LIVERPOOL LIBRARY Contract interiors specialist, Gradus, has supplied wall protection systems, stair edgings and entrance matting to Liverpool Library as part of a £50million refurbishment project.

Liverpool’s Central Library reopened in May following a two-year refurbishment project that saw the existing Brown Library and its extension demolished and a new five-storey library built in its place.

The wall and corner guards were installed to protect the surfaces from damage caused by trolleys, which are used on a daily basis to transfer books around the new library. The wall protection systems also

help to reduce maintenance costs by absorbing impact and deflecting moving trolleys in areas that are subject to heavier trolley and pedestrian traffic.

As part of the refurbishment, Gradus also supplied its Elite aluminium stair edgings to the impressive staircases that run throughout the centre of the new library, as well as Topguard entrance matting for the library’s new entrances.

Susan Griffin, Facilities Manager for Liverpool Central Library, said: “Gradus’ wall protection systems not only complement the library’s interior, but are also

durable enough to help reduce ongoing repair and maintenance costs. We are also incredibly pleased with the stair edgings and entrance matting from Gradus, as they are both ideal for heavy traffic areas and help to protect against slips and trips.”

Chloe Taylor, Product Manager for Gradus, added: “We are pleased to be involved with such a prestigious development as the £50million refurbishment of Liverpool Library. Thanks to our wealth of experience, we were able to supply products that are fit for purpose, which reduce maintenance costs and help prevent slip and trip accidents.”

As such, the company has launched a new range of large planks in its hard- wearing Transform range.

David Bigland, MD of Moduleo UK and Eire commented: “Our new large planks create the illusion of greater space in any room whilst adding to the natural appearance of our LVT flooring. The size of these new planks means that we don’t cut up the grain and are therefore able to showcase the authentic finish of our products.”

vinyl flooring manufacturer Moduleo has seen a surge of interest in this new trend.

The large plank from Moduleo is now available in four of the company’s most popular finishes: Verdon Oak, Classic Oak, Baltic Maple and Ethnic Wenge. The new plank will measure 150mm x 245mm and is available in both click and dryback installation.

David continued: “Our flooring is designed to remain as true to its natural counterpart as possible, but with none of the associated drawbacks. Our new large planks provide a striking finish and can create the illusion of more space in an enclosed area, as well as showcasing large open areas of the home such as kitchens or hallways.

“I would urge anybody seeking to showcase the space in their home to consider investing in the new larger planks from our Transform range. Boasting a minimum 20-year guarantee, this new collection offers a stunning and durable solution for any home.”
