Gradus specified for upgrade at BMI Healthcare facility

24 November 2016

Contract interiors specialist Gradus has supplied SureProtect Pure hygienic wall cladding and Specialist Bathroom Products to BMI The Somerfield Hospital, to improve cleanliness and accessibility.

Based in Maidstone, Kent, BMI The Somerfield Hospital is part of BMI Healthcare, a leading provider of independent healthcare with a nationwide network of hospitals.

The hospital is registered for 38 beds in total and features three operating theatres, three minor procedure rooms and a range of specialist clinics.

To help improve the hygiene levels and ease of access for such a diverse range of patients, Gradus refurbished the main outpatient’s WC on the ground floor.

Products specified included SureProtect Pure wall cladding and Maxima Specialist Bathroom Products, which were supplied and fitted by an experienced team from Gradus Contracts.

SureProtect Pure, was specified to ensure the bathroom remained easy to clean and maintain, helping to reduce the need for frequent replacement and contribute towards a hygienic environment.

The smooth surface is impervious to moisture and bacteria making it ideal for applications that must adhere to rigorous hygiene standards, such as hospital environments.

Maxima products in Blue, including a Grab Rail and two Adjustable Support Arms, were chosen to contrast with the White SureProtect Pure wall cladding and to help ensure inclusive access to the WC.

The Specialist Bathroom Products specified have been designed to meet guidelines in Approved Document M of the Building Regulation 2010.

Connie Stocker, Executive Director at BMI The Somerfield Hospital, said: “We chose to specify Gradus because of its years of experience in the contract interior industry, and proven track record in providing safe and secure solutions to the healthcare sector.

“As we have a large number of people using our facilities everyday, we required a solution that made our WC accessible to everyone visiting, working or staying in the hospital, and so Gradus provided us with a comprehensive range of Specialist Bathroom Products to meet our needs.”

Anna Conrad-Smith, Marketing Product Manager at Gradus, commented: “In addition to The Maxima Range, Gradus SureProtect Pure wall cladding is an excellent choice for hospital environments.

"The smooth, easy to clean surface is also extremely durable and resistant to impact damage, which helps to maintain hygiene standards and reduce ongoing repair and maintenance costs.

“This project demonstrates our commitment to creating safe and accessible buildings without compromising on the aesthetics of the building.”
