Wasps Affiliate Partnership Announced

SHY is delighted to have joined Wasps' Affiliate Partner Programme 2019/20

We are delighted that SHY is now an official Wasps Affiliate Partner for the 2019/20 season.

Wasps, based at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, has a proud history in rugby over the last 150 years and currently compete in the Gallagher Premiership, Heineken Challenge Cup, and the Premiership Rugby Cup.

As part of their Affiliate Partner Programme agreement, SHY has manufactured state-of-the-art, motorised blinds for the Ricoh Arena’s Premier Lounge. Retracted, the blinds allow full view of pitch and when in use, a complete black-out solution for non-matchdays.

Gerrard Herring, our Managing Director explained, “We were delighted to be approached by Wasps Rugby and Ricoh Arena to discuss an Affiliate Partnership. It was clear that they had high expectations to enhance the stunning pitch views from their Premier Lounge for hospitality purposes, whilst achieving room darkness for their numerous presentations and exhibition events.

“SHY Shading worked with the stadium team to provide a full turn-key solution, utilising our large ZIPTM gravity drop blinds with build-in obstacle detection technology. Neatly colour-matching the hardware to the windows, the blinds retract so an uninterrupted view of the pitch is enjoyed when they are not in use. We look forward to continuing our partnership and supporting Wasps in the season ahead.”

Wasps Chief Executive Stephen Vaughan said: ‘’SHY are one of the best in the industry and to see their actual product installed in one of our largest event spaces is testament to Gerrard and his team.

“We are extremely excited about working with SHY on this partnership and look forward to supporting them on their exciting activation ideas throughout the season.”
