A North London boys’ school has installed robust wall protection panels from Yeoman Shield to help protect its corridor walls.
Keble Preparatory School, in Winchmore Hill has provided high-quality education for pupils aged between 4-13 since 1929 and now has more than 200 pupils who enjoy a wide range of academic, cultural and sporting activities.
But during the busy school day, the movement of equipment and the normal traffic of pupils and staff was taking its toll on the interior walls of the main building.
As well as looking unappealing, the damage was a drain on the school’s maintenance budget as precious time and money is spent on the constant repair and redecoration of the walls.
John Field, Bursar for Keble Prep commented “We needed to find a permanent solution to protect the interior walls from continually being marked and scuffed.
“We came across Yeoman Shield through a recommendation and thought that their wall protection systems could be the solution to our ongoing problem.”
A Yeoman Shield Area Sales Manager visited the school to undertake a no-obligation site survey and advise which products would best meet its needs.
Yeoman Shield’s skilled fixing operatives then installed the 2.0mm thick wall protection panels in the company’s FalmouthEx finish during the Christmas break to minimise disruption to pupils and staff.
The panels, supplied in Dusty Grey and Royal Blue colours, were fitted to 1200mm high in the senior school ground and top floor corridors, as well as to stairs and stairwells.
In addition, 75 x 75mm corner protection angles gave a neat finish to the panels, as well as offering added protection to vulnerable corners.
The fitted wall protection will prevent unsightly damage and avoid the need for costly repair and redecoration, helping the school to maintain its pristine appearance and protect its maintenance budgets too.
“We are exceptionally pleased with the quality of both Yeoman Shield’s products and workmanship. Being able to do the installation work at a time that was the least disruptive to the running of the school was a bonus,” concluded Mr Field
