SEN School refreshed with Yeoman Shield

Fairfield School in Batley, West Yorkshire, managed by FM company Pinnacle Group, engaged with Yeoman Shield wall & door protection specialists to carry out re-branding and maintenance work during the February half-term.

Catering for students from 4 – 19 years old with a wide range of needs, the school premises required the protection rails and handrails along the main corridors to receive new covers to reflect the fresh re-branding of the school. 

Having previously installed their Guardian Handrail and 200 mm Protection Rail products in the school, Yeoman Shield were able to remove the original covers and replace with the vibrant colour ways of Aqua Blue rails and Steel Blue stop end and corner accessories offering a contrast to highlight doorways, entrances and direction changes.

Michael Cooper, Lifecycle & Variation Manager for FM division of Pinnacle said of the work carried out: -

 “Many thanks to Yeoman Shield for the smooth and successful completion of this project.

“The feedback received from our PFI partners at the school following their rebranding exercise, have been really positive.

“I have used Yeoman Shield products in both Healthcare and Educational settings and their protective products are perfect for the environments we are responsible for maintaining.

“The products and quality of workmanship are both excellent and I would be more than happy to use Yeoman Shield for any of our upcoming protective requirements across any of our contracts.”

Over the years the Guardian Handrail and Protection Rails have protected the walls of Fairfield School from impact damage caused by the everyday movement of staff and students, (some using wheeled mobility aids), helping to reduce maintenance and repair costs, keeping the school looking smart and welcoming.

The versatility and durability of the products have facilitated the choice of colour change, adding to the bright and fun environment envisioned by the building management and school team.

Manufactured from a rigid PVCu material, the rails are easy to clean and do not support the growth of bacteria or mould maintaining the all important high hygiene standards.
