AS1428.1 Compliance



Australian standard AS1428.1-2009 "Design for access and mobility Part 1: General requirements for access-New building work", section 11.1 “Stair Construction”, is one part of a broader standard used to increase accessibility for people with vision impairments. If your current project is required to adhere to this standard, we can provide compliant stair nosings. Please note that this page is not comprehensive and is only intended to give a preliminary overview of the standard and how it applies to stair nosings.


Some of the requirements of this standard are:

  • The contrast strip needs to have at least 30% luminance contrast with its background

  • The contrast strip needs to be between 50mm and 75mm wide

  • The contrast strip can be set no more than 15mm back from the front of the step

  • If the contrast strip is against the front of the step; it must have a vertical height of no more than 10mm

  • The stair nosing cannot project beyond the face of the riser

  • The stair riser must be opaque
