DeepClean Hospital Radiators: Saving The Healthcare Sector Millions

Contour has enabled the NHS to potentially save over £35 million since 2006. This has been done by developing the innovative DeepClean LST radiator and anti-ligature guard range. Our DeepClean LST radiator can help optimise hygiene within hospitals.

With the use of BioCote® being incorporated at the manufacturing stage, Contour offers optimum protection against various microbes: bacteria, mould, and some viruses.

Saving Costs For Hospital Radiators

In this example, replacing traditional LST units with DeepClean LST radiators or guards could save £47,174.40 in cleaning costs by the end of year 1, or over £314.50 per radiator/guard.

The Benefits Of DeepClean LST Radiators

 

Traditional radiators are a 2-person job when cleaning, taking at least 30 minutes to remove one radiator, this mounts to cleaning 14 LST radiator guards per day. To clean 150 radiators properly, 2 people would need 10 days. Budgeting to at least £52,416 with the National Living range.

Conversely, DeepClean LST radiators require 1 person alone to open the LST casing, taking only 5 minutes to clean properly, including the back of the radiator and the wall behind it. With this, on average 1 person can clean 84 radiators in 7 working hours. At National Living Wage this will cost £5,241.60 per year. This is considerably less compared to the traditional LST radiator.

Contour takes cleaning and hygiene one step further with our DeepClean range, with the benefits of our DeepClean radiators for hospital environments - you can save time costs.

 

Use Of Biocote® In The DeepClean Radiator

The DeepClean range is a low surface temperature radiator guard that includes BioCote® at the manufacturing stage. It’s an anti-microbial agent and offers protection against various microbes.

Combined with cleaning regimes and hand hygiene, BioCote® provides the ultimate protection for hygiene. To view a list of prominent microbes BioCote® has been proven effective against Click Here.

With BioCote®, you can be assured your hospital radiator is sanitary. This is specifically important in hospital environments where hygiene is the main priority to reduce infections.

 

Rotarad Kit For LST Radiators

The DeepClean range is fully compatible with the Rotarad Kit Contour offer. This kit allows for radiators to drop down to the floor in just 2 locks. So, cleaning and maintenance are made simpler and a lot quicker compared to one-piece construction radiators which can become long-winded and problematic to remove.

Cleaning and maintenance become quick and easy with rotated radiator valves this allows the radiators to be rotated down to floor-level. This saves time and labour, as it only requires 1 person alone to properly clean.

Rotarad is an exclusive, WRAS, KTW and ACS approved rotating valve kit, used on both new installation projects, and retrofitted to existing radiators and to eliminate any access problems.

This kit is ideal for hospital environments because the growth of dust and dirt can be easily cleaned without it being hard to reach or trapped. Therefore, reducing the risk of infection rates for all hospital service users.

Conclusion

Contour’s DeepClean LST radiator makes cleaning and hygiene significantly more effective and easier to achieve. With the manufacturing process incorporating anti-microbial agents to reduce the risk of infections, the DeepClean LST radiators overall, have easy access to clean. Saving hospitals millions in costs of labour and ultimately getting more done in the time available.
