St Ninian's High School was seeking a wall protection solution, in keeping with its colour scheme, that would protect its circulation areas from damage caused by the constant flow of pupils. Gradus put a dedicated Contracts Team in place to carry out the project from initial survey through to installation.
At the beginning of the job, the Gradus team visited St Ninian’s to carry out a free Building Health Check – a service that Gradus offers to clients across all building sectors. This visit enabled Gradus to determine which products to specify and where best to fit them to get the best protection results. This also ensured that any solution would work within the school’s maintenance budget.
Chris Jackson, Wall Protection Sales Manager at Gradus, comments: “We worked closely with St Ninian’s from the beginning of this project, striving to understand the challenge in order to ensure we delivered a solution that precisely met their needs. This is another great example of our dedicated supply and fit service, which provides peace of mind for customers by ensuring the right solution is delivered on time and within budget.”
Corners are one of the most vulnerable areas in any building, and Gradus’s corner guards are specifically designed to protect them. Their introduction is an effective way to enhance the appearance of the interior in a range of environments. In addition, Gradus corner guards can help to improve hygiene, since damaged corners – which can be difficult to clean effectively – often harbour dirt and bacteria.
Gradus SureProtect Endure provides a durable and protective 2mm layer and is available in 35 standard colours, each designed to complement any interior. Manufactured from impact resistant vinyl, SureProtect Endure is through-coloured and textured, ensuring the visual evidence of any day-to-day impact or abrasion is concealed, saving costs on cleaning and maintenance and improving overall hygiene levels
“We were looking for a way to deal with wear and tear and how to keep the school in pristine condition, particularly after the refurbishment of certain areas. It was clear that a new approach was needed, so we contacted Gradus about their wall protection solutions. We’re delighted with our new wall protection from Gradus. It has added to the attractiveness of the school and at the same time reduces the level of wear and tear, so will also lower our maintenance costs going forward”
