Gradus has supplied a variety of wall protection systems as part of a refurbishment project at the University of Liverpool’s Small Animal Teaching Hospital based at the Leahurst Campus in the Wirral.
The Small Animal Teaching Hospital is part of the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Veterinary Science and employs over 350 staff, including over 100 veterinary surgeons and 280 students. The facility is one of the largest and most innovative veterinary hospitals in Europe, teaching students the very latest theory and techniques.
As part of the refurbishment of the building, keeping future maintenance costs low was a key consideration. Corners tend to be one of the most vulnerable parts of the building and, when left exposed, are often damaged from everyday wheeled and pedestrian traffic. Gradus’ PVC-u corner guards were specified to help reduce maintenance costs and maintain the interior appearance of the hospital.
Gradus wall guards were selected to offer impact protection against damage caused from both pedestrian and wheeled traffic, such as trolleys, carts and other mobile equipment. Placing the wall guards at two levels offers added protection from both direct and indirect impact damage and scuffs.
Maria Morgan, Product Manager at Gradus, said: "Gradus has over 20 years experience designing and manufacturing wall protection systems ideal for use in busy working environments such as The Small Animal Teaching Hospital. Our corner and wall guards will help to minimise maintenance costs and prolong the lifespan of the hospital’s interior by preventing future damage to wall coverings, paintwork and equipment".
