UPDATED: This blog post about Cleaning radiator covers was updated in March 2020 to reflect more information and latest pictures.
Cleaning traditional radiators has always proved to be a challenge. These radiators tnd to be large, obtrusive, difficult to clean... not to mention that they are a major source of bacterial issues. For thorough cleaning, they require complete disassembly with assistance from estates personnel – a time-consuming, costly and disruptive process.
In light of recent events involving the spread of harmful viruses, now is the time to consider the effectiveness of your current heating system, and whether it provides the best possible guard against infection.
Contour has developed a fast and easy cleaning initiative with our range of LST and anti-ligature radiator covers. These covers (and the radiators that they protect) can be easily cleaned by one operative, with no need for assistance from estates personnel, saving time and reducing cleaning costs.
How To Clean Contour Radiator Covers
Removing a Contour radiator cover for cleaning is quick and simple.
- Twist the simple quarter turn lock to release the casing.
- The one-piece door will drop down to floor level, providing full access to the floor beneath the radiator.
- If Rotarad valve fittings have been installed to the radiator, the radiator can also be dropped to floor level for easy access to the back of the radiator and the wall behind.
- Refit the door by pushing it back into place and locking with the provided key.
Other Benefits Of Contour Radiator Covers
