Yeoman Shield Improves Patient Welfare


Yeoman Shield, a leading provider of wall and door protection products, has recently completed a project to install wall protection, including decorative imagery wall panels, in a newly appointed hospital department.  

The project not only aimed to enhance the aesthetics and hygiene of the ward, as well as to protect the walls from damage caused by trolleys, beds and other equipment but to aid in client way finding and department differentiation. 


Yeoman Shield’s FalmouthEx wall protection panels were chosen for their durability, easy maintenance and hygienic finish. These were fitted to the lower half of the walls in the corridor and waiting areas to protect from impact damage that can be caused by the everyday use of the department. 

The Guardian Handrail from Yeoman Shield was also installed with the protection panels along walls, serving as an additional defence barrier whilst offering a supportive handrail for those services users that may require it. 

To mark out different waiting areas and to make the environment more welcoming and less sterile, Yeoman Shield Imagery Panels were installed full length to one of the walls. Using chosen images of the Yorkshire Countryside to contrast with the interior design colour scheme the decorative panels offer a calming influence. 

The materials were installed by Yeoman Shield’s directly employed fixing operatives providing a quick and considerate service. 

Yeoman Shield’s project manager said: “We are very proud of this project, as it demonstrates how our wall protection products can benefit not only the appearance and functionality of a building, but also the well-being of its occupants. We believe that our wall protection panels can make a positive difference in any healthcare setting, as they create a more attractive and sanitary environment for patients and staff.” 

With over 55 years of experience Yeoman Shield provide wall and door protection system for various sectors, including healthcare, education, hospitality and retail.
