Stairs connect the various floors on ships and must be safe to use. When designing a stairwell, its important to consider the most suitable flooring. Curious about the best flooring for your project? Our experts can tell you all about it.  

Vinyl-covered stairs  

You can cover stairs with carpeting, but vinyl is also a suitable option. Vinyl is available on a roll of two-meter widths, whichavoids unsightly seams if the stairs are wider. Thinking about using Luxury Vinyl Tiles? We do not recommend these tiles for stairs. They are, however, anexcellent option for public areas, the bridge or cabins 

A firm grip with rubber 

We also recommend a rubber floor covering for stairs. Consider the flooring from the Norament 920 collection, which has no less than five different colors. The advantage of this collection is that its available in ready-made stairtreads, such as the Norament 920 Dust Gray stairtreadThese stair treads have great slip resistant properties. Maybe you have more playful flooring in mind? Or do you want the stairs to stand out with a color that perfectly matches your palette? Consider the Noraplan collectionIt features subtle designs, and you choose the color that best matches your design.   

Vinyl vrubber 

We know what your next question will beWhich material is better? Should you choose vinyl or rubber? Our advice? It doesnt matter which material you choose. Both vinyl and rubber floor coverings are commonly used for stairs. The difference lies in what is desired. Whether you want to create a safety stairwell or a more designable one.
