Yeoman Shield Launch New Oval Handrail

Introducing the new Oval Handrail, the 2nd of 3 new products being launched by Yeoman Shield Wall & Door Protection Specialists, by the end of 2023.

A welcome addition to the already renowned range of handrails from Yeoman Shield the new 45mm Oval Handrail meets the brief perfectly for installation in corridors and communal areas where added support for service users is required. It can also be installed on sloping ramps and stairways.

The rail outer is manufactured from PVCu and is 45mm in diameter offering an ergonomic rail that is warm to the touch and exceptionally easy to clean.

This hygienic system is supported by a lightweight aluminium core for added strength which in turn is mounted on stainless steel underslung brackets giving the required 65mm distance between the rail and wall to ensure a firm and comfortable grip for the user.

The Oval Handrail is available in a choice of colours with an accompanying range of accessories to ensure a durable and solid fit to the substrate within the environment the rail is intended for.

The implementation of contrasting-coloured accessories to the main rail can be achieved, helping those service users who have impaired vision or have dementia.

 Handrails are particularly valued in environments which are heavily used by the public such as Hospitals, Schools, Entertainment and Retail facilities.

Competitively priced and available from stock with a quick delivery time (an installation service is also available), the Oval Handrail is set to become a firm favourite within the sector.   For more information go to or call 0113 279 5854
