Contour offers an extensive range of low surface temperature radiator solutions that are designed to meet the heating market’s evolving needs.
Our radiators and radiator covers have been developed to meet the needs of many environments, including the education sector, focusing on the health of children in schools.
To combat the spread of bacteria and improve hygiene in classrooms, Contour’s DeepClean LST radiators and radiator covers use BioCote® to minimise the spread of bacteria in nursery schools, primary and secondary schools, SEN schools and colleges.
Optimised for maximum hygiene and, ultimately, minimal disease, Contour LST products include, but are not limited to:
How Are Contour’s LST Radiator Covers Optimised For Hygiene Using BioCote®?
Contour set benchmarks for hygiene and user protection when they became exclusive partners with the leading provider of anti-microbial technology, BioCote®. Contour became the first UK radiator manufacturer to incorporate anti-microbial technology into radiators and radiator covers.
BioCote® has over 20 years’ worldwide experience in the development and application of anti-microbial technology and guarantee superior anti-microbial performance.
BioCote® supply Contour with anti-microbial additives, which are integrated into the paintwork stage of our manufacturing process for all DeepClean radiator covers. The anti-microbial additives destroy up to 99.9% of bacteria in under two hours, and a significant microbial reduction is clear within just fifteen minutes.
This performance lasts for the lifetime of the radiator cover.
Easy Cleaning Design
Traditional radiator covers tend to be basic, fixed units that are difficult to access, preventing thorough cleaning. They also harbour dangerous levels of bacteria. Internal cleaning requires complete disassembly and assistance from facilities estates personnel. All too often, this proves too difficult and time-consuming, so cleaning is dropped from the priority list.
The results of this?
Dangerous levels of bacteria multiply in and around radiators, causing increased levels of illness in the classroom.
A radiator cover interior that hasn’t been cleaned, combined with the convection process, forms the perfect condition for the multiplication and distribution of harmful bacteria. The risks are all too prevalent year-round, but they increase in winter. During the convection process, dormant bacteria are re-activated with moisture as the radiators heat. The period of stasis ends as the bacteria continue to multiply, and the risk of illness grows.
Hygiene In The Education Sector
Hygiene in education is pivotal to the health and wellbeing of children. When hygiene is optimised, healthier children contribute to better educational outcomes. Contour’s specialist DeepClean designs are fundamental in the refurbishment of schools to undergo a key shift in the welfare of all students and staff. Contour work with educational environments for all age-ranges to build happy and healthy spaces for new generations to learn and grow.
Contour produces a range of innovative, safe surface temperature systems for healthcare, education, mental health, commercial and secure sectors, working in close partnership and collaborating with architects, M&E engineers, NHS Trusts, local authorities, design consultants and contractors to deliver outstanding safe heating solutions.
Contour is the exclusive partner of BioCote® anti-microbial technology for LST and anti-ligature radiators. BioCote® additives reduce bacteria by up to 99.9% and are combined with Contour’s extensive range of colour-paints to coat products for a durable, high-quality finish.
