Care home upholds high hygiene standards with the help of Yeoman Shield handrail

Lambton House Care Home, County Durham, has taken extreme care in designing a home that caters for the lifestyle of their older generation clients by creating beautiful décor, relaxing lounges and spacious light living areas.

With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, as part of their infection control improvement projects, Lambton House engaged with Yeoman Shield to carry out the replacement of damaged wooden handrails with a PVCu alternative.

Yeoman Shield supplied their Guardian 50 mm diameter handrails as a hygienic alternative replacement. Manufactured from a rigid PVCu the handrail is resilient to impact damage and scratching that can promote the growth of bacteria. Its non-porous surface allows for easy cleaning with commercial strength cleaners without affecting colour or finish.

Yeoman Shield Guardian 50mm Diameter handrail is available in a choice of colours that help to achieve a homely, less sterile, ambience.
