Tameside Hospital is situated eight miles to the east of Manchester and serves a population of approximately 250,000.
At the new Mental Health Unit the need for longer lasting, hygienic wall protection made CS Acrovyn a natural choice.
In patient areas, severe duty Acrovyn HRB20 combined hand and crashrails provide support for pedestrians whilst protecting walls from impact damage from beds and trolleys. The severe duty handrails were supplied in mint green and charcoal colours to provide visual contrast and meet Approved Document M requirements.
In corridors and other busy areas Acrovyn Sheet, BG10 crashrails and SSM20 corner guards provide impact protection for walls whilst PP76 stainless steel posts divert traffic from vulnerable door frames.
