The latest news from Gradus can be found in this section in the form of press releases. These also date back many years so you can check out everything that's happened in the past too.

In addition you can set up an RSS feed to keep up to date with all amendments to our website, and you can even follow us on Twitter.

We've also got some really informative video footage for you to watch from some leading industry experts who are talking about all aspects of specifying stair edgings - from slip-resistance and stair design through to colour selection with visual contrast. We work closely with many leading experts as we value their input and opinion and they help to ensure that we develop the right products for our customers.

We have views from Anne Alderson representing the CAE (Centre for Accessible Environments - reviewing step design and making stairs more accessible), Geoff Cooke of Reading University (well known for his work on visual contrast with Project Rainbow), Steve Thorpe and Robert Shaw from the Health & Safety Laboratory (talking about slip hazards), Mike Roys from BRE (covering the research undertaken on the use of stair edgings on non-domestic stairs) and Marilyn Sturgeon of NCS (explaining contrast and design).

Finally, this section also contains details of items featured on our home page.
