Quality Assurance and Beyond

Gradus wall protection products are durable and hygienic, helping prevent the build-up of germs and bacteria. They are through-coloured and textured, concealing the effects of impact and abrasions caused by wheeled and pedestrian traffic. This reduces ongoing repair costs and enhances the long-term appearance of interiors.

Gerflor’s resilient flooring is finished with patented and revolutionary surface treatments, such as Evercare™, Protecsol®2 and Neocare™. . These treatments deliver unrivalled stain and chemical resistance (such as iodine and betadine) and also prevent scratching. Moreover, they render the floors up to 100% antimicrobial, contributing to a hygienic environment. For areas with the highest risk, such as operating theatres for organ transplantation, Gerflor’s Ultra Clean offering exceeds cleanliness and disinfection standards. It ensures particle and molecular retention, chemical resistance, and electrostatic resistance.

By choosing Gradus and Gerflor, NHS projects benefit from reduced maintenance costs and long-lasting aesthetics. Having been awarded P23 supplier status, this means that both Gradus and Gerflor products have met the stringent criteria for innovation, sustainability, quality, and value for money. 

With significant healthcare project experience and a full installation service also available on Gradus products, the combined businesses provide expert support and services right through from survey to specification and final installation.

In summary, Gradus and Gerflor’s NHS P23 approval is a testament to its unwavering commitment to elevating healthcare spaces. We look forward to witnessing the positive impact of our solutions in hospitals, clinics, and care facilities across the UK.
