Success for Gradus carpet range

Education Wed, Nov 10, 2021 3:47 PM

Swansea Council has transformed the support it delivers to pupils either outside or at risk of leaving mainstream education by building a brand new £9.64m school.

When ‘scoping-out’ the project Swansea Council in conjunction with the contractor, would specify over 2000m2 of Gradus carpet tiles for the flooring element of the project.

They would ultimately opt for the Streetwise Design and Stratus designs for the school’s classrooms, corridors and communal areas.

Cockett (Pupil Referral Unit) PRU school now provides staff and pupils with attractive and functional facilities all on one site, replacing several previously outdated accommodation units. The development was funded by Swansea Council and the Welsh Government under the 21st Century Schools and Colleges Programme and was built by Kier Construction.

Gradus Carpets is a brand of the Gerflor Group, manufacturing premium quality carpet tiles and planks, broadloom, and impervious backed carpets.

Utilising a range of high-performance yarns, Gradus’ extensive range of carpets are suitable for a wide variety of contract applications including commercial office, healthcare, and education environments.

The installation of the new Gradus flooring would need to meet the exacting standards set by Keir Construction and Swansea Council with the ‘laying’ of the carpet tiles being the responsibility of a well-established and respected Welsh flooring contractor. Floor Furnishings Limited are a Cardiff-based flooring contractor who have been conducting flooring contracts throughout the UK for a wide range of clients since 1961. It is an enviable track record of commitment in supplying and fitting quality flooring.

Streetwise Design from Gradus is an attractive textured loop pile carpet tile which is designed to be installed randomly. Available in a range of complementary colours. Streetwise Design comprises Originals and Brights and can be combined with Stratus Jet Stream and the Emphasis carpet tile range to create interesting and contemporary floor schemes.

Stratus from Gradus is a tufted loop pile carpet tile produced with ECONYL regenerated solution dyed nylon yarn. The range is available in 12 colours and offers a durable and practical solution for commercial office and education environments.
