Gradus installs wall protection for London children’s centre

A complete wall protection package from Gradus has been installed at the Evelina London Children’s Day Treatment Centre, to create a fun and hygienic atmosphere for children who are undergoing treatment.

The centre, part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, has been built to provide more life-changing care to children and young people who don’t necessarily need to stay overnight. The project, delivered by construction company Morgan Sindall, saw Gradus collaborate with Art in Site – a London-based studio of artists and designers - and ADP Architecture, to utilise wall cladding to create a healing and engaging environment for the hospital’s young patients to thrive in.

The space-themed designs were printed onto Gradus SureProtect Artworx cladding for an easy-to-maintain finish. The SureProtect range is specifically designed for use in areas where high levels of cleanliness are crucial. The smooth surface makes SureProtect Artworx easy to wipe clean while creating an impermeable barrier to moisture. It also provides an alternative to ceramic tiles as there is no grouting, which can often harbour bacteria. Alongside SureProtect, Gradus also supplied Stainless Steel Corner Guards throughout the Day Centre. Designed for use in areas likely to receive the most impact from pedestrians and wheeled traffic, Gradus’ Stainless Steel Corner Guards are hygienic, corrosion-resistant and incredibly durable.
