Healthcare safety in the age of COVID-19

Protection products to help minimise the spread of coronavirus, discover our range

Yeoman Shield is back!

We’re fully operational and able to fulfil orders on all our products installation service requests! All our services have been made COVID-safe and we have implemented strict working measures to ensure installation in hospitals and other healthcare centres is safe for hospital staff, patients and our teams.

Adapting in the age of COVID-19

As the Coronavirus pandemic continues, it is vital that we update all public infrastructure to new safety standards. Our range of products provides a variety of easily-installable solutions which promote hygiene and, by preventing damages such as cracks, crevices and dents, reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

Hygiene

The importance of hygiene is clearer now than ever. Our wall and door protection products are made from rigid PVCu, a material which does not support the growth of bacteria of mould and is easy to clean and disinfect. These protection products also prevent trollies and other equipment from causing scratches and dents on hospital interiors which can otherwise harbour harmful bacteria and viruses, helping create a more hygienic environment.

Handwash station signage

Handwash stations are being installed in hospitals around the country – but they’re not always implemented to their full potential.

Our handwash station signage products clearly indicate the presence of the station to passers-by, promoting the use of these stations, whilst their easily-cleanable and inherently hygienic surface improves hygiene in the area surrounding the station.

uPVC pods

Safety for hospital staff involved in administration and I.T. is just as critical as in other parts of hospitals, especially given the close proximity of desks in these areas. Our work pods can be quickly and easily assembled and help partition an office space safely to help stop the spread of COVID-19; made from clear uPVC, these allow for easy visibility in the office.
