CASE STUDY: HOTEL & LEISURE - The Majestic Hotel - STAIR NOSINGS

  • HOTEL & LEISURE - The Majestic Hotel - STAIR NOSINGS

The Challenge

The Majestic Hotel is a famous landmark in Harrogate. It first opened in 1900 and is a magnificent example of grand Victorian architecture. The hotel is set in 8 acres of land and boasts 170 rooms, along with 8 large function rooms.

Bartram Flooring Services was employed as the flooring contractor for refurbishments in The Majestic Hotel. Part of the work involved fitting stair nosings on the luxurious staircases inside the hotel. The stair nosings would have to be hardwearing to deal with the huge amount of footfall from guests and conference visitors. They would need to be highly slip-resistant and fit well with the floorcoverings to help prevent slips, trips and falls. The stair nosings also needed to blend in with the sophisticated setting of the hotel.

The Solution

Bartram Flooring Services got in touch with Quantum Flooring Solutions, requesting the free QSMS measuring service. The QSMS ensured that a Quantum surveyor came to The Majestic Hotel in the next 48 hours and measured every step length. The surveyor suggested that Quantum’s HB157 profile with Anodised Gold colouring would fit in with the elegant décor. A satin finish was used on the stair nosings in order to reduce the potential for glare, in line with Building Regulations. The carpet on the staircase is thick, so the HG1 Nap Trim, also in Anodised Gold, was used to minimise the chance of trips when using the stairs. A black tread infill was used in the stair nosings, to make the step noses stand out from the light coloured carpets.

The Outcome

Quantum’s Stair Nosings were fitted on the staircases in The Majestic Hotel with minimum fuss. This was due to the professionalism of Bartham Flooring Services, and the accuracy of the electronic QSMS measuring service. The Anodised Gold stair nosings look great and fit perfectly with the stately opulence of the hotel. The HB157 profiles, along with the HG1 Nap Trims pinning down the carpet on the step treads, minimise the potential for trips and falls on the staircase. Meanwhile, Quantum’s slip-resistant tread material reduces the possibility of slips.

The Majestic Hotel received top-class service from Bartram Flooring Services along with high quality stair nosings from Quantum Flooring Solutions. The stair nosings in the hotel will be looking great and helping to keep its guests safe for many years to come.
