Contour Casings has shared examples of its recent work at a Northumberland school, where it recently manufactured and installed new smart radiator guards, to protect children and staff from potentially dangerous hot radiator surfaces.
The new guards at Seghill School incorporate Contour’s latest, and most secure, grille design, using 2mm diameter holes punched directly into the sheet metal.
The grille hole formation exceeds IP3x test standards, which measures a material’s ingress protection against objects greater than 2.5mm in diameter. This makes the grille design suitable for use in the more secure of environments, if required.
The hole formation and pattern also happens to allow greater airflow – by up to 15% – in the casing thereby improve heating efficiency.
