How air conditioning guards provide easy access for cleaning and maintenance – Contour

  • 18 Dec 2020

Easy access for cleaning and maintenance is key for air conditioning units because dust and dirt can be harmful to inhale for individuals.

Having guards that have hinges that allow them to drop down is a practical feature to have. These features will provide easy access for individuals to clean properly to get rid of the dust and dirt that is gathered.

With these hinges, guards can be quickly dropped down without any hassle. Traditional air conditioning guards may require 2 or more people to dismantle the guard to thoroughly clean the unit.

Whereas air conditioning guards with easy access provide straightforward access for one person to clean the guard just in a few seconds.

This is particularly important for environments like hospitals. Especially with recent events and risks of hospital-acquired infections, access for cleaning makes sure that hospitals are comfortable and as safe as possible for all service users.

Contour air conditioning guards, whether that’s wall/floor mounted or flat panelled, provide smooth
access for cleaning and maintenance.

For ultimate hygiene, Contour manufactures BioCote® at the production stage of air conditioning
guards, to offer protection against various microbes such as bacteria, mould and some viruses.

minimise the bacteria that can gather in air conditioning units.

In this process, guards are painted using a dry powder coating which incorporates BioCote®. The
paint will then seals the guards to protect them against damage and corrosion.

Contour air conditioning guards are fully bespoke, anti-ligature and strong to protect units to
maximise their durability and cleanliness.

In addition, to ensure peace of mind, all Contour guards are protected with a 5-year warranty against defects in workmanship and materials for 5 years from the purchase date.
