The Contour Story
Armed with this idea, the founding team, including current director Dawn Simpson, approached BioCote® who had recently developed a new powder coating which included silver and was proven to reduce bacteria by up to 99.9%. BioCote had already approached numerous radiator guard and LST radiator manufacturers, who had all doubted the demand for such a solution. Within a short time, a long standing relationship was born between Contour and BioCote, and we became the exclusive licensee of this technology for LST and anti-ligature radiators & guards in the UK. We are still the exclusive licensee of this technology in our market.
Within 6 months, the same manufacturers were beating a path to BioCote’s door to gain access to the same solution, only to find they were too late.
This proposition, aligned to our secure, quick access designs, which enable single person access to radiator guard interiors for regular deep cleaning and maintenance, every year saves the NHS and other healthcare providers potentially millions in cleaning costs, whilst delivering cleaner healthcare environments. These developments quickly redefined the market place and have positioned Contour as a design and innovation leader within the sector.
