (see diagram).
- The 5mm option (only) can also be used with carpet tiles, subject to your carpet fitter’s advice.
- Each LVT Nosing Full Bull is pre-drilled along the middle and back edge. Screw in (screws not supplied) and use adhesive for an extra-strong or secondary fix.
- The exact method of fitting will depend on your fitter. Dryback and stick down LVT is typically fitted to 4mm plywood and the design of this nosing accommodates this. However, a full length 2mm spacer is supplied, should a 5.5mm or 6mm ply be used as tread preparation.
- If installing on a top step joining to a landing likewise fitted with LVT (maximum expansion gap allowance of 5mm), avoid 9mm plywood on landings as this may expose the nose.
