Contour provides hygienic heating with exclusive bacteria protection

Health Mon, Oct 19, 2020 2:24 PM

Leading radiator manufacturers, Contour Heating, share the success of a recent project – which involved the supply of their DeepClean Radiator Guards to improve a hospitals hygiene standard.

Situated in the East Midlands, this hospital wanted to create a hygienic environment for its service users by replacing their old and worn out covers.

The prior radiators at this hospital were outdated, dust would gather inside and get trapped inside the fins.

“Having dirty heat exchangers with difficult access for cleaning and maintenance causes significant dust and bacteria build-up. Within healthcare hygiene is a top priority, this hospital needed easy access for cleaning and maintenance to the heat exchangers underneath to create a hygienic solution.”, commented Robin Mansel, Contour’s Commercial Director.

Through the supply and installation of Contour’s innovative DeepClean radiator guards – with a hinged, quick-release front cover – this East Midlands healthcare establishment was able to benefit from a fresh, hygienic heating solution.

Contour’s DeepClean range of LST and anti-ligature radiators and guards make 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.

BioCote® anti-microbial protection is incorporated as standard into the paintwork of all the LST and anti-ligature options, inhibiting the growth of 99.99% of bacteria within just two hours.

This unique, patented additive provides an effective, safe and long-lasting solution to combatting a wide range of dangerous bacteria, including MRSA and E. coli.

Enhancing safety standards further, ‘pencil-proof’ grilles can be found on all of Contour’s DeepClean range of radiators and guards. Hospitals see people of all ages visiting, such as young children. Smaller grilles minimise the risk of fingers being caught, and the amount of dust and dirt being trapped.
