Gradus is best in class with wall protection solutions

Gradus has supplied wall protection systems as part of a refurbishment project at the University of Liverpool’s Veterinary School, based at the Leahurst campus in the Wirral, helping to improve the aesthetics of the building and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.

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 and plays a key role in educating veterinary students, teaching them the very latest theory and techniques.

As part of the building’s refurbishment and upgrade, Gradus specified standard PVC-u corner guards and wall guards to protect both circulation areas as well as individual rooms.

Corners are one of the most vulnerable parts of a building and when left exposed they can suffer damage from a multitude of sources including trolleys and other mobile equipment. The PVC-u corner guards specified will help to reduce ongoing maintenance costs and maintain interiors by absorbing damage and deflecting impact.

The dual height wall guards were selected in a clay colour to contrast with the walls at the veterinary school. This helps to aid navigation whilst modernising the interior and giving the environment a more relaxed, less institutional feel.

Maria Morgan, Product Manager at Gradus, said: “Gradus wall protection systems are 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 facilities interior by preventing damage to wall coverings, paintwork and equipment.” 

Gradus has over 20 years of experience in supplying and fitting wall protection solutions and can manage your next project from specification to installation.
