Contour Heating's DeepClean™ anti-ligature radiators are designed for installation in secure environments such as mental health facilities, prisons, custody centres and remand units. The radiators minimise the risk of self-harm by removing potential tamper opportunities and ligature points.

In order to minimize the risk of self-harm, Contour’s latest anti-ligature radiators make use of a grille design incorporating 2mm holes at 4mm centres, punched directly into the radiator guard. This has been tested to IP3x standards (BS EN 60529) by a UKAS accredited laboratory, and is certified to protect against the ingress of objects greater than 2.5mm in diameter.

The new design means that Contour is well placed to meet the needs of UK prisons and secure custodial facilities. The Home Office Police Buildings Design Guide – Custody, July 2009, section PD3.02.14, details that grilles unless otherwise specified, should be perforated with 2mm diameter holes at 4mm centres, in a triangular pitch formation.

Key features

  • A tapered, precision engineered, thermostatic radiator valve shroud which reduces the opportunity for the TRV to be used as an anchor point.
  • All wall and floor fixing points are located internally to protect against non-permitted access, removal or manipulation.
  • An array of security fastenings which include Pin Hex and key locks can be used to ensure fast and simple access for staff but prevent unwanted opening by service users.
  • For wall-mounted anti-ligature radiators, anti-ligature base plates can be securely fixed to the base of a unit.
  • 1.5mm mild steel construction ensures robust performance in the most demanding of environments.
  • Radius edges and bullnose corners protect in the event of a slip or fall, and prevent an anti-ligature radiator being used to self-harm.
