DeepClean - LST Radiators

Radiator guards have traditionally been basic, fixed units that make access difficult and time-consuming. Internal cleaning usually requires complete disassembly if the cover is made from multiple panels, or two people to remove the cover if it’s too big for one person and, in the case of hospitals or healthcare facilities, this usually requires extensive assistance from Facilities or Estates personnel.

Ultimately, this impacts on cleaning schedules and hygiene standards. A radiator guard interior that has not been cleaned combined with the convection process, work together to form the perfect conditions for the growth and distribution of potentially dangerous bacteria and particles.

Contour’s DeepClean design makes it possible for a single cleaning operative to access internal and external surface of the radiator guard without any support from a Facilities or Estates department. This allows for full access for cleaning inside the radiator guard. This significantly improves cleaning efficiencies, helps reduce overheads and importantly raises hygiene standards.

Key Features

Whether it’s the full drop down door or the ‘pencil proof grilles’, the DeepClean LST Radiator boasts numerous benefits to the user. Combined with its BioCote® anti-microbial technology and optional rotatory valve kits, these make for the perfect solution in hygiene control.

Radius corners make it safer if someone falls against the unit.
Powder coated inside & outside with Biocote® protection on models finished in RAL 9003 White. Other colours are available.
Made from 1.5mm Zintec steel - gives strength and robustness. 2mm thick casings available for mental health and other secure facility applications. Casings also available in Magnelis for wet and humid areas.
Pencil Proof grilles, punched directly from the guard for ease of cleaning.
Casings up to 2m in length are mostly supplied in one piece - no site assembly required (some casings under 2m may require a split dependant on height and depth.)
Full drop down/removable door, allows full access for cleaning to maintain hygiene and heating efficiency in all environments.
External TRVs available

The Benefits of DeepClean

Major cost savings through ease and speed of cleaning.

Typically one traditional style radiator guard can take well over an hour to disassemble, remove, clean, reassemble and refit, including the removal and subsequent reapplication of silicon sealant between the wall and guard.

The DeepClean design makes it possible for a single cleaning operative to access every internal and external surface of the radiator guard without any support from a Facilities or Estates department.

This significantly improves cleaning efficiencies, helps reduce overheads and importantly raises hygiene standards. The DeepClean radiator guard itself has a unique, patented door design (UK Patent No. 2 410 544) with quick release locks, which allows the complete front of the radiator guard to lower and lie flat on the floor. The open hinge arrangement also permits front door removal if required.

In addition Rotarad™ rotating radiator valves can also be retrofitted to existing panel radiators to allow the emitter to fully pivot down to the floor – delivering access behind the radiator for unrivalled cleaning and maintenance.

The business case for specifying DeepClean

Contour has enabled the NHS to potentially save over £35 million since 2006*

We’ve achieved this by developing the revolutionary DeepClean LST and anti-ligature guard range. On this basis here’s an example costing based on a hospital with 150 radiators that require a full weekly clean.

Traditional LST

2 person job involving estates personnel.

contour-time-icon-1

Conservatively estimate at least 30 minutes to remove 1 LST casing, clean casing internally, clean radiator, clean wall, clean floor and refit casing (wall & back of radiator cannot be cleaned). Excludes replacing silicon sealant around unit. 

Vector (3)

7 hours working day = 14 LST radiator guards cleaned per day per team. 

Group 206

Over 10 days required for 2 people to clean the 150 radiators in the property. 

contour-2-person-job-icon-1

Weekly cleaning of these radiators would require 2 teams of two staff, both working at least 5 days a week to complete 1 cleaning cycle. 

Group 245

An annual budget of at least £63,481.60 at the National Living Wage (£8.72 ph as of 19/5/21) would be required to clean all 150 radiators on a weekly basis. 

DeepClean LST

Vector (4)

1 cleaning operative alone can now open the LST casing. 

contour-time-icon-1

5 minutes to clean every internal surface of the casings and the radiator, including back of radiator and whole wall space. No need to replace sealant around units. 

Vector (3)

In an avergae day of 7 working hours, 1 person can clean 84 radiators. 

Group 206

Allow 2 days for 1 person to clean every radiatir in the property. 

Vector (4)

Weekly cleaning would now realistically require only 1 dedicated cleaner, with little or no support from the estates department. 

Group 245

At the National Living Wage (£8.72 ph as of 19/5/21) weekly cleaning of these radiatirs would cost the hospital £6,348.16 per year.
