Back by Popular Demand at The Northern General Hospital


Yeoman Shield, the UK’s leading manufacturer of wall and door protection has recently been installed as part of a £2m project at the Northern General, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust.

A wide range of Yeoman Shield products were used on the project, which involved transforming a large floor area (which had formally been used as a day rehabilitation unit, Physio and Occupational Therapy Unit ) into a Medical Out-Patients & Chest Clinic with 14 multi-functional examination rooms, chest clinic facility, OT Dept and an Administration and Consultants Office wing.

Yeoman Shield supplied and installed (in an attractive rich Bordeaux colour) door frame and architrave protection, glazing bead and protection strip. Standard corner angles were also fitted to protect vulnerable columns & corners throughout the scheme.

Yeoman Shield’s innovative ‘Imagery’ in Bordeaux and Lilac was also used extensively for numbering consulting rooms, signage on toilets, nappy changing facilities, disabled signage and ward hand washing facilities.

This latest contract follows in the footsteps of a string of successful Yeoman Shield installations at the hospital as Pete Trenchard, an Estates Project Manager for the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation, explained: “Over the years we have recognised it is far better to specify protection to vulnerable areas such as walls and doors when everything is new, rather than waiting for the inevitable damage to occur and then having to spend the Estates Operations budget on the retro installation of protection.”

He added: “Once again I have been very satisfied with the versatility of Yeoman Shield’s products, interface, design and ultimate installation of the product.”
