Contract interiors specialist Gradus has supplied a prestigious London Grammar School with wall protection to maintain an attractive and functional learning environment.

Kingston Grammar School, based in Kingston upon Thames, is a leading independent school for boys and girls aged 11-18 years. The Royal Charter originally founded the school in 1561, but its roots can be traced back to as early as the 13th century.

The school is in the top 1% of secondary schools within the UK and needed the interior appearance of the building to reflect the level of education offered. Gradus wall protection systems are easy to clean and maintain, whilst minimising the need for on-going repairs and maintenance.

Gradus Sanparrel PVC-u sheet and corner guards have been installed in circulation areas such as corridors and staircases that are regularly subject to a high level of foot traffic throughout the school.

Profiles installed included Sanparrel PVC-u sheet and rubrails in Dolphin to complement the surrounding interior. Gradus wall protection products are through coloured and textured to conceal the effects of abrasion caused by the hustle and bustle of a busy school.

The installation of Gradus corner guards have helped to improve hygiene at the school, as damaged corners can harbor dirt and be difficult to clean. Corner guards also reduce maintenance costs by protecting and preserving the interior appearance of the building.

Anna Conrad-Smith, Marketing Product Manager for Gradus, said: “Kingston Grammar is a prestigious school and needed interior solutions to meet their high standards. Busy school environments are routinely exposed to high levels foot traffic, causing regular impact and abrasion. At Gradus we are able to help specifiers and project managers create fit for purpose, safe and inclusive educational environments that are built to last.”

Gradus provides free consultation and practical recommendations for facilities, offering a single point of contact for a range of products, including wall protection, carpets, barrier matting, LED lighting and flooring accessories.
