What Type Of Environments Require Air Conditioning Guards?

Any public or private environment, or settings that could cater to vulnerable people or where unauthorised access to the units is prohibited.

Air conditioning units are expensive, so a guard will be necessary for environments that are more prone to vandalism.

We discuss below some environments that would benefit from protection services such as air conditioning units.


Air Conditioning Guards For Mental Health Hospitals

An anti-ligature product is one that reduces the risk of someone tying material around a piece of furniture to inflict harm to themselves or anyone else, particularly beneficial in mental health settings.

Contour's air conditioning guards are anti-ligature with safe edges and IP3x grilles to reduce injuries that can be life-threatening to individuals.

In these environments, vandalism may be more prone. The guards are made with Zintec protected steel in various gauges from 1.5mm-2mm to ensure the guards are strong and robust.

Also, when extra strength is needed, we can provide a strengthening strut to provide the front of the cover with additional strength.
