Gradus improves interiors at Bitterne Park School

Gradus supplied and fitted their SureProtect Pure Wall Cladding System in white and Stainless Steel Corner Guards Bitterne Park School, a secondary school in Southampton.

Over the next five years the school is expected to introduce an additional 300 pupils. As a result, the school has been rebuilt on the same site to increase the size of its classrooms and communal areas, as well as modernising the building and its facilities.

The schools’ transformation will provide a new three and a half storey teaching block, comprising of 80 new teaching classrooms; a purpose-built assembly hall with seating for 360 students, a new dining space with fully fitted kitchen and a large Learning Resource Centre.

Gradus’ SureProtect Pure in white and Stainless Steel Corner Guards to enhance and protect the new schools interiors from damage. In areas of the school where cleanliness is key, such as the school kitchen, canteens and the food technology classrooms, SureProtect Pureâ wall cladding was installed. This hygienic option creates an impermeable barrier to moisture and bacteria. Tested to meet the requirements of EN 22196:2011 and EN ISO 846:1997 part A the smooth, easy to clean surface is an ideal alternative to ceramic tiles as it removes the need for grout, which can harbour bacteria.

As school environments are subject to scuffs and scrapes from tables and chairs, as well as students with school bags leaning against walls, surface mount Stainless Steel Corner Guards were also installed throughout the building to provide a hygienic durable protection against impact and abrasion.

The corner guards offer a robust solution to weakened areas of the building and are ideal for reducing maintenance costs and maintaining interiors.
