How does BioCote protection work on LST radiator guards?

  • 24 Sep 2019

Contour is the only UK company to incorporate BioCote®’s antimicrobial protection into LST and Anti-ligature radiator guards, reducing microbes such as MRSA and E.coli by up to 99.9%. BioCote® provides effective, hygienic and long-lasting protection to Contour LST and Anti-ligature radiator guards.

BioCote® is a silver-based antimicrobial technology that is integrated into materials at manufacturing stage to provide protection against a wide range of microbes such as bacteria, mould and even some viruses. It lasts for the lifetime of the product, is always on and perfectly complements existing cleaning regimes to provide the ultimate hygienic protection.

The antimicrobial technology is integrated into the powder coating of Contour radiator guards. Contour’s LST radiators are painted using a dry powder coating process, which includes BioCote® antimicrobial technology. This process seals the paint to the surface of the LST and protects it against scratches and damage that could otherwise expose the metals.

Contour’s LST radiators are coated with 60 microns thick powder coating as standard but this can also be as thick as 90 microns, giving an even and smooth coating across the entire surface.

In hygiene conscious environments such as schools and hospitals, this can reduce the presence of potentially harmful microbes such as MRSA and E.coli which can affect school absenteeism and hygiene.

BioCote® has been proven effective against a wide range of microbes, and the technology is used extensively across a wide range of industries. The premium performance of BioCote® is not just supported by laboratory data, but by a wide range of real life case studies in a number of hygiene conscious environments such as hospitals, care homes, schools, food production facilities and more.

Take a look at the Microbial A-Z to see some of the notable microbes BioCote® has been proven effective against.
