    I am looking at installing a floating LVP product called Lifeproof distributed by HD. It is 7mm thick.

    The room is the raised part of a split level. On side of the installation is open to the lower level. It will require 12 feet of nosing across the open span.

    I am having a challenge fing nosing mouldings for Planks thst thin. The ones I am finding are made for thicker wood laminate product.

    Any suggestions? Is their manufactured nosing for vinyl plank?

    They make them, for sure, but I’ve yet to find one that seems like it will last. They’re made out of plastic so attaching them is the real problem point.

    Zamma makes all the reducers, nosings and transitions for pretty much everything at HD. They should have an accompanying stair nose for your product. Installing it and making it stay put will be the tricky part. It will look something like this. No doubt it will be a special order item.

    Yes, the VersaEdge stairnose on this page looks to be the best for this application. Click the Solutions button for the PDF instructions.

    I have seen the versatrim pieces, almost forgot about those metal noses. Far superior to plastic in my book.

    The versatrim are in my opinion the best ones to use. Easy to install too. A little silicone and theres double faced tape to hold in place while silcone dries.
    I like to throw some blue painters tape on to hold in place too.
