Humber Enterprise Park is situated on a site of 79 acres and comprises high-grade production/storage units, offices and business space, offering incubator and grow-on space for young businesses, as well as large stand-alone facilities for more established organisations.

Gradus supplied their market leading XT stair edging profiles to the project, which were installed using Gradus Grip, a solvent free rapid curing flexible adhesive that is suitable for bonding stair edgings to most surfaces. Gradus Grip is a more cost effective solution than traditional fixings, as it removes the need for drilling and screwing, so less time is needed to fix each stair edging. It also offers peace of mind, as Gradus offer a 10-year warranty when Gradus Grip and Gradus stair edgings are used together,

Gradus also supplied a range of carpet tiles, including Lafite Connect Space, installed in all office areas and Streetwise installed to all corridors and staircases, as well as Esplanade 1000 primary barrier matting to the buildings’ entrances. Streetwise carpet tiles feature an attractive textured loop pile design and are designed to be installed randomly offering creativity and versatility, whilst the Lafite Connect carpet tile range features a choice of complementary designs that can work together to create interesting and contemporary floor schemes.

Gradus Esplanade 1000 primary barrier matting is constructed from 100% solution dyed nylon wipers, which are supported with an aluminium base.  The nylon wipers provide both soil and moisture retention properties helping to reduce the amount of dirt and moisture tracked through the building.

Nic Clawson, Flooring Contractor at Sandhurst Flooring, said: “We used Gradus Grip for fixing down the stair edgings, which was much easier to apply compared to mechanical fixing and we only required a small number of tools to complete the job.

‘The adhesive set quickly, so we were able to complete the installation with minimal disruption to staircases. Also, as there is no need for screw head cover plugs in the insert where the screws would usually go, so the installation was more aesthetically pleasing.”

Wayne Andrews, Area Sales Manager at Gradus, said: “Our range of carpet tiles offer versatility and are ideal for use within commercial office environments. Our solutions were used at Humber Enterprise Park to enhance the interior by customising the floor to create a bespoke design scheme.”

Matt Harriman at Gent Visick, said: “Gradus has provided a comprehensive range of high quality carpet tiles and flooring accessories, helping us create an attractive and practical interior.

“We specified Gradus due to the company’s proven track record in successfully supplying products for commercial facilities.”

Developed in line with the guidance in The Building Regulations 2010: Approved Document M (ADM), the XT range of stair edgings features an extended insert design for optimum foot contact and provides additional slip resistance around the leading edge of the stair.  The insert colour chosen helps to define the step edge by providing a suitable colour contrast with the carpet, in line with BS8300:2009+A1:2010 and Approved Documents M (ADM) and K (ADK).
