What is QNose?
QNose is a square edged, flush stair nose for use on stair’s edge instead of an overlap or flush mount stair nose. QNose is made from flooring material for consistent visual.
After developing the technique to make a QNose out of a single piece of hardwood, this product has become one of the fastest growing solutions produced for stair parts. Customers have been using it in single family homes, apartments, town homes and various other applications that requires hardwood to tie into stair parts.
