Contour has successfully supplied and installed 68 covers, replacing old radiators that caused ligature risks. These radiators were supplied and installed in 3 wards and a psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) in this mental health hospital.
New radiator covers meant that this mental health unit had increased the safety in their wards dramatically.
The context of this mental health unit is important to keep in mind. Due to it being a low – medium secure mental health establishment with a PICU unit, ligature issues needed to be addressed.
It was the top priority for this project to increase the safety for all Service Users by taking away the ligature risk and stash point opportunity the existing covers posed.
