Gradus makes the grade for interior solutions at Hull Uni

Gradus makes the grade for interior solutions at Hull Uni

Gradus supplied and fitted a range of wall protection systems for the new £28 million Health Campus development at Hull University.

The systems include Bed Head Protectors, High Impact and Standard PVCu Corner Guards and dual height Wall Guards. The Bed Head Protectors have been specified to provide maximum protection against damage caused by frequently moved beds. They are a designed to help prevent damage to walls and wall mounted equipment from beds that are continuously moved up and down as well as in and out.

Corner guards and dual height wall guards were installed to protect circulation areas from scuffs and scrapes and aid navigation for building users.

The training facility in the Allam Building will experience heavy impact and abrasion caused by beds, trolleys and medical equipment. As a result, a wall protection package that would offer a high level of protection without detracting from the interior design was needed.

The new wall protection profiles are proving immensely popular and the colour options are perfect for contemporary interiors in healthcare and education settings such as this. The wall protection products specified for the University of Hull work together to reduce ongoing repair and maintenance costs, and will also protect the appearance of the building’s interior in the long-term.

Gradus ADXT2 aluminium XT stair edgings and Esplanade 5000HD primary barrier matting were also specified for the project. Esplanade 5000HD was installed at the entry point of the Allam Building to minimise the amount of dirt and debris tracked into the facility. This not only enhances the buildings safety, but also improves the lifecycle of surrounding floor coverings.

Gradus’ market-leading XT range of stair edgings feature an insert that extends around the leading edge of the profile to increase underfoot contact with the slip-resistant element of the stair edging, reducing the risk of slips, trips and falls on stairs.
