The Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester is a District General Hospital serving much of central Hampshire. It is one of three hospitals serving a population of approximately 600,000 across Hampshire and parts of west Berkshire.
Just Floors were asked by the Hospital Trust directly to help out with a Health and Safety issue on around 70 steps that are located outside the main Hospital building.
The steps run from the car park level that is situated at the top of a hill down to the main hospital building that is on a lower level.
Quantum Flooring recommended the SF225R ramp back profile with Ecoglo Yellow and Photo front tread as it offered a fail-safe photoluminescent finish that means the stair edge contrast to be visible 24 hours a day.
This option was approved by the hospital trust and Just Floors placing an order for 95 metres of SF225R with the Ecoglo inserts. They received the requested stair nosings the very next day, rapidly delivered to site by Quantum. This was made possible due to Quantum Flooring's lean manufacturing practices.
