Quantum Flooring Solutions

A comprehensive range of high performance flooring accessories including stair nosings, PVC accessories, trims and transition profiles for use in a variety of non-residential/contract building applications. 

 

STAIR NOSINGS

  • Q-RANGE STAIR NOSING PVC (0-7MM) - As with the aluminium nosing the PVC nosing has an all-over tread design and a satin etched aluminium riser. The range comes in a range of different profiles  covering gauges from no floorcovering to 7mm.

  • H-RANGE STAIR NOSING ( 4-9MM) - The heavy-duty H-Range of stair nosings has a thicker gauge than the S-Range. The thicker gauge enables them to be installed with most textured floorcoverings, such as carpet and carpet tiles. 

  • S-RANGE STAIR NOSING (0-3.5MM) - The gauge range of the slenderline S-Range stair nosings means they are perfect for installation on stairs that are fitted with vinyl or lino floorcoverings. They can be fitted in office, retail, leisure, education and healthcare buildings.

  • DDA (EQUALITY ACT) COMPLIANT STAIR NOSINGS (0-2.5MM) - this range of stair nosing profiles provide best practice solutions to the Equality Act requirements of the BRE approved document M. These profiles provide a 55mm contrasting colour band on the nose and rise of steps and are available in both slim gauge and heavy gauge formats to accommodate all floorcovering types. 

  • FLEXIBLE STAIR NOSINGS (0-8MM) - These flexible stair nosings are used when a quick and/or temporary fitting of a Stair Nosing is required. 

  • Z-RANGE STAIR NOSING (0-6MM) - This is a popular selection of stair nosings. Developed to meet the demand for good value in a competitive market place. They can be fitted in office, retail, leisure, education and healthcare buildings.

  • ECOGLO INFILL (0-9MM) - FOR USE WITH S AND H RANGE STAIR NOSINGS. In poor or reduced light conditions EcoGlo slip resistant treads can help make a stair safer. EcoGlo is a photoluminescent material which is charged and re-charged by both natural and artificial light. It glows in the dark when a light source is removed. 

  • PRO-TREAD INFILL (0-9MM) - USE WITH S, H AND Z RANGE STAIR NOSINGS. An extra grip slip resistant hard wearing Stair Nosing tread material. 

  • TREADSTEPS - Treadsteps are easy to clean slip resistant inserts set into the treads of steps. They can be cast or set into terrazzo, granolithic, marble, wood or concrete stairs, ramps and floors. They are manufactured from a rubber composition which has slip resistant and hard wearing properties.

  • STAIRWAY SIDE EDGING - Stair edging trims, or angles, provide a safe and professional finish to the sides of steps on open string stairs. 

 

PVC ACCESSORIES & TRIMS

  • CAPPING STRIPS AND COVE FORMER - Cove and capping profiles are used together. They allow the floorcovering to be continued up the wall at floor to wall junctions. This produces a neat and clean finish which is important in wet and sanitised areas.

  • FLEXIBLE FLAT SKIRTING - These versatile PVC flat skirtings and buffer strips protect the base of walls and doors in a wide range of internal applications.

  • FLEXIBLE SET-IN SKIRTING - Set-in skirtings cover up the junction between floor and wall. However, they have the additional feature of being welded to the vinyl or lino flooring material. The sealed join ensures that they can be used in areas which are often wet through cleaning, and the weld also inhibits bacterial growth. 

  • FLEXIBLE SIT-ON SKIRTING - Flexible sit-on skirtings offer an easy to fit option to cover the junction between wall and floor. They are installed on top of the floorcovering and are hard wearing. 

  • WELDROD - PVC weld rod seals the join between the foot of set-in skirtings and hard vinyl floorcoverings.

 

TRANSITIONS & ENTRANCE MATTING

  • ENTRANCE MATTING -  Quantum Flooring entrance matting is a single sided entrance matting system perfect for entrance areas subject to high levels of foot traffic such as schools, hospitals and offices. All Quantum Flooring entrance matting is highly durable and great at preventing moisture and dirt from entering a building. 

  • TOPLINE - The ‘Topline’ range offers a floor trim system for installation in contract and domestic locations.

  • FLEXIBLE BEVEL STRIPS - Bevel Strips are used to take the edge of an installed floorcovering down to the base flooring.

  • FLEXIBLE RAMP TRIMS - Ramp trims are used to take the edge of an installed floorcovering down to the base flooring. 

  • FLOOR TRIMS - PVC trims are single profiles that are secured to the residual floor and adjoining floorcoverings are fixed in place up to either side of the profile. 

  • COVER JOINTS - PVC cover joints are positioned between vinyl edges where they cover the joints in a subfloor to reduce the risk of the floorcovering cracking or splitting.

  • TACTILES - The 400mm by 400mm tiles are suitable for both internal and external installations, and are available in four different colours. At approaches to stairs there should be a (corduroy) tactile surface. This is a Building Regulation guideline which helps indicate that a change in level is ahead.

 

Dacatie

An extremely durable range of insulated cavity closers, frame formers and DPC for use in cavity wall construction. Dacatie Building Solutions is the manufacturer and supplier of the original range of Insulated Cavity Closers for the UK construction market. As a market leader, the Dacatie brand gives specifiers and building contractors the assurance of the essential Building Regulation compliance in the construction of cavity walls in the area of reveals around windows and doors. 

CAVITY CLOSERS

  • CAVITY CLOSERS - Dacatie has a wide range of insulated and fire rated cavity closers. Ranging from the economic Supafix Closer, to the architect’s choice of the mineral wool fire rated XFR200 Cavity Closer. All Dacatie closers are covered by BBA certificate no. 98/3474.

  • INSULATED DPC - Dacatie Building Solutions offer a range of Insulated DPCs for party wall junctions.

  • FIRE & ACCESSORIES - Dacatie offer a range of building accessories to complement their range of cavity closers, frame formers and DPC’s.

Qwood is a rigid profile extrusion of PVC blended with wood fibres. The wood used is derived from enduring PEFC certified forest stands. Qwood profiles reflect the natural appearance and feel of wood whilst still retaining the beneficial properties of PVC. Qwood is supplied with a natural smooth surface finish which can be stained or painted. 

  • WINDOW PROFILES - Qwood offers a complete range of high quality glazing beads. Qwood works perfectly with timber to make a better timber window.

HARROGATE FLOORING SHOW 2018

August 2018

Harrogate International Flooring Show 2018

16th – 18th September

Quantum Flooring Solutions will be there again!

Hall M: Stand M12a

As always Quantum Flooring Solutions will be showing new accessory products at the UK’s foremost flooring exhibition. Alongside the established ranges of Stair Nosings, PVC Skirtings Caps and Coves and Transition profiles, visitors to the stand will see these new items from the Quantum Flooring Solutions stable:

1. Special ‘Dementia’ strips for applications in Care Homes - These are bespoke flooring threshold and transition PVCu profiles. They have been developed to cater for the design requirements in homes for people living with dementia. In association with the Dementia Centre at Stirling University (DSDC), carefully selected colours have been introduced for these profiles. Not only do these fit with Building Regulation LRV guidelines, they also meet the standards recommended by DSDC. They provide clear and sensitive definitions to flooring junctions in these places where such attention to detail is so important.

2. The wide-tread option for the popular Q-Range of Stair Nosings - In addition to the ‘all-over’ feature of the standard Q-Range Stair Nosings, this wide tread introduced last year is an alternative to the traditional double channel Stair Nosings. It provides a full slip resistant surface to the nose of steps on stairs in heavily trafficked areas like schools, hospitals and large retail outlets. Available in all standard Q-Range tread colours.

3. The Quantum ‘Pro-Tread’ - This Stair Nosing tread material is durable and has excellent slip resistant properties in both wet and dry conditions. Available with all S, H and Z range Quantum Flooring Solutions’ Stair Nosing profiles, Pro-Tread comes in a choice of 6 new colours

4. LVT transition profiles - Quality vinyl tiles need quality trims at thresholds and transitions. Quantum Flooring Solutions has developed two smart profiles – ramp and transition – that are available in three different finishes. Chrome, Gold or Satin Silver. Whichever profile or finish is chosen, it is fitted with a feature strip of the LVT being laid. It means there is a quality finish throughout the job.
