Product designed to offer guidance and support to pedestrians and protection against damage caused by wheeled traffic in corridors and walkways
Gradus has launched the InPro 1000 series, a Combi-rail designed to offer guidance and support to pedestrians and protection against damage caused by wheeled traffic in corridors and walkways.
Featuring an aluminium retainer with replaceable impact-resistant PVC-u covers and complementary PVC-u accessories, the Gradus InPro 1000 series Combi-rail has a large surface area and has been designed to offer both direct and indirect protection against damage.
It features a comfortable grip with a 41mm oval diameter and thumb groove to provide pedestrian guidance and support. The replaceable PVC-u covers are through-coloured with a textured finish to conceal the effects of impact and abrasion. Easy to clean, they are also resistant to bacterial growth.
Available in a range of colours, the InPro 1000 series Combi-rail can be selected in a colour that contrasts with the wall. This aids visually-impaired users and helps specifiers to meet their duties under the Equality Act 2010, in line with BS8300:2009+A1:2010 and ADM. The Combi-rail also meets the guidelines in Approved Document M (2004) of the Building Regulations 2010.
The Gradus InPro 1000 series Combi-rail handrail is also available with SureContact, a permanently-protective antimicrobial handrail finish designed to improve hygiene in healthcare applications.
Anna Conrad-Smith, marketing product manager for Gradus, said: “With its hygienic PVC-u cover, the InPro 1000 series Combi-rail is an ideal choice for nursing/care homes, hospitals and education environments.
“When installed with SureContact this Combi-rail supports cleaner healthcare environments by providing a sanitised, moisture-resistant handrail surface that reduces the spread of bacteria and infections, helping to improve hygiene and safety for patients and staff.”
