Quantum Flooring tries to help make building planning and specifying as straightforward as possible. With this in mind, it has published two new BIM models. They are Q-Range DUO, and Quantum’s heavy duty recessed stair nosing (HPN1). Both of these stair nosings have been designed specifically to comply with BS8300:2:2018, the Equality Act, and Building Regulations Parts M and K.
Q-Range Duo is a new 55 by 55mm stair nosing. It has an all over tread design which helps to reduce the chance of slips, along with a riser which accommodates a second tread. This offers the opportunity for having one solid colour for the whole stair nosing, which is recommended as best practice. There are a wide range of colours, with LRVs from 6 to 81. It is available in 3 profiles, to fit with any floorcoverings. This makes Q-Range DUO ideal when specifying for a project which needs adherence to all industry guidelines.
The other new product in the Bimstore is Quantum’s high performance, anti-slip recessed stair nosing. This heavy duty profile is suitable for use on concrete, timber, resin, or stone-clad steel staircases. It is manufactured to be highly durable, and has been designed for commercial and public buildings with high levels of foot traffic. It is safe for use in both dry and wet conditions, making it ideal for projects such as stadiums, university campuses, and transport infrastructure. It can be fitted with Quantum’s EcoGlo photoluminescent tread, making it great in low-light areas.
Quantum also has BIM models for a range of flooring accessories. This includes its new slimline capping strip and cove former, and its flexible sit-on skirting.
