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. Dacastop is a fire rated DPC with 60 minutes’ integrity, used at both party wall and floor junctions in cavities. DacaMultisock is an acoustic fire stop designed to prevent fire penetration and sound transmission at these junctions; it can also be used as a wall plate. 

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

 

Qwood

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. Qwood reflects the natural appearance and feel of wood whilst having the beneficial properties of a composite, including being continually straight, not rotting and great long term performance.
  • SLIDING / SASH PROFILES - As with the window profiles Qwood offers a complete range of glasing beads specifically for sliding and sash profiles which can be stained or painted to match the existing look of the door or window.
  • DOOR PROFILES - Qwood offers a small range of door profiles. Qwood works perfectly with timber to make a better timber door. Qwood reflects the natural appearance and feel of wood whilst having the beneficial properties of a composite, including being continually straight, not rotting and great long term performance.

Trade Days

Carpet & Flooring is the leading independent distributor of floorcoverings and accessories in the UK. Quantum Flooring Solutions is proud to support Carpet & Flooring throughout the country.

As part of this ongoing partnership, we are happy to announce that Quantum Sales Managers will be holding a Trade Counter Morning at every Carpet & Flooring location across 2019. We will be at each branch from 7:30am to 1pm, with free breakfasts available all morning. The next scheduled morning will be held at Carpet & Flooring Camberley on Tuesday the 7th of May.

- Camberley: Tue 7th May
- Bristol: Mon 1st Jul
- Kent: Thu 1st Aug
- Gateshead: Mon 2nd Sep
- Glasgow: Tue 15th Oct
- Manchester: Tue 5th Nov

Our Trade Counter Mornings will offer an excellent opportunity to discuss existing Quantum products, along with our great new products. New Quantum products include Q-Fix adhesive, our single solution for fitting Quantum Stair Nosings.

We are also introducing extra grip Plus-Tread infill, which has extremely low slip potential in dry or wet conditions, and our re-engineered Q-Range Wide Stair Nosings which offer the option for an extra-large tread surface. In addition, we are expanding our popular range of Quantum Entrance Mattings. The range will now include a cost-effective 50cm sq. lock-down assembly matting system, along with a smaller tiled version.

For more information on the Trade Counter Mornings, contact your local Quantum Sales Manager or call Quantum on 0161 627 4222. Alternatively, just drop into your local Carpet & Flooring branch on the day! We have seven mornings planned so far, with dates for all other locations to be confirmed soon.

Dacatie Product Update

April 2019

Dacatie Green Building Solutions continues to provide the building and construction market with a quality, cost effective and BBA certified range of insulated cavity closer products.

For many years our cavity closers have been manufactured using virgin and recycled white materials, with minor shade variations due to the supply of recycled feed stock. Cavity closers are unseen products and any variation to the visual colour of the profile does not impact on the physical use and thermal performance of the products offered.

To mitigate potential price increases to our customers the following changes will be made effective from February 2019:

• All Dacatie cavity closer profiles will be supplied in either grey or white recycled uPVC and the colour may vary from batch to batch

• The EPS insulation used in the Dacatie SF and TF ranges will be supplied in white and all Dacatie insulated cavity closers will continue to exceed the path of minimum thermal resistance requirement of 0.45m2K/W

It is important to highlight that the above changes allow Dacatie to continue the fantastic service it provides at competitive prices, and it gives greater flexibility due to ongoing material supply limitations and price fluctuations. As an environmentally responsible supplier, this is another way in which we can improve our sustainability and utilise more recycled materials and thus reduce our impact on the environment.

We are in the process of updating all product data, literature and website information to reflect the above changes. If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Service Team on 0161 627 4222, or at info@dacatie.co.uk.
