  • Top of the range, premium products

 

1) Contour Offer DeepClean LST Radiator Covers For Easy Cleaning And Safety

Old-fashioned radiators are a major source of hygiene issues. Most are closed, inaccessible units that are difficult to clean.

Old-fashioned radiators source of poor hygiene. Contour radiator covers designed for easy cleaning.

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

All DeepClean radiators are low-surface temperature to reduce the risk of injury.

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 provides anti-ligature variations of DeepClean radiator covers to promote maximum safety in the NHS, mental health facilities and secure custody services.

 

2) Contour’s DeepClean Radiator Covers Save Time and Reduce Costs

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

Cleaning a Contour LST radiator cover is a fast, simple, one-person job.

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

 

3) Contour Is The Only LST And Anti-Ligature Radiator Cover Manufacturer To Use Anti-Microbial Technology 

Contour set a standard for hygiene and service user protection, unreachable to other brands, 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.

5000 people die every year due to hospital-acquired infections. Contour radiator covers are protected with BioCote® to reduce spread of bacteria.

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 to reduce infection in healthcare environments.

A programme of regular testing shows that BioCote® is effective in deactivating or killing colonies 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.
