Gradus supplies University of Central Lancashire

Gradus supplies University of Central Lancashire

The University of Central Lancashire’s Darwin Building has a 450 capacity lecture theatre that is predominantly used by the School of Psychology, while the foyer area is sometimes used as an exhibition area for conferences.

Gradus products were supplied throughout the Darwin Building. GXT51 stair edgings with interior inserts in Snowdrift (white) were installed on the main staircase. Boulevard 6000 barrier matting was also installed at the main entrance of the building.

GXT51 is a rake back, single channel stair nosing profile with a 5mm gauge, and is ideal for use with carpet or resilient flooring with bevelled underlay in heavy use areas. The white inserts also provide a solid band of colour that delivers visual contrast with the surrounding flooring and the recommended 30 points difference in Light Reflectance Value (LRV), in line with guidelines in BS8300:2009+A1:2010 and Approved Document M of The Buildings Regulation 2000. This helps to reduce the risk of slips, trips and falls for both students and staff.

Boulevard 6000 barrier matting incorporates a heavy scraper for optimum dirt removal to significantly reduce the amount of dirt and moisture tracked into a building. It also has a patterned design to disguise the effects of soiling.

Products Specified:
• GXT51 - Snowdrift
• Boulevard 6000 - Nightfall
