Gradus has supplied wall protection systems for the University of Liverpool’s Veterinary School as part of a refurbishment project.

Based at the Leahurst campus in the Wirral, the work will help to improve the aesthetics of the building, whilst also reducing ongoing maintenance costs.

Part of the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Veterinary Science, the Small Animal Teaching Hospital employs over 350 staff, over 100 of these being veterinary surgeons, along with 280 students.

The facility is one of Europe’s largest and most innovative veterinary hospitals, playing a key role in educating veterinary students, by teaching them the very latest theory and techniques.

As part of the refurbishment and upgrade of the building, standard PVC-u corner guards and wall guards were specified by Gradus to protect both circulation areas as well as individual rooms.

Corners can be one of the most vulnerable parts of a building and, if left exposed, can suffer damage from a plethora of sources, including trolleys and other mobile equipment.

The PVC-u corner guards specified will help to reduce ongoing maintenance costs and maintain interiors by absorbing damage and deflecting impact.

To contrast with the the veterinary school’s walls, a clay colour was chosen for the dual height wall guards. This helps to aid navigation whilst modernising the interior, thus giving the environment a more relaxed, less institutional feel.

Maria Morgan, Product Manager at Gradus, commented: “Gradus wall protection systems are ideal for use in busy working environments such as The Small Animal Teaching Hospital.

“Our corner and wall guards will help to minimise maintenance costs and prolong the lifespan of the facilities interior by preventing damage to wall coverings, paintwork and equipment.”
