Yeoman Rainguard helps Heritage Building keep with Tradition

Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham, new rainwater hoppers and pipes are being installed in stages. Supplied and manufactured in GRP material by Yeoman Rainguard at their head office facilities in Leeds, the Hoppers and Downpipes have been chosen in a design and colour to be in keeping with the art deco style of the Heritage Building which was erected in the early 1930s. Replacing the aging system are Yeoman Rainguard’s GRP 100mm dia. Standard Clip Downpipes and large Highland Rainwater Hoppers in an Agate Grey colour. GRP is a durable and impact resistant construction material which being light- weight can assist the installation on very high rise or multi storey buildings such as the Heritage Building. Once installed this tough rainwater system


s part of the continuing refurbishment of The Heritage Building (the old original hospital) at The Queen

will not require maintenance, other than the occasional clear out, and as a through colour material the UV stable hoppers and downpipes will not be pervious to colour bleaching thus eliminating the need for repainting. Offering 30 plus years of care-free service

Yeoman Rainguard GRP rainwater systems are an economical choice adding to the sustainability of the building and reducing future maintenance costs.

Allgood completes thoughtful design

Maggie’s Centre in Oldham has incorporated Allgood’s Holt ironmongery to complete its thoughtful and hopeful design. Handcrafted from European oak, the Holt range seamlessly blends with the hardwood cross-laminated timber (CLT) building and reduces the impact of

neuropathy for the centre’s patients. A calm and inviting building, the innovative use of hardwood CLT and glass means that visitors are met with a light, open space and views down to the garden below – the inverse of what is expected from a traditional healthcare facility.

0207 387 9951 The therapeutic benefits of carpet

Carpet offers many therapeutic benefits to a healthcare environment. They are naturally sound absorbent and can reduce the conduc- tion of sound impact by 29 dB, which helps to create an acoustically sound environment. Carpets also improve indoor air quality, by

trapping airborne particles, which can cause respiratory distress in the carpet fibre. By choosing a carpet from danfloor’s healthcare collec- tion, which includes an anti-microbial coating, any harmful bacteria which comes into the carpet fibre is killed with a four log reduction rate of 99.99 per cent, thus helping with infection control.

NHS Property Services has converted a former school into a state of the art Child Development Centre – Snapdragons Centre. Part of the £3m project has been the installation of six ceiling track hoists in treatment rooms and care facilities, plus a mobile changing bench and height adjustable basin in toilet facilities, all supplied by Britain’s leading deliverer of intimate independence, Closomat. The hoists mean

that children and young people who are not mobile can be moved easily, safely, and with dignity, without exposing their families, carer and Centre staff to risk of injury through manual handling.
