Gradus is proud to announce the launch of several new additions to our XT stair edgings range, the market-leading solution for reducing the risk of slips, trips and falls on stairs. Whether you are looking for a traditional, elegant look or a contemporary, modern effect, we have the perfect option to suit your project; particularly schemes within hospitality & leisure, residential developments or commercial office. The recent updates our XT range include:
New XT Bronze range - a stunning collection of 14 stair edging profiles offered in Polished Bronze or Satin Bronze finishes, with configurations available to suit various floorcoverings and step shapes. Choose from Interior, Xtra-grip or our new metal castellated inserts and complete the look with our new welded corners and nap trim, also available in matching finishes.
New XT Aluminium finishes - the range has been further strengthened with the introduction of six new attractive finishes; Antique Brass, Antique Bronze, Black Anodised, Polished Chrome, Satin Chrome and Brushed Stainless Steel, in addition to the standard Aluminium finish. These finishes are available across all XT Aluminium profiles and perfect for schemes looking to create a more modern and minimalist aesthetic. Compatible welded corners and nap trims are also available in matching finishes.
New metal castellated insert - A durable and slip-resistant metal insert that can be combined with any profile from our XT Bronze or XT Aluminium ranges to provide an all-metal solution. The metal castellated insert features the unique insert design synonymous with XT stair edgings, which extends around the entire leading edge of the step to ensure that foot contact is always made with the slip-resistant element. Available in nine finishes that correspond with the aforementioned profiles, they enable the design freedom to either select a matching profile and insert finish or choose contrasting finishes to create your own unique effect.
New insert colours - an additional six Interior & Xtra-grip insert colours are offered across XT Bronze & XT Aluminium. The six new colours mean that there is now a choice of 20 Interior Standard Finish and 18 Xtra-grip insert colour options available in total, meaning there is an insert colour and style for every environment. These new colour options can be specified now, with stock available from January 2024.
Adam Hill, Product Marketing Manager at Gradus comments: “Our XT range is long renowned as being the ultimate stair edging solution when it comes to safety and performance, helping to reduce the risk of slips, trips and falls on stairs. The introduction of new profiles, inserts and enhanced finish options, has enabled us to build on these foundations to create an offer that will appeal to sectors or projects where there is a greater focus on aesthetics and appearance, whilst still maintaining the safety and performance benefits of XT.”
All Gradus XT stair edgings have been developed in line with the latest legislation and guidelines such as Approved Document M (ADM) of The Building Regulations 2010, BS 8300-2:2018 and research from BRE (Building Research Establishment).
For an adhesive-only installation, we recommend installing using Gradus Grip GG290. The solvent-free, rapid-curing adhesive is suitable for bonding our XT stair edgings to most solid surfaces within internal environments, eliminating the need for mechanical fixings. Gradus also offer a free and accurate measuring service (UK mainland only) and a fabrications service for curves and welded corners. For more details call Gradus Technical Support on 01625 428922.
