Looking to refurbish your school with top heating solutions?
Here are ten of the key reasons why Contour’s radiators and radiator guards are top of the class for heating in educational environments.
1) Optimum Hygiene
One of the biggest concerns in schools is hygiene. With hundreds of children mixing and learning together, bacteria can be difficult to control. One of the main sources for germs is radiators; their warm temperatures cause bacteria to spread at their quickest, often infecting children and affecting attendance rates.
To promote health, wellbeing and the ability to learn, Contour works with BioCote® to inhibit the growth of bacteria in and around LST radiators. BioCote® anti-microbial additives are combined with the paintwork used for LST radiator covers to reduce the growth of dangerous microbes by up to 99.99%. The anti-microbial additives have a permanent effect on the radiator covers, extending the lifetime of the covers, reducing the potential for cross-contamination and guaranteeing your school healthier classroom environments.
2) Easy To Clean
While old-fashioned radiators require complete disassembly and assistance from estates personnel, Contour radiator covers can easily be removed by one person for cleaning. Our radiators save cleaning time and costs for schools, allowing budgets to cover extra-academic interests without scrimping on cleanliness.

Contour radiators and radiator covers are long-term investments. Once installed, your cleaning costs are reduced as your covers will be permanently protected from the growth of bacteria and your new cleaning procedure will be quicker and easier:
4) Premium Brand
When you invest in Contour, you invest in the UK’s leading radiator and radiator cover designer and manufacturer. Contour were the first heating solutions company to incorporate anti-microbial technology into radiator covers to improve hygiene in a variety of sectors. Contour are now a partner of BioCote®, who protect all of our radiators and radiator covers. We ensure maximum safety with our ranges of safe surface temperature and anti-ligature radiators, and are well-known for our reliable, bespoke services, where no two orders are the same.
5) Bespoke Designs
Every setting is different, which is why Contour offers free surveying and bespoke radiator designs. We will come to you, analyse your space and advise you as to the best heating solutions. We will take note of any modifications that need to be made during manufacture to avoid any inconvenience for you. Contour bespoke radiator designs include, but are not limited to:
6) Low Surface Temperature Options
Contour low surface temperature radiators and radiator covers tend to be the most popular choice for schools as they are robust, practical and eliminate risks of children burning themselves in classrooms. Contour has been leading the design for LST radiators and radiator covers for over fourteen years to meet the evolving needs of schools. One need will never change though – the need for safety.
7) Anti-Ligature Options
Ideal for Special Educational Needs schools, Contour anti-ligature radiators eliminate risks of ligature and are tamper proof. Contour have addressed anti-ligature needs by incorporating the following into our anti-ligature radiator cover designs:
8) Pencil-Proof Grilles
Small items tend to end up being dropped behind radiators or into radiator covers in schools, often pencils and pens. Contour’s LST radiator covers come with pencil-proof grilles to prevent anything from getting trapped in or around your radiators.
Our anti-ligature grille design uses 2mm diameter holes at 4mm centres, set in a triangular formation, punched directly into the body of the guard. This avoids the need for a separately welded mesh in the body of the guard. The grilles holes exceed the requirements of the BS IP3x test.
9) Colour Choice
When re-shaping your classrooms for functionality and safe heating solutions, it makes sense to re-shape your classrooms from a design point of view too. This isn’t just for aesthetic purposes; research in colour psychology shows that children can benefit from certain colour schemes in learning environments to help them develop creativity and improve focus, as well as alleviate stress and improve productivity. As the International Association of Colour Consultants said, colour is vital ‘in creating surroundings that are conducive to studying’.
