Frontier DUO, strong and simple yet beautifully effective. Suitable for all types of flooring, regardless of thickness.
Frontier DUO stair nosing sections are incredibly simple to use and provide a fantastic finish with all types of flooring. DUO is ideally suited to hardwood flooring types, providing space in the front section of the profile for a riser to be inserted. This design feature enables fixings and screw heads to be hidden away behind the riser section giving a clean and neat finish. In addition, DUO is an excellent option for places where two materials meet on a top step. Often timber floors meet carpeted staircases and DUO provides the perfect hassle free solution.
Available in numerous anodised finishes to complement or contrast hardwood, carpet, ceramics & natural flooring types.

The Aluminium nosing solution for your stair case. Multiple uses, multiple finishes, multiple lengths.
What can profiles do for your floor?
Enhance the whole look and feel of your floor. Profiles are often the last thought on the mind of the person who sells or lays the floor but without due care and consideration for what is needed, the floor can look poorly finished. Even without the importance of the aesthetic aspect, profiles play an important roll in the fitting and longevity of the floor, in-particular, solid and engineered wood floors. Profiles provide cover for necessary expansion gaps both around the perimeter of rooms and across door thresholds. Without the necessary expansion, hardwood flooring will bow, dish or push bricks out of walls.
With the correctly specified profiles, perimeter expansion and door threshold covers vanish to become part of the floor.
Floor PreperationFor a flawless finish, preparation is the key. Luckily with Parallel profiles, preparation is kept to the bare minimum. Simply ensure that the substrate floor is clean and relatively level.
Not quite what you need?Haven’t found quite what you are looking for? No problem, just give us a call. Parallel are able to machine bespoke profiles to whatever specification you require.
FixingParallel’s unique fixing system makes installation a breeze. Simply fix the base section to the substrate floor with either an adhesive or screws and then tap the top profile into place with a rubber mallet. The profile will self level in the height adjustable base system giving the perfect finish.
Complementary ExtrasIn addition to profiles to cover gaps between different flooring types or through doorways, Parallel also manufactures skirting, architrave, scotia, quadrant, stairnosing, pipe covers/collars and more from the same high quality hardwoods. This enables continuity throughout the room or building.
Leading the way with an uncompromising attitude to product design and customer service, what is run of the mill to us is impossible to others.
Nothing quite spoils the stunning Aluminium finish of stair nosing sections like screw heads. With the Frontier DUO range, the screws are concealed by the riser section because of a unique fixing system. Once the riser is inserted into the space in the nose of the section, all that is visible is the small Aluminium drop and top pieces. This provides an incredibly clean and unobtrusive look for all staircases, modern or old.
In addition to the fixing system, DUO is milled from incredibly strong Aluminium with a thickness much greater than many other market alternatives. The anodising procedure applied to the surface further increases strength and durability, so, as is the case with the majority of Parallel profiles, you may end up replacing the floor before the nosing!
Send us your board and we will provide profiles to match it! Using our comprehensive colour database, there are very few finishes we are unable complement.
RAL POWDER COATING
On those special occasions where even our standard colours aren’t what are required, we can offer powder coating of our Aluminium profiles. Achieved by electrically charging the materials to encourage the colour to ‘stick’, powder coating offers a full spectrum of standardised colours to pick from.
Minimal preparation, beautiful finish. Fix & forget, walk away without worry of having to return to replace or repair Parallel products.
Tools for the job;
- Hand Saw
- Drill & Plugs
- High-Grab Adhesive
The Frontier DUO profiles are quick and simple to fit, whether you are a seasoned carpenter or a DIY beginner. Follow the steps below, ensuring that you start with a clean and clear environment and the correct profile has been selected;
1. Trim down the profile to the correct length (measure twice cut once!). Drill holes through into the face of the step for screws to fix into.
2. Screw and glue the nosing into place with the back edge of the profile overlapping the tread board on the stair.
3. Allow the adhesive to cure if used. Once the nosing is securley fitted, place the riser material up into the front of the profile in the designated area. This will conceal the screw fixings and provide a neat and attractive finish.
