GRADUS Flooring provides a wide range of flooring essentials including entrance matting, wall protection and stair nosings and trims. Many of these flooring products are vital in ensuring a safe environment is in place in both commercial and industrial settings such as offices, hotels, restaurants and hospitals, to name but a few. A selection of GRADUS Flooring products and accessories are available here at Contract Flooring, some of which we will take a closer look at in this article. 

Entrance Matting

Effective entrance matting systems are absolutely essential for providing public safety. An entrance matting system reduces the amount of moisture and dirt that is brought into a building through foot traffic, which significantly helps to reduce the number of slip and fall accidents within properties. It has even been said that up to 90% of slip incidents that occur in public buildings occur on wet floors. Properly fitted entrance matting is the solution to preventing these incidents, as well as providing protection to the flooring of the building. 

Wall Protection

In the same way that entrance matting protects the flooring of a building, certain sections of wall also need a similar level of protection. Wall guards protect walls from damage in areas of a building that are at a high risk of deterioration and damage such as scratches, dents and stains. Wall protection is fitted according to the requirements of the environment. A hospital corridor, for example, will have a very different set of requirements to a retail setting. Wall guards are widely used in the healthcare sector as there is a constant movement of wheelchairs, hospital beds, carts and service trolleys, increasing the risk of damage to the surrounding walls. Properly installed wall protection is a necessary investment for any building and will save on substantial repair costs in the long run.

Stair Nosings and Floor Trims

Stair nosings and floor trims are an important health and safety element of any commercial or industrial building. They significantly help to reduce the risk of slips on stairways and steps, which are features of any building that must be properly protected and guarded. As well as providing protection to the actual edges of the steps, a visual contract to highlight the edge of each step should also be installed to prevent any accidents in dark or dimly lit areas of a building. Although primarily used for health and safety purposes in commercial settings, floor trimmings also protect the edges of floorcoverings from becoming worn or damaged, prolonging the life of the floor or stairway and reducing the need for repairs or up-keeping.

GRADUS stair edgings are offered in a variety of different materials and profile designs to accommodate most step shapes. A choice of gauges is also offered to suit most floorcoverings, while single, double or multiple channel options are available depending on the traffic levels and conditions of the space in question.
