Yeoman Shield Contributes to Sustainability at Pinderfields Hospital


Yeoman Shield engaged once more with Engie in conjunction with Consort Healthcare and Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust to continue to improve the sustainability and lifecycle of wall coverings in key areas of Pinderfields Hospital.

After having replaced printed graphics on the low level part of the walls previously, with Yeoman Shield Imagery wall protection panels, The Estates Department were keen to do the same for the walls on the other levels of the hospital.

“The lower part of walls in such a busy place as Pinderfields Hospital really receive some damage from trolleys, trucks and the general passing through of people.” Explained Michael Kenward, Engie Capital Works Co-ordinator. “The previous patterned wall panels that Yeoman Shield supplied and fitted for us has certainly shown benefit in protecting against damage, keeping the walls looking pristine as well as saving on repair and redecoration costs.

“We therefore thought it wise to invest in the same product for walls on other floors within the hospital.”

Yeoman Shield were required again to copy images and dimensions from the printed graphics on the original wall covering. This was then replicated on Yeoman Shield’s FalmouthEx 2.0mm thick protection panels cut and shaped on their in house CNC machine.

Colour matching was achieved using shades for Yeoman Shield’s newly increased colour range. The manufactured panels in shades of Yellow, Purple and Orange were installed, seamlessly against the original upper wall covering, by Yeoman Shield’s directly employed fixing team. A grey “dado” strip completed the look of the new wall protection panels.

“Again we are very happy with the quality of the Yeoman Shield panels and the standard of work carried out by their installers.” Concluded Mr Kenward.
