Schlüter-Systems gives feature staircase the edge with illuminated profiles

Industrial sensor specialist Longvale Ltd have selected Schlüter-LIPROTEC illuminated profile technology in conjunction with Schlüter-TREP stair nosing profile to give their feature staircase a unique lighting design with a modern, slip-resistant finish, within the entrance to their brand new facility.

Longvale, located at Lancaster Park in Burton Upon Trent,  was founded in the mid-1980s and supply products such as Mechanical Switches and Special Sensors from manufacturers around the world to industries ranging from Oil and Gas to Rail and Automotive and many more. However, their new facility now allows them to design and produce bespoke solutions for customers themselves.

Schlüter-Systems has been the market leader in essential accessories for tile and stone since it was founded in 1966 and they provide complete system solutions and technical support for residential and commercial tile and stone projects, large or small.

Schlüter introduced the new range of illuminated profiles to add a fourth dimension to architecture, with lighting playing an essential role when it comes to inspired design. Schlüter-LIPROTEC is an intelligent lighting concept that combines lighting and profiles within the tile and stone covering. A choice of indirect or direct light is available, with Schlüter profile technology, allowing you to emphasise curtain walls and illuminate stairways, foyers, bathrooms and more, all with an innovative, unique appearance.

The company responsible for the interior fit-out was Bruton Interiors of Derby, they undertake and project manage building work from new builds to renovations throughout the country.

For this particular project Schlüter-LIPROTEC-PB with indirect and direct light was combined with the high quality Schlüter-TREP-E stair nosing profile in a brushed stainless steel finish, turning the staircase into a stunning focal point with an illuminated subtle accent. The Schlüter-TREP range also improves safety on staircases, maintaining and protecting installations to keep the edges of the tile or natural stone covering intact.

Maurice Parker, tiling contractor chosen for the project, are a family business also from Derby that specialise in the supply and installation for domestic and commercial projects. They carried out the installation of the Schlüter-LIPROTEC and -TREP profiles on to each of the 19 steps.
