    1) Hygienic Radiator Covers

Outdated radiator covers are a major source of hygiene issues. Most are closed, inaccessible units that are difficult to clean.

These hygiene issues were dramatically reduced with the advent of Contour’s DeepClean range.  DeepClean radiator guards are designed with unique patented front access panels and locks to allow easy entrance to all parts of the guard. This facilitates regular, thorough cleaning.

DeepClean one-piece covers minimise disruption and installation time. The slimline design is space-efficient, preventing the radiator from becoming an obstacle. DeepClean radiator casings are ideal even for small environments.

Contour offer radiators that have pencil proof grilles. The grille design uses 5.5mm wide radius grilles. The radius grille design makes it easier to clean by being a flat surface.

There are several major benefits of a pencil proof grilles, it can stop the risk of children’s fingers getting caught and small objects from being pushed through the radiator.

Therefore, safe grilles are pencil-proof and punched out for easy cleaning.

2) DeepClean Radiator Covers Save Time and Reduce Costs

Not only does the design of DeepClean guards improve cleaning efficiency and hygiene standards, but the guards also help to reduce overheads. The drop-down front panels allow the radiators to be cleaned quickly and more effectively compared to regular radiators.


Since 2006, DeepClean has potentially saved the NHS hundreds of millions in overhead costs. Read our brochure to find out how.


3) Using BioCote® For Hygiene 

Contour set a standard for hygiene and service user protection, by coating all products with BioCote® antimicrobial additives. BioCote® is the leading antimicrobial technology supplier in the healthcare sector and is pivotal to Contour’s products.

Hygiene really is core to healthcare environments. It’s not just about reducing infection; it’s about saving lives.

BioCote® is incorporated into the paintwork stage of the manufacturing process for both LST and anti-ligature radiator covers. The antimicrobial additives provide optimum, permanent protection against bacteria and mould. Which then can reduce risks of infection in healthcare environments.

A programme of regular testing shows that BioCote® is effective in deactivating or killing groups of pathogens, including the H1N1 Influenza virus, Salmonella and Streptococcus Faecalis bacteria. BioCote® has been proven to reduce the risk of hospital-associated infections by up to 99.96% in under two hours.


4) Anti-Ligature Radiator Covers

Contour offers a whole range of anti-ligature radiators and guards that have set safety benchmarks in the healthcare sector. The anti-ligature range provides innovative features that reduce the risk of self-harm by vulnerable healthcare service users. This is because radiators have safe, smooth edges to reduce ligature risks.

Key Features Include:

  • Ventilation grilles that beat the BS IP3x Ingress Protection test
  • Anti-Ligature TRV kits to allow safe control of the radiator
  • Tamper-proof internal fixings to prevent unauthorised access
