As part of a building upgrade the national frozen food specialists, Farm Foods, required specialist Stair Nosings to help improve health and safety and maintain a professional image on both the inside and outside of their central West Midlands office.
One of the key considerations on this project was high foot traffic which had caused the stairs to suffer large amounts of wear and tear in the past. Health and safety was also paramount for this project and the Stair Nosings had to be clear and easy to see, due to the dark/shaded area outside of the office. As it was a key entrance to the building the project had particularly tight timescales.
Quantum Flooring’s Heavy Duty Range provided the perfect solution for Farm Foods. Used internally, the HF2 Stair Nosing has a neat finish that is aesthetically pleasing and is very easy to clean, providing a low maintenance solution. The slip resistant tread, which is hardwearing and great for high footfall traffic, gives the benefit of extra safety. The HF2 Stair Nosing fits with a wide range of flooring, as well as protecting the step edge and flooring material, thereby ensuring greater durability.
The unique photoluminescent Ecoglo tread option was used outside to ensure 24 hour visibility. The step edge contrast is visible in all light conditions providing an ideal solution for the dark area outside of the building, whilst the highly visible tread material used dramatically reduces slips and falls by improving the step edge contrast in all light conditions.
These cost effective and low maintenance solutions ensure that the staircases are safe and able to accommodate high levels of foot traffic.
