Yeoman Shield a Firm Favourite at York Races


The New Moet Pavilion and Roof Terrace at York Racecourse is not only opulently stylish for the enjoyment of race goers but with the help of Yeoman Shield’s New Mini D-Fender the back of house areas are also keeping up appearances.

Construction, carried out by The Lindum Group, saw the original wooden bar replaced by the new Moet Pavilion offering a spacious ground floor Champagne bar as well as a roof terrace overlooking the course and parade rings, as part of the 2nd phase of a multi-million pound redevelopment of York Racecourse.

The Moet Pavilion is a very popular and well used meeting point on race days which can see a few hundred people being catered for in this facility. The back of house areas certainly come under the hammer on these busy occasions with the movement of boxes and barrels having the potential to cause damage and marking to walls and corners.

200 metres of Yeoman Shield’s New Mini D-fender has been fitted to protect the pavilion’s cellar and storage areas from damage which can be caused by the passage of heavy trolleys, equipment and objects through the area.

Installed to the walls at mid and low level for maximum protection, by Yeoman Shield’s directly employed fixing operatives, the Mini D-fender was complemented by the addition of MD75 rubber corner protection angles to corners also vulnerable to damage.

Nick Fazackerley, General Manager of York Racecourse Hospitality commented “The new wall protectors are excellent, we have a lot of pallets, kegs and trolleys which our team are good at bashing into walls but with the protection in place you would never know. They are a great addition to the facilities.

The installation of the Yeoman Shield rubber Mini D Fender and MD 75 Corner Protection Angles will contribute to keeping the busy back of house areas looking smart and damage free for some time to come with the additional benefit of being easily cleaned.
