Contour introduces bespoke air conditioning guards

  • 7 Dec 2020

Contour‘s air conditioning guards are made to cover existing or built-in air conditioning units to provide you with a bespoke guard to meet your unique needs. This is an excellent solution for older buildings that have unique ‘quirks’, making them interesting and adding character, but also making them difficult to cater for.

Contour’s air conditioning guards have a variety of key features.


Fully bespoke, the air conditioning guards can cater to a variety of unique design options. This means that every customer gets the best possible product when purchasing their air conditioning guard.

Contour will work with you to decide the best guard for you, whether this is wall/floor mounted or a flat panel. Our air conditioning guards can provide you with a robust, hygienic solution to protect your air conditioning units. These units allow for a 23% open area for airflow. However, to avoid air loss, it’s recommended that plenum is built once the air conditioning guard has been supplied.

Protects air conditioning systems

In public spaces where damages and vandalism are subject to happen, weak air conditioning guards can face destruction that ultimately ruins the unit beneath. This can end up costing a lot of money.

Contour’s air conditioning guards are available in Zintec protected steel in various gauges from 1.5mm up to 2mm to ensure the guards are strong and robust. Where extra strength is needed, Contour can provide a strengthening strut to give the front of the cover additional strength.

Easy access for cleaning and maintenance

All of Contour’s air conditioning guards, whether that’s wall/floor mounted or flat panelled, provide easy access for cleaning and maintenance. This makes cleaning and maintenance especially quick and easy.


Contour’s air conditioning guards are made to be anti-ligature with safe edges and IP3x grilles to reduce injuries and stash point. These anti-ligature features will be best placed in environments like mental health hospitals where there may be vulnerable service users.


BioCote®, a silver-based antimicrobial technology, is introduced at the manufacturing stage to offer protection against various microbes: bacteria, mould, and some viruses. This is painted on in a dry powder coating process, sealing the guard and protecting against and damage and corrosion. It will last the lifespan of the air conditioning guard.

Wall mounted

Contour’s wall mounted air conditioning guard offers protection for expensive heating and cooling units that have been retro fitted or where there has been a change of use in the building/room. In addition, it means access for cleaning and maintenance is easy with a drop-down hinged door.
Furthermore, the flat panelled air conditioning guard offers a solution for air conditioning units that are built into the walls, a drop-down front door for complete access to every internal surface for cleaning and maintenance, and saves space (making it ideal for corridors and high traffic areas).

Floor Mounted

The floor mounted air conditioning guard offers drop-down front door providing complete access to every internal surface for cleaning and protection. Plus, prefabricated cut-outs for vinyl flooring and skirting boards reduce noise and mess on-site.
Finally, to ensure peace of mind, all guards are protected with a 5-year warranty against defects in workmanship and materials for 5 years from the purchase date. Don’t worry, if you require a bespoke solution for your unique needs – Contour has got you covered.
