Interiors New anti-ligature radiator guard offers extra practicality and safety

A new anti-ligature radiator guard that allows easy internal access while overcoming the safety issues raised by installation on uneven walls, has just been launched by Contour, a leading anti-ligature radiators and guards manufacturer. The DeepClean Extra IP3x anti-ligature radiator guard has been specifically developed for the needs of mental health service providers, and delivers both extra practicality and safety. Gaps between a radiator guard and wall can provide potential ligature fixture points. Traditionally these are filled using an anti-pick mastic however this can stop access to inside the guards for cleaning, unless the mastic is cut way. By using an extra frame that sits between the wall and guard door, the DeepClean Extra’s door can be unlocked and opened easily. Gaps between the guard frame and a wall can still be eliminated with anti-pick mastic, but without impeding operation of the door. The DeepClean Extra comes as standard with a grille design using 2mm holes punched directly into the guard case. The grille is compliant with the requirements set out in a Home Office design guide, making it ideal for both secure mental health and custodial facilities.
