Gradus Introduces New Accessories Specification Guide

01 July 2009

Contract interiors specialist Gradus has introduced a new accessories guide, designed to help specifiers and architects select stair edgings, floor trims and skirting products, in line with the latest visual contrast and accessibility standards.

The easy-to-use guide contains full details of Gradus’ extensive accessories portfolio, including the new range of XT Hardnose stair edgings, which offer superior protection against the risk of slips, trips and falls. Information is also included on CXT aluminium stair edgings for use on ceramic, stone and marble floors, as well as pvc and metal skirtings, step and aisle lighting, transition strips and barrier matting.

The 176-page brochure also provides detailed guidance on meeting the requirements of the new BS8300:2009 accessible building design standard, as well as the latest advice on measuring Light Reflectance Values (LRVs) to achieve visual contrast, as required by BS8493:2008.

Lynette Bowden, Group Marketing Manager for Gradus, comments: “This latest version of our specification guide has been updated in line with the recent legislative changes that have impacted quite significantly on the selection of stair edgings and other flooring accessories. By using the accessories guide, specifiers can have peace of mind that they are selecting the right products to meet the latest standards.”
