Pick a colour. Any colour. What about RAL 6019?

Contour is delighted to have recently helped Leighton Hospital with the refurbishment of the children’s ward 16, with the supply of colour co-ordinated DeepClean LST radiator guards. The project was the brain child of the Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s estates management team and involved the refurbishment of the ward in a natural wildlife theme using large format photo prints, back lit photos and colour co-ordinated floors, wall panel systems and fixtures including the radiator guards.

Contour has the capability to supply its LST and anti-ligature radiator guards in virtually any RAL or BS colour available. A selection of these colours can be seen here. In addition protection from germs and bacteria, a long standing benefit for healthcare users of DeepClean radiator guards finished in a traditional white, is not be compromised when using coloured guards as they too are available with the option of a BioCote® anti-microbial additive in the paintwork.

It’s been well documented how the effective use of colour can have a therapeutic effect on people. This is particularly noticeable in healthcare facilities where healthcare providers have increasingly paid attention to the impact of colour and imagery in the building environment and how this this can help speed up patient recovery rates. As well as creating an attractive ambience, it makes good economic sense; the faster people recover the faster they are out of hospital.
