Padded Radiator Cover

Ensuring safe heating in public spaces is crucial, particularly in environments catering to vulnerable individuals. Traditionally, LST (Low Surface Temperature) or Anti-Ligature Radiators have been the go-to solutions. However, these may not be ideal for every setting.

In areas designed for children, infants, or those in SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities), SEN (Special Educational Needs), ASN (Additional Support Needs), ALN (Additional Learning Needs), and PRU (Pupil Referral Units) environments, the primary safety concern is preventing accidental collisions with objects. For these settings, soft surfaces are essential.

Key Features

Contour's innovation in safe heating solutions has empowered us to collaborate with NHS trusts to design and develop soft padded radiator covers that ensure full accessibility. Our radiator covers significantly enhance physical safety, particularly benefiting environments with Special Educational Needs (SEN), Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), Additional Support Needs (ASN), and Additional Learning Needs (ALN). These solutions are also ideal for Pupil Referral Units (PRU), providing superior safety without compromising hygiene standards.

Enhanced Safety: Our padded radiator cover offers an extra layer of protection, making it ideal for schools, nurseries, care homes, playrooms, bathrooms, and sensory rooms. The 45mm thick foam padding provides added safety without compromising on durability.
Accessibility: We prioritise accessibility and ease of maintenance. Our DeepClean Padded Radiator Covers feature compression locks, allowing full access for cleaning and maintenance while ensuring the safety of vulnerable individuals.
Customisation: Every environment is unique, and our padded radiator covers are tailored to meet your specific requirements. Choose from a range of grille options, including pencil-proof or anti-ligature designs, to suit your needs. Additionally, the opening for the grilles can be customised or removed as per your preferences.
Durable Construction: Crafted from high-quality materials, our covers are built to last. The 6mm MDF wood backboard, 38mm 50kg/m³ foam, and 600gsm vinyl covering ensure longevity and resilience. The vinyl is flame-resistant and also easy to clean with an anti-fungal finish, maintaining hygiene and safety standards.
Versatile Design: Whether you prefer a sloping or flat top design, our padded radiator covers are available in both options. Plus, each cover is made to measure, ensuring a perfect fit for your space.
