BCC - AS 1428.1 Compliant Nosing

Building Code of Australia (BCA) addresses all the requirements for a building to comply with Australian standards. BCA confers mandatory powers on various Australian Standards to be used in building construction. Any violation of standards will lead to penalties and even declaration of a dwelling as unfit. AS1428.1 – Australian Standard Design for Access and Mobility Part 1 - delineates antislip requirements for stairways and stair nosings.
