Macmillan Academy, eager to promote sustainability and design throughout the interior fabric of their academy have used Yeoman Shield wall protection products to help achieve their goal.
Based in Middlesbrough, Macmillan academy, responsible for the education of nearly 1500 pupils between the ages of 11-18, have spread their facilities across various site buildings that were built anytime from the 1940s to 2011, to accommodate the students.
Wanting to provide an aesthetic modern synergy between older parts of the academy and the new, along with reducing repair and redecoration requirements, Yeoman Shield wall protection products were chosen to be fitted along the corridors of the Drama and Maths departments.
After a site survey was carried out by an Area Sales Manager, 2.0mm thick wall protection panels in Yeoman Shield’s FalmouthEx finish were installed on corridor walls at 1250mm high in Dusty Grey. Alternate panels were placed at 2500mm high in mid grey offering a decorative yet functional scheme that is modern, clean and attractive to the eye.
Corners vulnerable to damage were also protected with Yeoman Shield 75 x 75mm corner protection angles in contrasting Graphite Grey colour.
On the ramp areas of the hallways there is the addition of Yeoman Shield’s 50mm dia. PVCu handrail in Mid Grey mounted on cream PVCu under slung brackets.
