Yeoman Shield help keep interiors looking good at care centre

Fulwell Community Resource Centre operated by Sunderland Care and Support, offers a wide range of day opportunities to support people with learning disabilities.

Due to the busy footfall in the Resource Centre and with sporting and social activities taking place as well within the building, the walls, (including those in the hydrotherapy pool room), and doors were starting to look worn with damage occurring from everyday footfall and the movement of equipment.

To help improve the appearance of the damaged doors, Yeoman Shield’s directly employed fixing operatives fitted door protection to a selection of doors throughout the centre. This included fire rated door edge protectors to leading edges, protection panels at half height to door faces and PVCu clad hardwood glazing bead units.

The fire rated door protection products not only improved the look of the doors but will ensure protection from damage well into the future, helping to preserve the working condition of the all-important fire doors.

The hydrotherapy pool room received Yeoman Shield 2mm thick Falmouthex protection panels complete with a top edge trim to reduce water ingress.

David Thompson said,

“We are very pleased with the quality of work and items installed by Yeoman Shield and the products have certainly given a lift to the decor while helping to reduce future maintenance costs.”
