Robust Build

School corridors and classrooms receive a lot of traffic, with bags banging against things and on the odd occasion things thrown around.

Contour has designed its LST radiator guards with safety in mind, ensuring product durability is maximised to limit the risk of damage. They’re made out of 1.5mm Zintec mild steel, resisting corrosion to further enhance the resilience of the radiator.

The radiator covers also come with additional folds to give it a higher level of strength making it more resistant to the day-to-day wear.

Contour also offers a range of additional options when you purchase LST radiators to further boost the durability of your radiator in a school environment.

Stainless steel options that are stronger and more resistant to damage are available as well as the options of adding magnelis to your covers that have the strength of steel and more resistant to rust.

Some areas require vertical or bespoke radiator guards, such as sports halls, or even behind apparatus equipment.

Exclusive Biocote® Protection

Contour provides the only radiator guards that are powder coated with Biocote, an antimicrobial technology that provides effective protection against harmful bacteria, mould, fungi and viruses by up to 99.99%.

This protection is a no brainer when it comes to schools and nurseries where children are prone to catching germs.

Quicker Cleaning Means Lower Costs

Contour have specifically designed a DeepClean radiator range to improve cleaning efficiency and hygiene standards, resulting in reduced overheads.

The drop-down front panels and quick release locks allow easy access to the radiators so they can be cleaned quickly and more effectively than regular radiators.

For even further cleanliness, Rotarad valve fittings can be added to allow for the whole radiator to be easily removed by a cleaner lowering it down to floor level.
