Gradus Stair Nosings and commercial carpet

Hurren and Glynn Carpets and Flooring in Brighton and Hove undertake exciting projects for both the commerical and domestic markets. One recent project involved the fitting of 500 Gradus Stair Nosings and over 700 square metres of commercial grade carpet.


Gradus Stair Nosings

Gradus  is a market leader in Stair Nosings with a wide variety of designs available to ensure stairs are safe for all types of use.

At the start of the project a representative from Gradus visits the site to measure the stairs and assess which Gradus Stair nosings are suitable.

We can then make an informed decision with our customer on which nosing is the right fit for safety, design and budget.

The Gradus Stair Nosing selected for the installation is this one. An aluminium nosing with a slight ‘rake back’ as this worked best for the stair profile. 


What colour insert is best?

With aluminium stair nosings there is a coloured ‘insert’ on the top. In the picture above it is beige however there are many colours to choose.

It is important for Health and Safety reasons that the insert is a different colour to the carpet. This ensures users of the stairs can easily identify the stair and avoid trips.

In technical terms the colour of the insert needs to be 30 points different to the floor-covering. To give you an idea of what that means, black to white is 100 points. We can advise on this so nothing to be concerned about.

Commercial Carpet

For this project carpet, rather than carpet tiles, was most suitable. At Hurren and Glynn we specialise in both types and will advise you on the most suitable for your next project.

We stock ranges from a wide variety of manufacturers to give you the most choice  for styles, colours and budgets. Some of our suppliers are listed below but as a company that has traded for nearly 60 years we can source any carpet.

How much will it cost?

With flooring you do get what u pay for. If budget allows therefore, it is worth investing in the flooring so that it will last longer and the upheaval and cost of replacing it is delayed. At Hurren and Glynn Brighton and Hove we have commercial ranges for all budgets.
